Enjoyable choices

We only come to this place for ice cream so I can't rate the food element of it. We enjoy the various choices of soft serve that you can have. The cyclone mixes are tasty and worth it.

This past visit we got Angelfood flavored milkshakes. The taste is unique and one of my favorite milkshakes from anywhere.

Food is pretty good for an ice cream parlor. I've gone to lunch here several times, and they have some pretty good sandwiches, soups, and baskets in town. They're ice cream has the best selection in town. They are super friendly here. They also have outdoor seating, and a playground for children.

Food was disappointing, service was good. We found the Original BBQ which is just a short drive from here to be much better.

I'm old enough to remember the BBQ Cottage restaurant on Front Street in Harrisburg, and must say that this place continues the great sandwiches we enjoyed there some years ago. This place is not a hang-out or cruising spot like the Cottage was, but the simple atmosphere and great service is what we like. The folks who operated this restaurant... More

I had the red pork sandwitch combo (which is bassicly just a normal pulled pork sandwitch) with the boardwalk fries they advertise having..and as the title says, dissapointed i was. They have signs screaming about their BBQ... More

This is a great place to take the kids for some casual "drive in" dinner and ice cream. There is an outdoor service window with picnic tables on the deck and a tiny indoor service counter with a few indoor tables. The kids enjoy the playground area . There are daily specials. They have the standard assortment of fries -... More
