Driving a country road with the GPS and came across this adorable little place serving ice cream sodas and frozen yogurt. We had to stop and I had a cherry frozen yogurt and my husband had a banana shake. The grill closed at 9pm but the menu looked good. They even serve Moxie! A fun nostalgic find. Outdoor seating under... More

The bison cheeseburger was good, so were the French fries. Ice cream seems to be the local favorite here though. It's a little cramped inside, and very busy.

Their soft serve ice cream is fantastic. They offer vanilla, chocolate, and 2 rotating flavours. It is smooth and delicious! They also offer Turkey Hill hard ice cream flavours including some hard to find seasonal flavours.

This is our stop for ice-cream in the summer or anytime we're traveling though. They offer fun food that is better than fast food and more fun. They have soft serve and hard ice cream, with two extra soft serve flavors a week. Small in size, but big on service. Lots of outdoor seating in the warmer months.

We took our grandchildren for a quick lunch, and had a great time. Not only did we have a good meal, they also have a small zoo for the kids to experience. They had a great time. Also the folks who work there were very nice and helpful. I would definitely go there again

Can't believe this place hasn't been rated yet!!! I give it a 10+ when it comes to food and service. My husband had a chicken with bacon sandwich and chili that were absolutely AWESOME!!! And, I had a Baked Potato with Broccoli and Cheese Sauce which was HUGE and to die for!!! The atmosphere is more of a small diner... More

A lot of people go here for the ice cream. they have a lot of flavors in soft serve and they also sell hand dipped ice cream. The sundaes and banana splits are incredible. Try to finish one of those on your own!. However, a lot of people don't seem to realize until they get there, that they sell really... More
