We had a nice sandwich, and splurged on an ice creme for desert. The place is incredibly clean and fresh feeling. Locals and tourists seem to enjoy it. It has a nice old fashion counter with small tables about. Everything is freshly made and there is plenty to choose from.

We stopped in for lunch and had good sandwiches and soups. The service is friendly and the traditional counter gives the place the feel of an old-fashioned soda fountain. Prices are reasonable and the location is convenient to the historic district and many other attractions.

We stopped by here after a "not so good" lunch at another restaurant and it was the highlight of our afternoon. The ice cream was outstanding and two scoops were huge! We had them in a waffle cone and were pleased with the service (excellent) and the price of the cones. We will be back to try more flavors!!!!

It has a old time ice cream parlor feel. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. The salted carmel was delicious and as a bonus, it also had chocolate chunks. Others in our group tried the butter pecan, cotton candy, rum raisin, and chocolate and everyone enjoyed!

Have been going here with our children for 20 years and I know they are looking forward to bringing their children here as well. It has become a favorite tradition! Our son drew a picture of an ice cream cone when he was 5 and we had it framed and presented it to the parlor where it still hangs 7... More

Marilyn's lunches are scrumptious but the ice cream - specifically the sundaes & milk shakes are to die for!!! Have a warm brownie sundae or the dream cicle milk shake (our faves) or a "Prince of Tides" or maybe a "Great Santini)!!! Chocolate & caramel know no bounds - HOORAY!!!

This little ice cream shop is hidden away a little in a line of shops off the main Bay street. Since we were waiting for our reservation (which was 2 hours away) we decided to stop in and grab some ice cream. The ice cream was delicious and the 1 scoop in my sugar cone was HUGE! And the ice...
