Fun and Good!

The atmosphere is like stepping back into the 50's. It all tasted amazing!!! The sweets had the best flavor. They are kind and provided great service.

So much homemade selection - so hard to choose! We split 3 items, butter cookie, pecan bourbon bread pudding & pecan bar! All was delicious! All sorts of coffees and beverages! Great place to go for breakfast or between meal snack! I will return again and again.

We spent 5 days in Fredericksburg and we ate here 4 times. We had sandwiches and salads at lunch time and we consumed quite a bit of WONDERFUL ice cream. The Mexican vanilla was "To die for". Also tried some of the bakery items and loved them also. Be sure to stop by for some of these goodies. You'll be... More

Went there based on reviews here. What a MAJOR disappointment! This is the second best restaurant in Fredericksburg!? Wow ... Why why why does a lunchmeat sandwich cost $8.49? Just the sandwich. Nothing else. Wow. The bread was dried out and like I said, this was just a grocery store sandwich. Processed turkey. Wow. Okay. We live, we learn. My... More

I am sorry your visit to Clear River was not as you expected. I am a little puzzled about your experience. At first I thought maybe you were in a different restaurant since we only serve Boars Head deli meats and make our own bread Fresh each day. There is no "processed meat" in our store. In fact, Boars Head... More

I was just there yesterday, and wasted so much time just trying to decide what I wanted since everything is sooo good. There sandwiches, cookies, ice cream, shakes, coffee drinks, and so much more. I haven't found one thing there to complain about. They do great boxes for groups of lunches and or just holiday cookies. If you haven't been... More

This place hand makes all their own ice cream. It is fresh and tastes real. They also make all the baked goods fresh daily. The sandwich bread is so fresh it melts in your mouth. I love their shakes and malts.

This great soda fountain shop offers amazing sandwiches and delicious icecream treats. We were lucky to find a table just before the Fredericksburg Christmas Parade. Fun and Reasonable.

We did not eat a meal here, but we stopped in for ice cream one afternoon. It was so good that we did it again the next day. They make their own, and the desserts and pastries are amazing. Feels like an old fashioned diner or malt shop.
