Fun, delicious, retro!

I enjoyed my ice cream, but it was on the pricey side. This place has a fun vibe. It has the feel of an old soda fountain joint, jukebox and all.

I really liked the ambiance to this place: retro well done. The soda fountain works, the jukebox works from your table, the place looks like the 50-ish/60ish. That said, the burgers and fries were mediocre at best. Kind of lukewarm, not very tasty. The milk shake was also not even in the top 10 I ever tasted. But if you... More

It was just a little diner right near the harbor, but it was cute, very, very affordable with great views and tasty food!

We stopped in for ice cream after being frustrated and walking out of elevated ice cream down the street. The service here is refreshingly friendly! There is a lovely patio view out back. Stop in, you won't be sorry!

If you would like to step back in a classic soda fountain and have great food this is the place. It's on the main drag in PT. ver friendly staff.

Fun old fashioned ice cream and fountain shop that is very nostalgic. Very fun and great selection of fountain items to choose from.

Soda Fountain atmosphere, with a jukebox and real ice cream sodas. You can sit outside by the water if it is nice outside, but you may be visited by sparrows!

This is an oldies, fifties restaurant! The floor has black and white checkered tiles, old fashioned juke boxes, with a view of the ocean behind the restaurant, a lovely garden out back. The wait staff do a good job. The suggestion here is for them to have their food hot, the ice cream is great, the atmosphere is great

Stopped by here for ice cream cones, which we have done previously. Started to order the junior size for $2.50, then decided to go with the single for $3.25, expecting a larger serving. What we got was a tiny amount of ice cream even smaller than what you would expect for a kiddie cone. Ice cream tasted good but we... More
