Beerntsen's has always been an old fashion ice cream parlor. I'm 67 years old now but I remember going to Beerntsen's as a kid. There products were always home made and fresh. The ice cream was out of this world, Candies were made from all quality products, and the caramel corn was to die for. I know things change with... More

Old time ice cream parlor with lunch as well! All food has a homemade taste! Love the SubDeb, it is my favorite Sunday!

Stopped here for ice cream on busy Sunday afternoon. Place was crowded but there was one table for us to sit. Eventually someone took our orders and later brought ice cream. Mine was delicious! They do have a broad selection of ice cream that looked tasty. Paying the bill was unnecessarily complicated, but eventually it was done. Good value overall.

A waitress dropped off some water after 5 minutes and disappeared. We left after 10 minutes when no one showed up to take our order.

This place is topnotch. Not only does it bring you back in time (it was established in 1932) but the candy, ice cream, phosphate soda, and food was amazing. Every employee in the place (we went there two days in a row!) was exceptionally nice and very well trained. The carmel corn and other candy we purchased was the best... More

We were looking for a place to get icecream and came upon this place. It is nice inside. The restaurant is in the back and can be confusing when you walk in since you are initially confronted with a chocolate store. The different kinds of sundays can be overwhelming but we were very pleased with the taste. We also were... More

Wonderful, authentic candy shop and fountain. Exquisite tile and furnishings take you back in time. The chocolates and sundaes are delicious, and the lunches tasty, making a very nice all around experience.

The ice cream was amazing. Could not believe how good the marshmallow topping was. Bought tool shaped chocolate box for my husband, he said they were really good.
