“Good ice cream with average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

We enjoyed the dessert the most. A scoop of freshly made ice cream. Who can complain about that? Sandwiches were ok. Nothing to write home about.

“If we go back it will be through the drive-thru.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I figured this was the sort of place that people went to because of some sentiment from when they were younger, and maybe Mary Coyle's was cooler. I think I am right. The ice cream we had there was excellent, we shared an "ice cream creation" that consisted of strawberry and banana ice cream and strawberry/coconut.pineapple topping. But the servers were wearing extremely old uniforms and the decor was horrible. I am all for nostalgic restaurants with costumed employees, but this place was just in need of an overhaul. Mostly it was the outfits, but the booths looked like they could use a new reupholstering as well.

If we go back it will be through the drive-thru.

“When we were here our ice creams had very little flavor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Both our ice creams had very little flavor in them when we were here I don't know if they make ice cream that way all the time or if they were just off that day.

Good sandwiches, but the Ice Cream Creations are the best.

“Nieghborhood favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Place is a veritable institution. Lots of teenagers celebrate birthdays with the wall of ice cream. Besides ice cream, food is pretty average well stacked with sodium.
