“Great restaurant for the family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This place doesn't just serve delicious ice cream & desserts, they make good food too and the portions are very generous. If you have children, they have a good selection of kid's meals with some healthy options. The servers are very friendly and always checking on your needs. This is a very popular restaurant to locals and visitors so expect to wait to be seated if you're coming during lunch/dinner time, especially on weekends. If you have kids, i suggest you come early or in between lunch/dinner time.

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We saw the creamery on Man vs. Food and decided that we must go there and try the kitchen sink. We did have dinner there which was great food, although a little pricey. For dessert the one and only kitchen sink. Eight flavors of ice cream, 8 toppings, bananas, whip cream, cherry and nuts made this a great family adventure. We were absolutely stuffed by the time we left. It was fun

“Not as amazing as expected but still good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We almost didn't eat here due to the long wait. We took a 10 minute walk because there wasn't much room to wait inside or outside. We came back to wait 10 more minutes and during that time one of the loud children who was outside spilled water everywhere, including on us. Once inside we looked at the other tables to see what looked good. Families loved spoiling their little children by ordering the kitchen sink ice cream & finishing less than 1/4 of it. If you don't like seeing food go to waste, don't eat here.

We ordered the French dip sandwich, grilled eggplant sandwich & ice cream. The French dip, fries, and homemade ice cream were all average. The homemade cole slaw was disappointing. However, the grilled eggplant sandwich was very good.

“Great for family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great ice cream, hamburgers and amaing fries. The place to take the kids following a Fantasy Forum production or a movie. Lines out the door for the take out ice cream and lines at the hostess station but worth the wait!.
