“A lot of money for mediocre food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

I used to dine here often but I haven't been in years before today. I enjoy there ice cream and milkshakes even though there a bit pricey. On this occasion I ordered a bacon cheese burger and fries.The server was very friendly.But the food came out so quick they must precook there burgers. This became more apparent once I tasted the food. The burger was dry and lacking flavor.The fries are OK but obviously frozen and purchased in bulk. I'll return for ice cream but I'm not eating here again. I used to love this place when I was a kid. Hope they can improve.

“Best icecream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

They have the best ice cream. Whether you get soft or hard ice cream you won't be disappointed. The servings are large. See you next season.

“super”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Expected the ice cream to be great due to the lines in the evening, but the food is even better. The burgers are just delicious and the seafood fresh and tasty. I second the onion rings!
And a bonus, it's dog friendly.

“Ice cream was superior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is one of the few places where ice cream tastes like ice cream. Rich and creamy. A great many topping were available. It is crowded but the staff handled the crowds quickly and professionally.

“Delish!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Just happened to stop and to get a sundae and there were too many types to choose from. All the toppings were kept wrapped up until ready to serve. We had the Reese Peanut Butter cup sundae and added hot fudge because we could! Delish!
