“overpriced garbage!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

My boyfriend and I went there to get a quick, cheap yummy meal but it was anything but!! He ordered a 1/2 Ib hamburger, I ordered the perch and we got 2 chocolate malts. The total came to 20.40 Way too expensive for the meal we received. His hamburger was burnt and had cheese on it(he hates cheese). My perch was pretty dry and bland, and our malts were just crappy ice cream with whoppers crushed up in them! And the service there is never friendly. Rude, and they all just stand there staring at you awkwardly while your trying to look over the menu. you would be better off going across the street to McDonalds.

“low end soft serve icecream,expensive, very rude unfriendly staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Very low end soft serve ice cream, the taste reminded of the free crap you would get at a ponderosa or other similar place..If you truly want decent ice cream that tastes rich go to Browns Dairy Dock in Marblehead..Big servings, cheaper prices,better grade of soft serve!

“Great berry milkshakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I have gone past this place many times over the years. I finally stopped in and tried one of the Raspberry shakes and am addicted. Service is fast. Best shakes I have had in a long time. Not like the fast food "shakes". Service with a smile.

“Nice family owned business...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Great menu selection (though a bit pricey on some things) and good service. The family owned operation is definitely a good place to eat.

“Wonderful Fried Chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This chicken is better that KFC or Mr. Chicken. Well worth stopping in. The pieces are big and the prices very reasonable. Casual atmosphere. Order at a window and when it is ready they put it on a tray for you to take to your table.
