On our Orlando Vacation we took a drive to the "Weeki" springs, and drove here for lunch after the springs. We're glad we did. This buildings are all retro themed and fun. The food was awesome. Between my wife, 2 teenagers, and a 9 year old, not a single complaint. That was an amazing accomplishment in itself! The food was... More

My father-in-law 55 years ago, from this day, had his first Coney Island Hotdog. Today we drove over 2 hours for him to have another slaw dog. The footling slaw dog was a delicious steamed dog. We added the mans made potato chips. But our other favorite is the smothered French fries. This place is a must try!

I had a long with coney sauce and onion, also added cheese, a small fry, and a drink. All of this for a grand total of $7.00. The hot dog was awesome. You can never get a long hot dog anymore unless it's Sonic's (which isn't amazing). The French fries were great too! The customer service gets a big thumbs... More

They have the best hot dogs. A great place to go for lunch, dinner and entertainment. Cozy place with old unique decor. Brooksville's best hidden eatery.

We had been meaning to try Coney Island for awhile now...It's an older eclectic restaurant and I've heard many good things about it, but you just never know if it's for you or not... While visiting Boyett's Grove with some out-of-town relatives(2 adults/5 kids), we decided to try it for lunch. When you walk in the door, the counter and... More

Stopped for pie in town at 4:10 PM on a Saturday and all was closed but the Island and it was PACKED. A ten minute wait for a black and white shake seemed a bit questionable but it made the ride home a nice long one. The shake is the best they offer and despite with long hot wait the... More

Love the food, love the people, love the atmosphere. Great food choices and an old time laid back place to enjoy your food and the company. Friends are always showing up to join you. Truly a Brooksville/Hernando County landmark/must eat.

Step back in time for great dogs, fries & milk shakes. Really good selection and the feel of the sixties. Service is great at the counter with a friendly staff. Then sit back and enjoy.

We were on our way home from Mount Dora and took a wrong turn and just happened to find this place by mistake. We loved the food and the atmosphere. Their fried corn is the best I have ever eaten!! We clocked the distance to home and it is 30 miles away. We will be going back this weekend. Well... More
