Very good place for sandwiches, soups and salads. Everything very fresh and tasty. Good chili year round, specials every day. Home made potato chips served hot from the cooker. Oh year, be sure to save room for ice cream.

Yummy ! Go hungry. Everything is delicious from homemade soups to ice cream AND strawberry shortcake. Atmosphere is 1950's nostalgia. The service is outstanding. The prices are excellent.

We make an annual pilgrimage to Englewood, Florida every summer to visit with family and Lickity Split is always a must on our itinerary. The best homemade ice cream anywhere. Reasonably priced, huge variety of homemade ice cream, generous portions, and super friendly staff. YUM!!!

Seemed to run into a turf war as to who had our table. The guy that was supposed to be doing it was hunched over the cash register. When a nice lady filled in, she got scolded and we were stuck with him again. BLT sandwich - shredded lettuce instead of nice leaves. Skimpy on bacon and tomoto. Soup not... More

A great place for lunch and of course ice cream! Where else can you buy an old fashioned banana split. Sandwiches are very good but chili and soups tend to be thin.
