Got a quick cheap dinner here. I had a burger and husband had a dog. Both were good. Fries were definitely good!! Best part was dessert. The ice cream was amazing. We loved the toasted coconut!

Stopped here for a quick lunch bite and it was well worth it. Great burger & Chicago dog - and they use real WI cheddar cheese! Very tasty shakes, too!

Great grouper dinners and even greater hot dogs. Pick up for a dinner on the causeway for a sunset. Lot of ice cream flavors and a very friendly staff
