A great family place to relax and have a great lunch or dinner. Good selection but the taste is what makes you come back for more. You will certainly be glad you came after just one visit.

Thought it was just a drive in, didn't realize they had a dining room. Stopped for ice cream after dinner. Fun place, lots of nostalgia. Menu looks good. Ice cream was excellent.
