Our ice cream break.

Fast food place, they make their own waffle cones and have an excellent supply of hardpacked ice cream.

A new twist on cheese fries using waffle fries- very tasty! Very busy little place with many menu choices. Ice cream was the most popular item that we saw being bought, but then it was 2pm when we stopped. Great stop for a quick bite.

This is the Island version of any small town Dairy Queen. They have improved the menu quite a bit since new ownership. There is always a line out the door, but service is pretty quick. They have a great breakfast and ice cream here after a day at the beach is a must!

Had breakfast here twice. Breakfast sandwich was $4.00 and coffee was $1.00. Order and they bring it to your table. Not fancy at all, but a popular place for the locals. A bargain and worth a stop.

Daddy Franks is easy to find, just look for the line coming out the door. I visited during lunch and found Katelyn who had waited on us at Circle M. So nice to see a familiar face. We asked for her recommendation and went with it. We started off with Irish fries. A basket of waffle fries topped with cheddar... More

The place everyone goes for ice cream on a hot summer's night. Great breakfast, lunches. Good service - it is just the place to go.

Ordered pizza from here. Could have rung the grease out into a cup. Looks like it is run by teenagers. Cook was more interested in texting than watching the food he was cooking. We decided to give it another try. They were out of the first couple of things we ordered. We we did have was not that greatest. The... More

We were on the island for a week and thought this was a great place. Stopped in for snack, late lunch and breakfast and was very happy with all 3. Even had pizza one night as an appetizer at a family dinner. It was nice to be able to sit outside with our dog and enjoy the weather. The people... More

Our hotel owner told us to go there for pizza...wrong! Overpriced, small, no flavor, minimal toppings....just not good in general. The food is prepared by young teenagers and the owner doesn't seem to get off her chair at the register. She doesn't even see the quality of the food being served. Witnessed some poor hygiene standards while making food and... More
