My wife and I just had lunch there. Both of our meals were good, although the fries I had were just average. The waitress was super friendly and efficient. They have a typical diner menu, with the addition of a great variety of ice cream dishes. Will definitely eat here again.

Stopped here for lunch while visiting the area. The atmosphere of this place is a very nice and clean 50's era themed soda fountain restaurant. The menu is very basic, but the food was good. I'm just glad we were not on a time schedule because the wait staff was very slow. There seemed to be no one managing the... More

Food takes FOREVER to come. Don't go on a lunch break if you haven't pre-ordered or you will run out of time. Chili was cold in the middle( microwaved perhaps?) and my French onion soup wasn't hot enough to melt the slice of Swiss laid on top. Good ice cream, that's it!

Our cheeseburgers were good, and the hand-cut fries were great. Our server was very friendly, but never returned after delivering our food. When we were finished, a different server picked up the slack and asked if we wanted ice cream, and brought our check, but then we had to stand in line at the register for ten minutes to pay,...

When we stayed in Stamford, New York which is a bit of a way up the road from this lovely ice cream shop, we went here let's say much more than once. It was definitely worth the trip for my coconut ice cream with Oreo cookies milk shake. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!!

This is basically a fast food ice cream restaurant. We ordered 3 diners and they were very good. The prices are reasonable and they have a very nice menu such as wraps and hamburgers. The staff is very friendly and it appears the location is frequented by local residents. The restaurant offers specials on a daily basis such as Prime... More

Sorry you had such a bad day. We only serve REAL mashed potatoes and we have served this Turkey Feast for 4 years and maybe you are #2 to complain after 1000's of these dinners. Guess we can not make them all happy but we do try hard to keep everything clean and to serve nice meals at very reasonable... More

Wow let me just start by saying I have no idea what these other people are talking about! Me and my family go to Sundaes all the time, and ever since the new owners have it, it's only gotten better! For starters they did a wonderful job rebuilding the place! The waitresses are always so friendly and quick to help... More
