1950's style ice parlour. Great surroundings with old fashions pictures and candy. Homemade ice and sundaes are excellent with everything you could want on them. I found the food to be ok if you into burgers anfd fries.I go for the ice cream which cannot be beat.

Great homemade ice cream and chocolate. The food is good NY diner style. Before Easter the entire back dining room is turned into Easter Bunny Land. Take the kids and go!

Grew up in Massapequa and started coming here in the 1960s and no matter how much time passes between visits, this gem stands the test of time. Recent dinner and ice cream with party of 12 for birthday celebration. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate. Fun experience!

This place is great for a home style meal! Their homemade ice cream is delicious. It can get crowded at night and weekends . Brings back memories of the soda fountain days.

Sit in a booth or at the counter. Wait times vary on time of day, seasons or if a production of a local school play just let out. Because everyone is headed to Krisch's to celebrate after an event.
