A little gem in Port Henry. Whether you are passing through or staying at one of the many campgrounds, this is a must stop! The ice cream and Michigan sauce are ridiculous!

Still going strong after all these years. This was the place to go when I was growing up and still one of my favorite spots when I go home. Live in Minnesota and they've never heard of a Michigan!
