Had a sausage burger there. My kids had hotdogs. I'd rather eat my shoe. Pure crap. Even if it were 50 times better it would still be overpriced.

Breakfast foods are cooked to order and served by friendly waitresses. A typical, yet consistently good breakfast experience. They want all their customers to be happy and enjoy their food. Free coffee refills. Miniature golf course and ice cream located just outside of their front door.

We manged to arrive just in time for a very late lunch, and received attentive service, good food, and got a dose of local color. Clearly a Stephentown fixture.

Just stopped here for breakfast and we really enjoyed our meal. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food was good but best of all it was clean! We will definitely come back.

Went there for breakfast. Place is clean and decent. Food was good, nothing to get excited about, nothing bad, good place for what it is, a diner type place.

This is a typical "greasy spoon,", but I mean that in an affectionate and appreciative way. Are you going to get great cuisine? No. But are you going to get hot, comforting, down-home food? Yes. In my opinion, the lunch options are not as good as the breakfast. The breakfast portion is only open until about noon, I believe, and... More

First visit for lunch. Good casual breakfast and lunch menu. Food was very fresh and tasty. Soups were excellent (mushroom). Prices very fair. Seating is indoor or outside. There is an ice cream bar and hot dog/ hamburg, etc. stand outside for drive up and outside eating. Also a driving range and small miniature golf for children. Grounds were neatly... More

This is a roadside ice cream and snack stand with, in addition, a dining room, a driving range, and mini golf! It was too hot for golf when we went, but we loved the soft serve. We also noticed that they offer eggplant fries and veggie burgers in addition to the usual fare. Prices are perfectly reasonable.

Nice place to get a quick bite to take the edge off hunger. I have been there only in summer months when you can sit outside at really nice picnic tables. The breeze and the view is really nice. Food is a bit on the greasy side but nothing like some fast food restaurants. I have Celiac Disease and they... More

Stopped for a snack on the way to the Taconic. I had seen this shop/stand many times, but never realized it is more than ice cream. The staff are really sweet and friendly. Prices excellent...they even have a small hot dog which they grill for a dollar. A dollar...where can you get anything for a dollar anymore? All yum. Not... More
