Great milkshakes. Food is really good. Prices are only drawback. We have eaten here for many years and the atmosphere is wonderful. Bring your dog for a doggie cup of ice cream.

This place is right on our frequently traveled route, so Mimi has seen our daughter grow up! It's got the best pizza I've had since leaving new England and I've tried many. Service is friendly and the food and ice cream are great!

The food is great, but expensive for a greasy spoon drive through. Corndog, 2 burgers, shake, and onionrings=$21

The pizza was delicious! The crust is great. Sat outside in patio area and had dessert after. For dessert my husband and I shared a banana split and a pineapple sundae, because we could not make up our minds, both where amazing! Highly recommend.
