Right off hand I would say is this is the same place as the Gem Theatre Diner..and it is SMALL inside. It is the cutest place though and the food was fantastic. The waitress was one of two people working and she was running. The other person was working the ice cream counter. It was very busy..but she was very... More

This is one of the oddest places I've eaten. Is it an ice cream shop? Is is a movie theater? Is is a restaurant? Is it a 50's themed soda shop? The answer is yes to all. You really feel like you are back in time complete with the black and white checkered floors, laminated 50's style red laminated tables... More

It's Sunday and not much is open in Panguitch. You'd think that would be an opportunity for a business to shine and capitalize on being one of the only places in town to eat. Not so much. (Panguitch is 30 minutes from Bryce Canyon National Park and on the way to Lake Powell.). Walked in around 130pm. We were the... More

We stopped in for ice cream. The old-fashioned decor was charming. The owner was ill, so a friend was covering for him. Service was friendly. Serving size was small. The ice cream is homemade and was delicious.

Charming property. We stopped by for breakfast on a whim. Never had breakfast at an ice cream shop/movie theatre before but the food was excellent. Would stop by there again when I am in town.

We ate here twice during our stay in Panguitch. It was just good food and enough choices. The free scoop of icecream after dinner was a very nice touch.

Small, retro restaurant. Service a little slow at times. Many breakfast selections and food very good. Had ice cream another night, which was excellent, met owner and chef very friendly.

Stayed overnight in the little town of Panquitch on our way from Bryce to Salt Lake City. The owner of the motel we stayed in (Church's Blue Pine) pointed out the small eatery right across the road when we asked her about a nice place for dinner. Loved our dinner (of many varieties), the friendly service, nice atmosphere and free... More

We ate Breakfast and Dinner + Ice cream. The food was great and the portions are quite satisfying. The homemade ice cream is definitely worth trying, but our favourite meal were the burgers!

Our party ordered 3 different meals. We were not expecting too much....what a surprise! All were delicious. The portions were generous, the quality outstanding. And if the meal wasn't enough...they have homemade ice cream.i consider myself a "ice cream snob" truly the best I have tried. I hope I can eat there again.
