We really enjoyed our visit to nifty fifty. Their burgers were great and so were their shakes. Oh and the onion rings-perfection. I wouldn't recommend their fried ice cream personally but overall it was a great experience. We would definitely go again.

Wonderful patio to enjoy your ice cream watching the ferry and other boats go by. Good ice cream, and the food is decent. Not too pricey.

Every summer, my family stays in the marina and we walk to get ice cream here! It's a treat to come and we are always pleased with the staff, menu, and especially the ICE CREAM. This year, I had a lemon soda (with ice cream) and it was delicious way to cool off. The view is wonderful as well.

During our walk we went into the Soda Fountain. What a treat! Not only did they have my favorite black licorice ice cream we had the best malt and chocolate soda ever! The staff are friendly and went out of their way to make the visit fun. Excellent soda fountain treats!

We always get lunch here, for the great 50's decor and yummy ice cream. Excellent service as usual. I had a BLT with fries and a chocolate shake. Great 50's music on the jukebox.

This is conveniently located on Water Street and is an inviting blast from the past. It is a typical soda fountain from the fifties era.
