A nice spot for lunch or a pizza, or to grab an ice cream dessert. Very consistent food, nothing fantastic, but very good Italian American fare. Great sundaes & countless delicious fountain drinks. Very good service - never a complaint.

Good place for lunch or a snack, a little expensive. The place was clean and right on the main drag, many other shops on the block. Service was good.

My wife an I stopped by here on our way home from the beach this weekend and I guess it will be our last time.

Let me first say we have been here a couple of times when they first opened and we loved it, nice looking shop with good food and great atmosphere. The sandwiches were simple, tasty and good prices.

When we went this weekend it had changed.

The shop is still nicely decorated like a 50's soda shop, the staff is friendly, but the prices have changed.

I got a Chicken Salad sandwich with chips for $11.00!

I could not believe how much they charged. I made the mistake of not looking at the menu because I was craving some chicken salad and had it before here and it was good, but not $11.00 good.

For $6 bucks you can run down to Publix and get a chicken salad sub. You would also get more, and get a huge bag of Lays if you want for less.
