“Family Owned, Tasty Treats, Fifty's Style”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The staff is friendly and helpful. The ice cream is delicious. There is a nice selection of regular ice cream, and a very large selection of soft ice cream. So many different kinds of cones and toppings. Eating there is a pleasure. It's spacious, clean and will transport you back in time. The benches and seats are comfortable, and there are picnic tables outside. They even have open air movies in the summer. Small businesses need to be supported by the surrounding community, and this one is definitely worth your patronage.

“Great place to treat your kids or sports team to ice cream”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

They are trying to recreate a 50's style ice cream parlor. I did not live then, but the decor looks the part - I like the high stools. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Ice cream is good. Not cheap, but quality comes at a price. A fun place.

“Good for ice cream, family movies and birthday parties”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Always nice service. The ice cream is always good. Not spectacular, but good. The atmosphere is very cute. 50s style parlor (although the party room is pretty sparcely decorated). Parties are good for two year olds to eight year olds. After that, they might be a bit bored. The party helpers are young, but fun and patient and competent. Parties are very flexible and you can bring things or have them do it. During the summer, they have family movie nights which are relaxing and a good time.
