Reviewed December 19, 2012

This little food restaurant has been here since the 1920's. it is also rated/ viewed as the best Ice cream parlor in Long Island! If I had to say I would bring your kids here they have treats and kiddy snacks for them. They also have shakes and molts which are the best!!!

“Slide back into the 50's (~except for the prices~but so worth it!)”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have always loved Krisch's. It's a throwback to Happy Days and Grease- with its decor and waitstaff uniforms and fountain stools. Since it is always crowded, patience is a virtue.The food is really good here~ burger, wraps and daily specials... but give me their ice cream- of which I have often made a meal of~ especially their waffle sundaes!!! Freshly made belgium waffles with two scoops of their homemade ice cream (my favorites being peach and rocky road), and omg that heavy homemade whipped cream!!! Literally to die for and go to the next jean size for. Their ice cream menu is huge and the flavors and combinations are all delicious and massive. Yes, the ice cream is pricey but its a delightful treat that is very much worth it! Skip dinner and go for it!

“Great neighborhood restaurant.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I went here with a Groupon coupon and are now avid fans! Always crowded, because of the delicious abundant food and great service. The burgers are massive and all fresh made, no frozen food here. The french fries are hand cut as well and delicious.
We'll be back again and again!

“Old fashion ice cream shop, Lots of young help”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Although this place has a lot of food options with sandwiches, soups, etc., we chose to check out this old fashion ice cream place. My daughter loved her large portion sundae as well as my mom. I would go back, but the young staff was not very attentive. Place seemed too busy, and there were no adult supervisors in sight. Very family oriented. Cheap eats.
