This is a fun place for a look at nostalgia while having an ice cream cone or a burger. The burger was acceptable, but we expected more flavor from one advertised as hand-pattied. The fries really need work -- yuck. The onion rings were pretty good. Service is friendly; the people working there are wonderful, so I wanted to give higher marks, but the food was just average. Still, it's fun to go in and look at all the collectibles and remarkable arcade games of yesteryear.

Cute little ice cream shop with very friendly staff and always clean. We always make this a stop on our trip everytime. Sometimes biking, walking or driving. Ample parking for most vehicles, could be tight if you are hauling a boat or sporting equipment-usually the lot next door available.

A must for everyone. Amazing food, atmosphere and service. The place has a very retro vibe and fresh made to order food. I recommend the delight burger and a chocolate malt shake! My 5 year old son loved his cheeseburger and onion rings with a strawberry shake. Love this friendly family owned establishment. Well done

Don't miss the fresh-made orangeade! This is a cute place with good food & those wonderful fresh-squeezed orange & lemonades. Nice beach atmosphere--well worth a visit!

We enjoyed ice cream and milkshakes here. All of it was delicious and served with a smile. Very friendly staff, fun decor and great experience. We will be back!
