“Good food. Fun pottery to decorate.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2011

Fun for a day off with the kids. Kid-friendly, with good food they will eat, and then they can paint an item.

“Never been past the ice cream counter -- best place for ice cream in a long ways”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

They get their ice cream from South Mountain Creamery in Middletown Md. All natural, and very good. Chocolate insanity is very good, as are pineapple, and peach. That's as far as I've gotten on the menu.

They have a frequent buyer's card, which gets you a free cone once you buy nine or so. Great ice cream. Just down from the Chinese restaurant. Service is first rate. Hate to admit that it's better than Nutter's, but it is.

“Best place in Charles Town for a quick meal and/or dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2011

They have several salads that I really like, also some good, small pizzas.

Most of the servers are efficient and friendly. I have had only one negative experience with a "dairy maid". Tonight I went in for a hot fudge sundae. My ice cream selection was mint chip (which they say is one of their most popular, and I can believe it, I love it). The server on duty was the ONLY one who never smiles and is somewhat curt. I asked for a hot fudge sundae with..., and I pointed at the green ice cream with black chips and said, "mint chip." Then she came back with her scoop and asked, "Did you say mint chip?" I said yes. So I retired to a table with my sundae and discovered that the chocolate chips were actually bits of oreo cookie. She should have warned me that the mint chip had been replaced with a new ice cream called "Grasshopper", then I would have selected my second-favorite, chocolate peanut butter.

Another slight negative is the atmosphere, only because it is unpredictable. It depends on the customers you are sharing the dining area with. Because it's an informal atmosphere, a small minority of the customers think it's fine to be rudely loud and try to engage you in conversation when you are trying to enjoy your meal in peace. (Just two bad experiences in all the time they've been open.)

I didn't mean to sound so negative, it's really a great eating place!
