Good place to eat. The ice cream is very good and has a cute atmosphere. It is a summer time favorite for us.

This is the best burger place around! My husband and I stop on our way to the lake almost every single weekend for their flavor of the week and macho meal. Management are really friendly too.

After seeing this restaurant on PBS Savor Indiana, we stopped by on Saturday, had a porkburger and polish sausage, both ok, then had a delicious blueberry shake for the road. Friendly waitress, large menu, and old time atmosphere!

Good fast food and ice cream. A great seasonal place to eat! The kids love the hand dipped ice cream. They also have a great variety from salads, burgers, chicken, and fish.

The Patio is an independent Fast Food style establishment. Indoor and outdoor, they have a huge menu with a lot of creativity. I have eaten here regularly for many years and would recommend it to anyone travelling through.

This is a good place to get a pork tenderloin and a fast food style burger and fries. They had a pretty good mixed salad as well.

Nice little place to eat indoors or out. Have lots of sandwich selections and of course great ice cream! Don't miss their pizza burger sandwich--makes a great meal with curly fries and cheese and a vanilla sweet tea. Their drumsticks and ice cream sandwiches are...More
