Homemade ice cream in lots of flavors. No soft serve, the machine died. Everything you could imagine from shakes, sundaes, banana splits and hand dip. Beware they are EXPENSIVE! Wait staff are some sweet kids!

Yummy ice cream and waffle cones. Homemade ice cream was great. It was very busy and only one person waiting she was doing a good job but we felt sorry for her. She could not make waffle cones fast enough.
