We stopped by for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. This is obviously a popular place to eat and we were lucky to get a table. The "Grownup Grilled Cheese" sandwich was delicious.

“Nice!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Always a good back up place. Dinner menu is same as lunch so you just get sandwiches. Service is usually slow but food is worth the wait. Servers wear very short shorts which is offputting and not attractive but they are friendly. Never had a bad meal expect for the last time. Soup is usually excellent but the pumpkin was too thick and just OKAY. mac salad was dried out. For the most part, it's very good.

“Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlor - good for lunch too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

My wife and I had lunch here when we went to Schroon Lake, which is 18 miles to the north. The service is very good. I had turkey on rye which was served with fresh fruit and vegetables. My wife had Sue's plate which came with an abundance of fruit and vegetables, but a limited amount of tuna. She had ice cream for dessert. They also sell pies, candy, and greeting cards here. The place was very busy on a summer Saturday afternoon as it looked like many people met for lunch there.

“More than just ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

I have heard from many in the north country of New York State that the Main Street Ice Cream Parlor is the place to eat when you're in the Chestertown/Warrensburg area. I had to try it and I was very pleased with the experience. Sandwiches, salads and handmade milkshakes are very good. Add a nice view, interesting decor reminiscent of an old-style parlor and you have a combination that brings charm to any meal there. When I (definitely) return I will try their soup since they sounded so good.

Sandwiches are good, a little pricey. Service is usually slow esp by the younger one's. Owner is said to be hard to work for.
