“Came all the way from Sarasota, Fl for a fish fry!”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Whenever my husband and I are going to be in our hometown area of Saratoga, we have to stop here for our fish fry! We can't get the same great chili sauce in Florida so we always put extra on to make it last!
Love sitting outside on the picnic tables, brings back great memories for us. Please don't ever change a good thing!

“Best soft ice cream anywhere around”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

You don't go here for the food. You got for the ice cream. Their ice cream sodas are made the old-fashioned way, and then lots of soft ice cream on top. Absolutely tops. Ice cream cones are excellent every time I go. I've never gone away disappointed. Love it.

“It's like an annual pilgrimage for us!”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

For the past 20+ years, we've gone here for soft ice cream and always enjoyed both the ice cream and the good value because of the portions served. At least once every year we have to have a sausage sandwich with "everything" and an order of onion rings. Sometimes we'll stop just for the onion rings because they are soooo good.

The lines of people can be very long at certain times of the day, and parking can be difficult. But it's worth a visit.

“The Ice Cream Rules; Food is Tasty but Greasy”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

This place is a family tradition for us. Don't plan on concerning yourself with cholesterol and fat for a night and come on a pleasant evening. It can be sublime!
