wet for dinner. Food was just boring, barely worth the money. Even he ice cream, which they are famous for, was not very good, not much taste to it, and not very creamy- average. Serice was OK, and nothing more.

Food was ok. Service was good. Restaurant entrance had a bit of a funky smell. Overall good. Wouldn't go again though unless it's last resort.

We had been at a cookout most of the day. So we really were not looking for a small dinner, but rather a snack of some sort. Ice Cream always hits the spot. This place is within walking distance of our hotel. Literally, cross the...More
