Happened upon Nancy's while taking in the sun and sand. Service was slow, but what does one expect when they were sooo busy. The food was good, BUT we loved the sangria swirl sherbet. In fact, we went back of few weeks later for more sherbet. And we live in Indianapolis!

If fancy is what you're looking for, Nancy's isn't it. If you want great burgers, dogs, fries and world-class milkshakes, then stop at Nancy's. Burgers are 1/4 lb on grilled buns. Try the pizza burger with mozzarella and marinara. Dogs are beef on poppyseed buns. It can get crowded at lunch. Get there early. Our food took about 15 minutes,... More

Lots of flavors and great size. Been there thrice in 3 days. Simple and unpolished like an ice cream shop should be.

My kids love all the choices for ice cream here. They almost have too many to choose from but you can sample son if you like. The line can be long but what are you going to do in New Buffalo in the summer. We get some cones and sit and watch people and the cars. You can also take... More

had to wait in line for 10-15 minutes just to place order, should have left-but kids didn't want Subway. Then another 10 minutes for food. The Chicago dog was pitiful, little skinny hotdog is not a "Chicago dog". Chicken salad was nothing special and neither were the burgers or fries. First instinct was to leave when saw the wait-should have... More

We stopped in to this local joint for dessert and were rewarded with a tremendous choice of ice creams. The ones we tried were excellent and we had a great time sitting at one of the outside tables. We were there on a Wednesday and there was not crowd. Overall, it was a great experience in a place with character.
