Good time for all always! Food is always as expected and that's a good thing, no surprises. Ice cream is always much better here for some reason, probably the way it's made. Not that all air and fluff ice cream; it's dense, creamy and full of flavor. Service is always good. The place is always clean and fun for all.... More

Visited Holstens as part of the Sopranos Tour. Was amazing to visit this famous restaurant and taste those famous onion rings! We only had 20 mins so we had a sandwich and an ice cream and bought some handmade chocolates before heading back on the tour. Great for any Sopranos fan

Holsten's has an air of cool about it...that puts you right into the last ever episode of the Sopranos. Tony and his family were having dinner here in the last scene. I experienced again the anxiety I felt for them as tension was building and we were meant to expect an assassination attempt or the like and it was really... More

Delicious ice cream, sundaes, desserts, burgers etc., not so good. Very good hand made chocolates and large variety of other candies, including candy cigarettes that I have not seen in years. Love sitting up to the counter with my grandchildren for ice cream sundaes, etc.,

If you like good old fashioned homemade ice cream then one of the best in North Jersey is Hosten's without a doubt. A great range of flavors and they pack you a pint or a quart with you watching. Surprise, they sell food too. Hamburgers are good and get an order of cheese fries. Their grilled cheese and tomato to... More

Great place to go for a milk shake and a burger. Finish it off when you are paying the check with some candy from the counter.

We take our grandchildren to Holsten's and my husband, our twin grandchildren and I always enjoyed their ice cream, small dishes of ice cream for our grandchildren, ice cream soda for me and at times, my husband have one of their many types of hamburgers. Holsten's is a fun place to visit and the wait staff are generally attentive.

Holsten's is a fun place to go, be it delicious ice cream treats, home-made candy, or tasty grill food. The kids who work there are all nice [& hard-working], and the customers are almost always in a good mood.

The hamburgers could be bigger but they are delicious. The meat is bought from Mastriano's butcher located across the street from Holsten's. Their chocolate ice cream is the BEST I have ever had.

This place is so yummy. It is like stepping back in time when ice cream was made the old fashioned way. They also serve food and have a candy counter. We sat at the counter and loved every second. The whipped cream does not come out of a can it is amazing and so creamy. If I am ever back... More
