Enjoyed a delicious iced coffee on a hot summer afternoon. I hope to return for lunch in near future.

I had a delicious chicken cheesesteak with a side salad. The raspberry vinaigrette was very tasty. The service was just ok, but the people were friendly. The decor is so wonderful. BUT THE ICE CREAM WAS AMAZING!! I had two scoops of mint chocolate chip...More

Have to do this place at least once when you are in the Grove; best though on a weekend off season before Memorial Day & after Labor Day. Summer lines can get intense. Food is as if your Mom made it! And don't get me...More

Great ice cream cones, milk shakes (made the old-fashioned way) and sundaes. On a sunny day, enjoy your treats at an outside table. Oh, and lets not forget that this place also serves up an excellent burger!

We go there for lunch and sometimes dinner. Food is great and there is outside dining. I prefer the outside...less noisy.

Still operating from about 100 years ago when it used to be a drug store. Homemade ice cream. Every flavor simply the best. Take some time (as you want to do in Icean Grove) and enjoy the 1890's.

If you are willing to wait on the lines the soft serve ice cream is very good. My husband enjoyed his sundae as well. It is a bustling place both day and night.

They had a fair amount of salads. The menu is huge and they were happy to modify stuff for me. Fruit cup was huge - fruit bowl it should be called. Just ask detailed questions. I'm also allergic to oregano and they served it... More
