My grandchildren LOVE Gumdrops & Lollipops Restaurant, a MUST stop when they visit with us. Their preference is with good reason: large assortment of candy to include home made fudge, delicious food, and location - just a short walk under the railroad bridge to Niantic Boardwalk and Beach. For our most reasent visit, September, 2018, adults and kids enjoyed Fish and Chips ($14.95), French Fries ($3.99), Onion Rings ($5.29), and Grilled Cheese ($4.99). My wife and I have been consistently pleased with the food and service and especially for the kindness extended to children. Highly recommended.

The store is very cute and set up well with a store in the front and an ice cream "parlor" in the back. I bought a small twist cone for 3.95. It was very good but typical. I didn't try any of their specialty items so not sure if I missed out on something that they're known for or not. They had friendly service and if I had come with a group the outside seating would've been fun.

It’s like stepping back in time. The seating wasn’t comfortable but the food was yummy. It’s all about the sweet tooth! Candy galore! I’m looking forward to brining my niece, great niece and great nephew here although it will put a hurting on my wallet!

It's worth going to support a local business. I have never had food here and can really only speak to disappointment in the cost of the desserts.The ice cream is okay, but not worth the price. Even worse are the smoothies which cost $5.45 plus tax...unless you add whipped cream which brings to total to just under $6.50. Can't go very often at those prices!

I was under the impression that this was a restaurant, not a snack counter with 4 teenagers running the show. Very slow service and garbage food. Gave 2 stars for the candy area. Otherwise it’s a no for me.
