Don't get a large cone unless you want a quart of ice cream! Ice cream cones from Ruthies are a family tradition for us but I've never tried their food.

Ruthie's is just down the street from Shorts and frequently has a crowd around the building. The inside is quaint with a multitude of wind chines. The service was prompt and friendly. My wife ordered a pizza bagel and I ordered a butterfinger blizzard. The bagel was flavorful with lots of topping and cheese. The blizzard had lots of butterfinger in it. We would definitely eat there again.

Good ice cream just the wait is long on summer nights. The place is small and crowded and needs some cleaning.

Like an ice cream, shake, soft serve? They have it. But also fast food sandwiches and such. Can eat indoors (small) or outside (large). A go to on a hot day or if you just want a cone.

Excellent selection of ice cream specialities, Hudsonville ice cream or soft serve.The food choices are also tasty. The place is very busy which is a good sign! They cater to the little ones as well.
