Nice place. Newly renovated and new menu. Had a chocolate shake and this one was the real deal. Fish sandwich was very good. Burgers and hotdogs great as well. Worth the trip.

Have had both food and ice cream here. Food is a decent value and is fairly good. Ice cream is a little overpriced but still good. Nice to have this spot in Ashford.
