My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time and it is BY FAR THE BEST fried chicken we have ever had! We both ordered the 3 piece dinner with mashed potatoes with chicken gravy. He had baked beans for his 2nd side and I had mac salad. Both were good. We enjoyed the meal so much we... More

Visited on one of the last days of the season. Got my chicken fix that will have to hold me over until spring. Chicken was delicious as usual.

We loved our ice cream-we both went with season options. I had the pumpkin ice cream in a milkshake (heavenly) and he had apple crisp (tasted as good as the real thing). Service was prompt and polite and the environment was great-loved all the old Coke memorabilia. There is also a drive through if you're in a rush.

Friendly staff and good ice cream. There are actually two sides to the business- the ice cream in front and the fried chicken in the back. We did not have time to try the chicken unfortunately. The prices are very reasonable. The entire place is like a step back in time to the fifties, quaint and family friendly.

Love this place! Just visited for third time this week. Pumpkin Pie ice cream to die for! Homemade ice cream, large selection of flavors. Outside tables/pavilion. Attached small restaurant has great fast food. Great family place. Closes for season at end of October.

Came for the chicken which did not disappoint. Also enjoyed the onion rings, fries and mac 'n' cheese. Good food and good prices. Sadly didn't get to try the ice cream although it looked great!

Grape and Pumpkin flavors were on the fall ice cream menu at this local ice cream stand. They also have a restaurant out back serving fried chicken and other lunch type menu items. Check it out if you can.

We bought a pint of their amazing homemade ice cream and tried a couple others. The one we got was something super chocolaty (I don't remember which one) and we got some of their fried chicken to go which was so good. I would definitely stop there if you are in the area. The lines are long for the ice... More
