We got our car in line for the ferry to Coupeville and we had about an hour wait so we thought we would grab a quick dinner. So we walked a couple blocks down the main street and came to the Nifty Fifty Soda Fountain....More

Food was good, but ice cream was really good...and shakes were just like old times! Fifties theme makes for a comfortable environment. Only negative was the lemonade -- don't order it...tasted like powdered drink mix, only weaker.

Service was attentive and fun and the milk shakes we had here were well made. Functional operating jukebox and vinyl decor adds to 50s atmosphere.

This place reminds me of the diners I ate in as a kid. Old jukebox, table music players, counter stools from old diners (they've been refurbished), old restore soda machines, etc. A real treat and a must go to.

Great place for ice cream treats , original milk shakes and ice cream sodas. The burger and the fries were not cheap and not really that great for taste. Stick to the ice cream.

It was what I needed just then: java and ice-cream! The coffee was divine, and so was the milkshake. In our group everybody was happy with their selection. We sat outside in the sunshine, enjoyed the view, and the happiness all around in the park...More
