“Overrated”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Compared to hot dog/coney places in other areas of the country I think it is overrated.

“Fun to visit - but there are better Coneys in the Fort!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Coney Island is a fun place to go when you want to have the experience...sitting at the counter, having a bottle of coke, Seyferts chips and a coney. It is the atmosphere and experience that make this fun - not the coneys. They are decent, but try some of the other coney places in town and you will see that there are far better in Fort Wayne.

“Our family has been coming here since the 1920's”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We love the Coney Dogs, the atmosphere. It's the same tables and chairs that they had when my Dad was a kid! It's a neat place, and Coke tastes better in 8oz. glass bottles!

“"Our buns are steamed" - Don't miss a visit if you are near downtown Fort Wayne.”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

"Our buns are steamed." Established in 1914 and still very much like it began. The only reasuarant I know that lets you enter via the kitchen - and you still want to eat there! Very eclectic mix of customers. Don't mis it!
