The restaurant is called the Ice creamery, and it delivers. They also have a candy counter and a grill. The candy counter may even be better than the ice cream! The Grill has a thoughtful menu and the food is served hot and well prepared. So proud to have this restaurant in our community.

How can you not like Knudsens?! Wonderful burgers, good ice cream, chocolates, and patty melts. Yum. I'm giving them 5 stars even if they seated me where my waiter couldn't see me and didn't know that I was there until I asked for help. He was so great once he saw me. 5 stars.

Their sandwiches are okay and signature ice cream dishes are good. This is a great place for kids, and can be a terrible place if you want to carry on a conversation.

My wife and I enjoy going to this place for a burger or crab salad sandwich and of course some ice cream after! This place fills up and the noise level can be high, but seeing how much fun the families are having and how much the kids enjoy this place makes us come back again and again. The staff... More

My husband and I visit this restaurant often, since it is in easy walking distance from where we work. The food is good, the owners and wait staff are friendly and accommodating, and the menu has a good variety of burgers, sandwiches, salads, coffee drinks, Italian sodas, and, of course, ice cream! Their soups are also good, and they usually... More
