Very good diner food, with a daily special and great service. Ice Cream is to die for and from the cones to the gigantic sundaes all is reasonably priced. Free sundaes for the kids on Mondays and just a good time. Hot Fudge and Carmel...More

Usually busy with families and groups of friends but accommodates lots of people. A local favorite after school or sporting events. Ice cream is Fenton' s style, but food menu available also.

Knudsen's is solid. Nine times out of 10, you're going to get exactly what you ordered. I like their big burgers (medium rare, thank you) I like their mini shakes (with their toffee ice cream): Yum! My friend sometimes complain about the noise level. But...More

They serve great food and excellent ice cream. I love their different soups and their special sundaes that go along with the nearest holiday or season. Beats the heck out of the chain places, and the staff is always friendly and attentive.
