I am on a bowling league in Castro Valley and usually 8 of us go for lunch at the ice creamery once a month. Great variety of foods and so far they have all been good.

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.
