The ice cream was very good. The cones were fresh and crispy. The choices were an interesting group of special flavors. Strawberry shortcake was good as well as the Lemon meringue.

Went with friends, food was delivered quickly. However, the prices are very high especially considering the extremely small portions provided. Really a waste of money. Will definitely NOT go back.

We dock our pontoon at Tally's, so C.G. Hooks is very convenient for eating on our boat. We have eaten there many times and always enjoyed it. They give boat side service as well as eat in and patio dining. Good local restaurant and very...More
