This place no longer exists. It is now for sale along with the theater which is a real shame. It will be missed

Haha! A great experience. Enjoy the ice cream and enjoy the show! Always a good time! The wait staff usually always work for the local theater so they are really talented. It is a fun time, especially for the people who enjoy the theatre.

We love the singing and we love the ice cream. Hope they can save this wonderful tradition on LBI. We have gone for years with our grandchildren - so many beautiful memories.

I have never sat down inside and taken in a show, but the walk up window in the back gives you a peak at the excitement that goes on inside. One of the only places I can still get Banana Ice Cream!

Worth the visit especially when attending Surflight theatre. An interesting experience. Open irregular hours. Tough to find parking. But, don't come expecting to order a meal.
