We go here every once in awhile for a special treat. The place is very small, a walk up where you buy the ice-cream and sit on the benches or eat in your car type of place. It is located on the corner of Route 50 and Lake Hill Rd. The staff is very polite, friendly, and attentive. There can... More

I know this place has lines for the ice cream but they have really good fish frys. So much so that they ran out the last time I went there and the lady in front of me got the last one.

The soft serve ice cream is one of the best in the area. It has a nice flavor to it. The only concern I have is how busy the place is and close to the road. It makes it hard when you have toddlers who don't sit still very well. But we still keep going back for the special treat.

The food is good, pretty good selection of ice cream though both food & ice cream seems a bit high priced. Wish it would stay open through September though.

I looked at the reviews for Mama's and saw many people complaining about poor service. I think this may be true only during peak hours. I drive by around 6PM and there are long lines for the food and on hot summer days there are long lines for the ice cream during the day. I tend to go there during... More

Over priced and not good quality soft serve ice cream, staff were old and cranky! They advertise Turkey Hill brand soft serve and it was not, it had barely no taste and was not creamy at all. I bought a kiddie cone and a small vanilla shake and it was $8.34, I was shocked. Woman waiting on me acted like... More

Had stopped hear for lunch many times in the past.They used to make a great cheeseburger.... Something has changed stopped several times this summer and the service was abysmal to non-existent. This is a seasonal ice cream and hot dog/hamburger spot. Multi-tasking...cooking, more than one order at a time seems to be a problem and just getting an order taken... More

Stopped in for a soft serve cone on a Saturday date night! My wife was delighted with the fact they had soft serve yogurt. We were happy that they were open to 11:00!

I have visited this place several times as it is right in my community. While the food and ice cream is adequate, the service is not good. They are VERY slow..and you would be hard pressed to get anyone to smile at you. We live in a very friendly community; "Mamas" gives a bad impression with their sour expression. We... More
