Great summer fun.!! Play some miniature golf, arcade games, have some ice cream. In the summer, they have outdoor concerts in the evening. It's a one stop place to have outdoor fun at any age.

Zem's has great ice cream, but the mini golf is just meh...The course is old, not interesting, and needs lots of improvements. They do have a park-like area with picnic tables.

We are regulars at ZEM's :) Always fast, friendly service and we never leave disappointed. Over the weekend, we even had my dad and his wife come to watch the band and see the car show. And, who could forget the ice cream? They truly enjoyed themselves, as did we.

Had a great cone at Zems. This is really a jewel in the little town of Canastota. They have tons of flavors in both hard and soft serve ice cream. They also have lots of creations you can try. Prices are reasonable. I never played golf but the course looks fun.

A local owned and operated ice cream place that offers a small miniature golf course for the whole family to enjoy. I visit often during the summer months.

My family loves Zems We are lucky enough to live within walking distance (although not so lucky if you're trying to lose weight), and we go to Zems many times during the summer. The ice cream is so creamy & delicious, the workers are all friendly, and facilities are clean. The prices are reasonable. It's just a great place and... More
