We loved it her, the food was lovely and great friendly service. Nice little waiting area to sit and great space outside to sit in the sun if you wanted to. The ice cream floats were amazing too. Thank you.

They've got all the basics for a local burger/ice cream joint. Normally you would order and eat outside, but even on a warm winter day, we were able to order and wait inside, then eat on the picnic tables outside.
