We stopped in here for a quick lunch and found the place to be charming. The menu is pretty limited for food, just some burgers/sandwiches/salads along with various ice cream dishes. The décor is 1950s soda shop with some vintage pieces including cute table top...More

Well-kept 50's soda fountain & diner. Like going back in time. Including working jukebox. Friendly, laid back service. Good hamburger & great fish and chips. Fries are awesome. Great ice cream shakes. Relaxing. Slightly pricey. Pretty setting. Outdoor seating with view. Perfect for kids.
