we stopped by here because Frank and Mike of the American Pickers show eat here. The food was tasty and you got big portions. I had the tenderloin sandwich and it ws more than I could eat.

I was visiting the area with friends and we decided to try this place out on a whim. I had the double big cheeseburger and it was delicious! My friend had the steak wrap and she loved it. The server was so nice and we met a couple from Jupiter FL who was traveling around the country. We had a... More

We stopped here for ice cream and were very impressed with the selection and uniqueness of selections. We ate outside and had a nice view of the river. A great find for an out of towner!

If you are hungry and have a dog this is the place to go. The eateries in the main historic district don't allow dogs even in their outdoor dining areas, unless you thread the dog's leash through to the sidewalk where Fido watch you eat through the fence. No thank you. Big Dave and Holly have a large outdoor grassy... More

Our motel staff recommended this establishment, and we were certainly not disappointed. First of all, the building and the dining area are both very small, with seating inside for only 15-20 patrons. However, there are picnic tables and benches outside when weather permits. While we were dining inside, we noticed many coming in for take-out orders. The 4 of us... More

Stopped by for dinner. Ribs were the special - very delicious and fell off the bone. Cole slaw was home made and tasty. Baked beans were excellent. Very satisfying and filling. A favorite stop for the Antique Archeology boys when they are in town. Great food at reasonable price. Holly was a gracious host.

Very small "ice cream stand" with full menu. Seating is limited. Good burgers and cones. Right across from Mississippi River. We have seen barge tow boats stop for lunch!

We ordered malts on a HOT day and they were delicious! Highly recommend! The food the other diners were eating looked great, but we were all about the ice cream!

We recently had lunch and dinner here. It is a charming little diner that evokes memories of the good old days. I highly recommend the breaded tenderloin and my wife had a Holly's club sandwich. With fries and some fantastic cucumber salad our tab was UNDER $15 !!! This will become a "must stop whenever we ar up that way.
