Went here for ice cream while home visiting family. Love these kinds of places! The ice cream was delicious! Would go back every day to try all the flavors if my waistline could afford it.

Three adults shared the Super Titanic Fishermans Platter. Plenty of food, even took some home. A great buy if you like a variety of fried food. Although with ice cream the trip was a little pricy, spent $60 between the three of us. Place could...More
