Fun atmosphere, great food, amazing desserts and drinks!!! I’ve been three times now. Great for friends, family, or date night. :)

It is always tough to make a selection, and I'm never disappointed. The only down side is the lack of space to wait for a table if the weather outside is frightful. Don't let that dissuade you, because you'll love whatever you order.

I went to The Fountain for lunch after a morning concert. It was crowded with other concert goers, students from a nearby university and other assorted folks. We had to wait a bit but the wait was worth it. It was a chilly day and...More

This is a treat of a restaurant, with a retro building that retains the splash of our grand past. The menu is similarly delightful, featuring daily homemade soups that are to die for, each one different daily. There are also sandwiches, wonderful salads, desserts to...More

Great food, great service, great atmosphere, and great prices. Tim was our waiter and was superb. Had the Cuban with a bowl of chicken and dumplins. They were amazing. Also got the Dark and Sinister ice cream and highly recommend it!

Excellent little place with outstanding ice cream and lunch and drinks...what more could you need? Even if you don't need a huge ice cream, they serve a darling tiny hot fudge sundae that is just perfect for a post meal sweet!

I apologize for answering your question so late. I just noticed it. I believe that the restaurant is handicap accessible. I am not sure the rest room is handicap accessible. I hope this helps.
