This is a really good place for an Ice Cream Cone. It is a fun setting with a nice view of the lake. It is fun to feed the ducks.

There really isn't much to say about a place that serves ice cream and fast food other than the fact that I've never gotten sick eating there. It's strictly standard fare. If you're there on a warm day, it's nice to sit out back on...More
