We were headed out of town and saw this neat ice cream stand along the road and stopped. It's a drive in with walk up service too and is very nostalgic. Great ice cream and service!

When I reviewed this drive-in before, I gave it 5 stars. It is still a favorite, but it has slipped a bit in quality. The crab cakes are terrific with soft buns that don't hold up well to the fixings. I no longer eat the...More

That's what my 10 year old says. Fun setting and delicious drive-in food and scrumptious soft serve, this is a must visit spot in York County!

The lines may be long, but the wait is well worth it. Awesome burgers and desserts. I don't think there's a bad thing on the menu. I'm far from a local, but it's worth a drive once in a while.

Decided to stop by after the Manchester Carnival.. There was a little bit of a wait in line. I really like their banana splits. They have plenty of picnic tables to sit at.. Next visit I will have to try some of their food.

Drive up style dining in your car. The Tropical Treat burger is my favorite along with fries and some kind of ice cream dessert. They have burgers, subs, pizza, fries, onion rings, ice cream, shakes , Sunday's, sherbet , sodas !! Fun and different dining!

Food is good and reasonably priced -burgers, dogs, chicken, steak sandwiches, ice cream, you name it. Neat little drive inn! Expect to wait for your food- possibly up to 1.5 hours for a few burgers! A bit ridiculous when other similar establishments around the state...More

Once all the old timers die off the newbies will not stand for paying 4 bucks for an ice cream cone.

My husband and I order to-go Friday nights after our kids are in bed (shh! Hehe). One night after I picked up the food, a girl called and said she didn't give me all my change. I think it was about $8. She said I...More
