We stopped in for blizzards late in the evening. Both young ladies that we dealt with were extremely friendly. Service was super quick. The blizzards were amazing, packed with the candy add ins, they didn't skimp a bit. Perfect ending to a fun filled day!

Nice place, very friendly staff, food is good and the place is clean. They made a mistake on my order and I said it was fine, but they went ahead and redid the order just to make sure I was satisfied.

This is your typical Chill and Grill. The staff is very friendly and do a great job with your food and ice cream. We went back several times during our trip for a nice cool ice cream after a hot day out and about.
