    Try out the cocktail ice cream libations. They are so good. It's OK to sit at the bar. Great place for people watching as grandparents take their 21-something grandkids for their 1st real-world drink.

    Everything is great here. I love to bring friends here when they visit from out of town. Sit in one of the private booths to listen to corny radio soap operas. The Peach Belini Float is wonderful.

    I am simply blown away by this place. It is the fanciest, most old school, beautiful ice cream parlour I have ever been to. I recommend going at night for a fun, romantic atmosphere.

    Ice cream, of course. Sundaes (big and mini) and milkshakes. Love the banana split. Also great lunch options, and boozy ice cream martinis.

    I love the French onion roast beef. I never had an alcoholic ice cream drink before. But I fell in love with the raspberry lemon drop.

    The ice cream, handmade sodas, and grilled cheese are all divine. Service was top notch! They even offered to go cups for our ice cream. The decor is a fun art deco. Highly recommend!

    One word...YUMMY! I've eaten here twice and it was delicious both times. If you are on a diet forget it for one meal! The Bearcat sundae was amazing and I tasted the adult grilled cheese...WOW!

    The sandwiches are great, atmosphere is fun, & service is attentive. The ice cream, however, is the show-stealer. If u don't have room 4 ice cream after ur meal, try the world's smallest sundae!

    Heather Dawn is the best server ever! Get the Zanzibar ice cream! Gluten free bread option , pretty sure it's Rudis brand so I recommend getting it toasted or it falls apart.

    Save room for dessert! The ice cream is wonderful. Yes, they have fancy concoctions, but don't pass up a simple scoop of ice cream. I love the Zanzibar Chocolate with banana slices on top.

    Throw back a "Magnum Opus," a warm, alcoholic coffee drink infused with enough of the good stuff to melt away all the snow and ice coming our way.

    They call it Fountain on Locust because they serve soda here. Soda comes from fountains. That’s why it’s called Fountain on Locust. I am having a beer though. Beer does not come from a fountain.

    Great ice cream and home-made caramel. Gluten-free menu, which is great. However - Beware the grilled chicken breast - very processed and fatty. Would not recommend.
