    If you want a really filling, damned good and old fashioned ice cream sundae or shake, then this is the place to go! And get a coffee to compliment it!

    You feel like you're stepping back in time, but the high prices aren't worth the average quality.

    Get a milkshake extra luscious (glass is lined with chocolate, caramel, or marshmallow sauce). You can get any ice cream flavor as a shake, not just the ones listed on the menu. Or get a sundae.

    Great food. Just don't stand out apparently the old people still think it's the 50's. Got to love closet racism.

    Patty Melt was yummy... & there is an arcade in the back where the little kiddies can burn off all the sugar they had :)

    Don't go here if you are on a diet because the ice cream is too good not to get! BIG scoops and plenty of hot fudge and whip!

    Super crowded on Saturday nights, but If you don't mind bumping elbows, the ice cream is tasty. Though if you're looking to grab a cone and get out, it may take a whole for you to get noticed

    I don't know what the hype is! It's a very old ice cream store. It is Super pink inside. It has an old Game room where most of the games were out of order. The ice cream was average.

    Smooth and super chocolatey, the chocolate shake at Sugar Bowl is not much of a departure from your usual chocolate shake, but it's tasty and the presentation is on point. Read more

    Their sundaes are definitely the highlight, but don't sleep on the milkshakes - not too long ago I had probably the best chocolate milkshake in my life. Not uncommon to see celebs either!

    I have gone to Sugar Bowl for over 35 years, and sadly, I have to say, it's not the same Sugar Bowl anymore. I ordered a burger med rare that was beyond dry. Attitude was "Sorry." Not going back.
