Do NOT underestimate the value of homemade whipped cream on rainbow cookie ice cream with hot fudge... exhilarating! Quaint ice cream parlor true to its inception in the 50's, this hidden gem off the main roads is nestled between shops and residential homes in the All American town of Massapequa. Huge ice cream portions are a must after eating my... More

Physically, it is a throwback to my childhood. Actually,the place was established in 1920. I ordered one scoop of Butter Pecan with Hot Fudge topping. I consider myself a "maven" when it comes to Ice Cream and Toppings. This was the best! My friends were just as pleased.

Great place for a quick bite to eat. All food is delicious and the ice cream is to die for. The one scoop serving is huge!!! Everything about this place is awesome and we love taking our kids and nieces and nephews there.

Haven't been here in years due to the quality we experienced in the past. Was very happy this time. The cheeseburgers tasted fresh and were big. The service was great, very attentive. The ice cream was phenomenal. On the pricier side but worth it. Great for families.

Great menu for breakfast/brunch/lunch, good service, a bit crowded mid-day, but the wait is worth it. Get there when you're in need of a burger and... More

I've been going to Krisch's since I was young & it's always been a pleasant experience. The wraps are decent & the ice cream & homemade sweets are always a delight. I recommend the brownie sundae & vanilla egg cream! The egg creams are one of the best I've had. I even purchased a staff shirt that's how big of... More
