After a restful night's sleep at the Lake Pleasant Lodge, we stopped for breakfast at the King of the Frosties. We arrived just before the proverbial bus unloaded. Shortly after we ordered we glanced around to see a line at the door waiting to gain...More

We stopped for lunch while riding through on our motorcycle. They serve breakfast until about 11:30. I had a BLT and husband a turkey club. Sandwiches and burgers come with chips. Both were very good with plenty of meat/bacon. Menu offers salad, soups and numerous...More

Does a booming business in the summer season, especially breakfast and lunch. Specials are especially good, Swedish pancakes on Sunday morning, for example, and you won't go wrong ordering them. The place has been here forever and is a fixture in Speculator with good reason....More

King of the Frosties has been here FOREVER! I used to dine there in the 1970s, and not much has changed since then. They probably have the same menu as well. The food is cheap, and the help knows all the local people. For dinner,...More

Tasty breakfasts for a great price. The owners are friendly & service is fast. Hits the spot on a cold winter morning.

Not the place if you want to eat healthy lunch. Haven't tried breakfast but lunch menu has mostly fried food choices or greasy hamburgers. Very good crispy french fries though and good soft serve and hard ice cream.

OK, the place looks like you landed in 1953 - and in a way you have! It goes back to a time when it was about good food at good prices. We stop in here each time we come up to Lake Pleasant. They can...More

My husband and I ride motorcycles all around our area and constantly find new restaurants to love. Such is our relationship with this one. Family-owned and run, the customers are made to feel like family as well. The food is very plentiful and good, and...More
