Knudsen's is solid. Nine times out of 10, you're going to get exactly what you ordered. I like their big burgers (medium rare, thank you) I like their mini shakes (with their toffee ice cream): Yum! My friend sometimes complain about the noise level. But I really like it. I like that families and kids are having a good time... More

They serve great food and excellent ice cream. I love their different soups and their special sundaes that go along with the nearest holiday or season. Beats the heck out of the chain places, and the staff is always friendly and attentive.

This place makes great sandwiches. The ice cream sundaes are generous and delightful. There's also a superb selection of candy. Prices are reasonable.

Ice cream is always wonderful. A bit noisy due to birthday parties going on all the time. Great for families and kids.

I am on a bowling league in Castro Valley and usually 8 of us go for lunch at the ice creamery once a month. Great variety of foods and so far they have all been good. I usually get the 1/2 sandwich and soup. Good service. They always give us separate checks with the senior discount. Can be a bit... More

The restaurant is called the Ice creamery, and it delivers. They also have a candy counter and a grill. The candy counter may even be better than the ice cream! The Grill has a thoughtful menu and the food is served hot and well prepared. So proud to have this restaurant in our community.

How can you not like Knudsens?! Wonderful burgers, good ice cream, chocolates, and patty melts. Yum. I'm giving them 5 stars even if they seated me where my waiter couldn't see me and didn't know that I was there until I asked for help. He was so great once he saw me. 5 stars.
