My grandparents live right up the road on Pinecroft ave. and we used to walk down to this place all the time. It is a bit on the expensive side so we don't go as often anymore but it is definitely a great place to meet up with family and friends.

I love Pinecroft. Their food is old fashioned, their ice cream is really great, inside it's like a quite 60's diner - dark paneling with old soda fountain accessories that are in regular use. It's like Friendly's used to be. The have several walk up windows for ice cream and an interesting yard to enjoy your cone or sundae in.... More

We arrived at 11:30 on a Sunday, not aware of the noon opening time. As we turned to leave, a worker came to the door to let us in, letting us know that everything was ready for the day. Thus began a very pleasant visit to Pinecroft, a longtime spot that has gone through many changes since the banana splits... More

We live nearby but have always gone to Meola's dairy for Ice cream. But we decided to try something new. I am glad we did. The server was friendly and greeted us as soon as we walked up. Our group all got ice cream and had different flavors. We all enjoyed the rich creaminess of the ice cream. My only... More

I have read the one star and two star reviews that this restaurant has received on TripAdvisor. I can only say that the people who posted these reviews were either having very bad days or must lack tastebuds or both. This one is a local gem that serves fresh delicious food. I'm already looking forward to our next visit.

The food is just fair and the prices are through the roof for what it is. there are much better local places with better food and service.

we're sorry you found our food priced "through the roof". Our prices are more than the local "pub grub"....we know because we dine out often. Our prices reflect quality ingredients, locally sourced when we can. More

I work in customer service and I know how difficult it can be to keep people happy, especially an entire restaurant. With that being said, I went with my two friends to get ice cream. We waited for about 20 minutes and were told 3 times by a server, "I'm so sorry, I'll be right with you." Eventually the owner... More

We are sorry the service was not 100 percent. If you had noticed, we were SLAMMED with business that day which was very unusual for that time period. That been said, we could not bring in another person at short notice. Service & food issues are very rare & there's usually a reason that we do the best we can... More

I really like their ice cream and so are my kids. Although i think its overpriced. My husband and i had a lunch there. The inside of the place needs major remodeling, felt old and not welcoming and dark. WE had few sandwiches (corned beef and chicken), it was okay, nothing to rave about it and again it was overpriced... More

We are famously known for our premium ice cream {The Best in Worcester County since 1951}. Our homemade fresh food is also exceptional. Nothing frozen, no microwaves. We serve lunch and dinner daily. Wild Grilled Salmon, Angus Burgers, Quinoa Tabbouleh Wraps, creative salads, sandwiches. Best kids meals in town...include Pinecroft Ice Cream. No distracting TV's or Keno! Just great food & service at family friendly prices. Our 5th Annual Outdoor Concert Series is happening weekends in June through August. Check website.
