Nice staff. We only came for ice cream, but they serve food as well. The ice cream is good. It's very creamy. We liked it so well we came twice on our short stay on the island.

The ice cream on waffle cone is very good. But was disappointed their "soft serve" machine is being serviced for the entire summer so not available. Did not try their menu items. The whitefish basket seemed expensive for only 1 or 2 pieces.

I ate at Daddy Frank's twice this weekend and would recommend it to anyone. Be sure to bring cash since they don't accept credit or debit. I would encourage anyone to try the Ruben Fries. They are delicious.

The ice cream cones are humongous and a value for the price. The sandwiches are good and there are a variety of good choices. In nice weather, it's great to sit outside
