Great place to stop for lunch or an ice cream while biking on the Little Traverse Wheelway. Good burgers and sandwiches. Custard ice cream. See menu and hours attached.

We were told this is one place we needed to go when on vacation in Petoskey. Well they were right have the brownie sundae with hot fudge and it was very yummy too much for me to eat. Very 50-ish nice 50s music closes at 8 though but staff is very friendly.

We stopped here while vacationing in the area. The atmosphere seemed cool so we stopped in for a quick break from heat ( yes, it was 90 in MI in August). We all got fruit smoothies. My kids originally ordered ones with bananas but they were out of bananas at 2pm.That's when you send someone up the street to the... More

My wife loves custard ice cream and the Bob-In has great custard. We stop whenever we are in Petoskey, maybe twice.

Great stop for a fun dinner with the kids. Old 40's/50's theme. Good ice cream and I saw they barreled their own root beer!

If you are old enough to remember frozen custard from your youth - this is the place for you (or to introduce yourself or your kids to the frozen treat made right on the premises). Vanilla, chocolate, or flavor of the day with cones, sundaes, milkshakes and the like available. Well worth an afternoon or evening stop.

Frozen custard and so much more. This little diner, that I thought was an ice cream place, was so much more. It is always busy...so I had been going next door to Kilwins for ice cream. Today I decided to find a parking space and see what it was about and I am so glad that I did! The decor... More

It was a pretty busy place. The ice cream was fabulous but the rest of the menu was pretty unhealthy. Kind of expensive as well.
