I like their ice cream and cheeseburgers. The atmosphere is has the fifties records on the wall with fifties music playing.

Excellent place to take the family, usually hit it after ball games or if we are getting home in the evening and don't want to fix dinner. Great friendly staff and of course ice cream!

Stopped by yesterday for a shake and took over 15 minutes for someone to wait on me. One man in front of me and he was griping on the service. Counted 5 people behind the bar and no one was in an "active" mode. The shake was very good but would go elsewhere next time. Don't have the time to... More

Swoogers is a locally owned business and reminds me of the diners from the 50's and 60's. The staff are incredibly nice and the food is always good. I especially like the fact that it is always fresh and is cooked to order. They have incredible soups which are freshly made by the owner every day. Their broccoli cheddar soup... More

Stopped in with some coworkers for lunch. The staff was pretty nice but the sandwiches looked like something I through together at home! Only with cheaper ingredients and less taste!

No matter what you order it is fresh and good! Have meals on certain days or you can always get a sandwich. Ice Cream tops off a great meal.

Good food, good prices. Retro decor. 50's & 60's background music. Lunch sandwiches and salads; dinner plates in the evening. Serves "Tony's" famous ice cream, cones, shakes and sundaes. Where the locals eat. Stop by for a sandwich and a shake!

Great price, great ice cream, and great people. If you're looking for THE local hangout for the best ice cream in town...LOOK NO FURTHER!!! The scoops are HEAPING, and the prices are low. Best tasting ice cream around. You simply MUST STOP in for a cone!

We had eaten next door at Love's and was told the ice cream was good. We decided to try it and we both had peach ice cream that was delicious and creamy. You get a really big ice cream cone for a reasonable amount. We didn't eat anything else there so don't know about the food but definitely worth stopping... More

While the service here is a little slow and they stop taking orders after 8:30, your food will be good. Don't forget to get some great local ice cream!
