“Food is small, price is big!”
Review of Cappie's Drive In

Cappie's Drive In
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Amsterdam
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 August 2017 via mobile

Legendary drive in run by a local family for decades. Typical drive in fare with real good ice cream, especially home made kind. Reviewers besides me all concur that it's not a great value for your money. The attraction is the history of generations going here. Burgers are thin, portions are small, selection is limited. It's very expensive for fast food type grub. Expect to spend some money. In return, you'll get friendly staff, ok service and not a lot of food for what you're paying.

Want unique ice cream flavors, this is the place to go. Open since 1965, this drive in location has been a family favorite for decades. Growing up waitresses would take orders at your car window or inside and trays of food delivered to driver. Closest to a car hop experience you could get. A bit out of the way but so worth it. Ice cream with huge scoops and awesome prices. Try coconut, maple walnut, raspberry, orange pineapple, lemon, or strawberry cheese.

We found the place very friendly and accommodating to our sons peanut allergy. The food was good tasting and it also had decent portion sizes. We were driving through but if we had the opportunity we would eat there again.

Visited Cappie's last week with our daughter & grandson. Grandson had the chicken dinner with fries & a dinner roll. Daughter had the salad with chicken pieces. Wife & I had hot dogs with all the fixings, fries & onion rings.

Milk shakes, ice cream cones and sundaes followed.

We came for the ice cream after being out of the area for many years. The restaurant is still clean, friendly and tasty. The wait staff and counter staff are what you would want while traveling, they make you feel most welcome. We came for ice cream on a Friday and were back again on Monday for lunch. We look forward to coming back again this summer.
