Peterson’s Ice Cream Depot

A little hut recessed through a fenced walkway just past the railroad. Two benches flank the entrance to the walkway, and a modest little sign for the business. Seating and a kiddie area in back. Your container options are arranged on the counter, weighed down by pennies to keep the wind from bowling them over. The staff were a bit busy chatting, so I ended up rapping politely on the windowsill when I was ready. No minimum for credit card usage. I opted for a waffle cone of the flavor of the week, strawberry cheesecake. I like soft-serve to begin with, and the generous helping practically made me full before I'd even had dinner. The flavors were muted, but still quite good. Multiple flavor requests in the same shake get mixed, not swirled or layered (blackberry and key lime pie are better separate). I can see why this attracts so many regulars. Maybe next time I'm down this way I'll try their barbq hot dog and fries.
Truly glorious amount of ice cream options here. Malt shakes with just the right amount of thickness. Plenty of other different creations unique to their establishment. This should be a mandatory port of call during any visit to Clifton.
OMG the ice cream is amazing!!! It is custard style and just delicious. When you are in the mood for real soft ice cream and need a treat beyond Fro-Yo.. take the trip here. They have all different flavors.. although traditional vanilla and chocolate on a cone is my favorite! They have tons and tons (25+) of sundae, milkshake, and float combinations.. WARNING: The portions are HUGE!! I got a small cone with vanilla and it was enough for at least 2 people. Beware and plan to share! They also have a very large menu with hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, etc... There is a cute seating area in the back with a TV and an area with kids games. You can also order beer in the back. Very, very nice and cute for an ice cream treat. Additionally, the town of Clifton is just adorable and very family oriented. There is a nice park next to the ice cream parlor to take the kids and work off some of that sugar!

Surprisingly good for a little remote location. Outside seating during warm days can be great (they also have heater posts for colder seasons). Their kabop and four cheese pizza are excellent. Wait staff is mostly average.
Came here for drinks and dinner with friends. This place has decent food and decent service. They have a great variety of selection but nothing in particular to make it stand out or "wow" anyone. Alcohol (specifically the cocktails) was delicious but weak though so may have to get two drinks to equal one. I did not meet the owner nor experienced bad service at this place like other reviewers have said. This place is just plain average. Although the decor is kind of strange. It's like a weird clash between trying to be upscale and then giving up half way through and making it a regular diner.
We've been to Rosemary's Thyme a few times before but before we were Yelpers! We were in the area running an errand and decided to stop for dinner. We were greeted when we walked in and told we could sit anywhere. Most of the empty tables were filthy. We chose one by the window that was dirty and then the hostess sighed as if we shouldn't have picked that one. Well then - you shouldnt' have offerred. One tv in the bar was on the Nats game so we asked if the other one could be put on the Caps game. They said, "of course'. They proceeded to turn the channel and the entire time we were the tv said.....your programming is not available. They never bothered to pay attention to what channel they put it on or to find another channel. - Just left it on a blank screen with that simple message. Now no one could watch anything! The waitress came to take out orders and I don't even remember what my husband ordered. It was fine whatever it was. i asked if someone was "good" and she frowned and said I don't like eggplant so I wouldn't know. NICE ANSWER. It was an unusual dish so I decided to try it anyway. It was actually pretty good. Once we got our food - our waitress was never to be seen again. It took forever to get a box for my leftovers and to get the check. I remembered the place being better. I guess I may have been wrong or it's going downhill. Not sure I would bother to try it again - in the neighborhood or not.
