Rosy’s Ice Cream and Diner: Restaurant Review

By in Richland Restaurants with 4 Comments

Yes, the ice cream is GREAT.  And the food’s not half-bad either!

Rosy’s is in the Riverwalk Village development off of Bradley (take GW Way to Bradley, wave at me as you pass the Windermere office, and then proceed to Rosy’s, on the river side of the street).  It prides itself on its 50’s-themed decor.  I wasn’t around then, but I did watch Happy Days when I was a kid, so I’m familiar with the decade.  Rosy’s even has a room you can reserve for 50’s-themed parties and events.

So, lunch…you have lots of choices; hot sandwiches, deli sandwiches, wraps, soup, chili, burgers, salads, and more.  The servings are generous and tasty.  I really like the BLT, which also has avocado, so technically it’s a BLTA, right?

The service is really good and the staff is extremely friendly. It’s always fun to drop in and grab a seat in a booth.  The menus come promptly and just enough time elapses before the server takes your order.

I usually am too stuffed to order dessert right after my lunch, so I wait a bit before walking back over for some ice cream.  They have some unique flavors (moose droppings, anyone?).  Every one I’ve tried, though, has been quite yummy, and they’re BIG scoops.  If you’re out with the kids in the summer at Howard Amon Park, take a quick walk to Rosy’s at the end of the day and treat your group to ice cream. You’ll have happy campers, believe me.

Hours are 6am-10pm, EVERY DAY!!! Breakfast is served 6-11:30, Lunch is served 11am-5pm, and dinner is served from 5-10.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.

  1. I’ve hit Rosy’s a couple times, both of which they were absolutely packed… I’m not sure if they’re understaffed, or just that busy.
    The burger I had wasn’t too bad — although I’ve made better at home. The ice cream, however, was very tasty. My wife ordered one of their sundaes/banana splits, and it looked positively decadent.

    Think about a how big a single scoop of ice cream is at one of the big chains. Double to triple that and you’ll get an idea for how much ice cream you’ll get at Rosy’s. And it’s twice as delicious!

  4. Cari McGee says:

    Gee, due to Doug and Benjamin’s raving, looks like I’m going to have to get some ice cream soon, even though it’s supposed to be in the 20’s for a high later this week!
