Simply the best ice-cream ever. Tons of home made flavors to choose from. Grab a walkie and head for the water to take it all in. If you like ice cream, you will love this place. FYI Ben and Jerry didn't make it too long when they attempted to open up on the same street. This place is the best!

Ice cream. Just ice cream. Homemade ice cream. What could be better? A large collection of flavors, which rotates regularly, with a super-creamy taste. It's good to check in advance online to make sure your favorite is there--or to be tantalized by a flavor you didn't know you wanted. Amazing flavor selection and just plain good ice cream.

This is really a great place for the best ice cream around! Generous helpings and so many flavors from which to choose. First time I had ever tried peanut butter ice cream and it was SO good! Great service too!

If a tourist asks, "Who has the best ice cream here in downtown Annapolis?" the response is, " Walk up the Main Street hill and look to the right for the penguins in the window. Despite rising prices all over, this shop has kept theirs within reason. One will be amazed at the unique flavor selection. For me the best... More

HANDS DOWN the best ice cream in town. Only one that makes their own on premises (I'm almost positive). Can't go wrong here.

The servers are nice and patient, and the ice cream is definitely the best in all of downtown. It's all "homemade" and not industrialized. Real ingredients and great quality.

Even in October, this place was very busy. Simple, honest ice cream -- it's a nice place to stop amidst your shopping.

They have a wide variety of flavors which made it hard to pick from. They do let you sample so that makes it easier. Price is perfect not over priced like all the chain places. They will even do half scoops if you can't decided but don't want a lot.

In my opinion the ice cream was very good but not over-the-top and out-of-this-world. I selected the chocolate chip cookie dough and it seemed to be lacking large chunks of cookie dough that I have had at other shops. The ice cream itself was very creamy and the portions they gave were more than substantial. To be fair, it's hard... More
