We started the evening out by going to Sweet Basil, which is a Thia food restaurant next to Emack and Bolio's. Great meal there (see review). While eating at Sweet Basil we watch a family of 7 walking into E&B's and come back out with a huge...I mean HUGE...bowl of ice cream, like a Sundae. They all just split the... More

You will love the variety of ice cream, the choices of cones are to die for. There's lots of other chocolates and candies to choose from too. A fun place, your children will be in ice cream heaven. LOL Go outside and listen to the live music on a warm summer night. Great night, thank you!

We walked down from the Spectrum after a movie on a beautiful Friday evening. We enjoyed our yummy ice cream and some live music in the side courtyard. This was a very nice ending to a fun night on Delaware Avenue.

Really fun flavors with good things mixed in. But I don't find the taste to be superior to that of, say, a particular convenience store ice cream. The service is awesome and the location is pretty awesome too. I like to go just because it is fun to hang out.

Ice cream parlors are disappearing and it's a nice thing to know that there is still a place where you can find a table inside (or out!) for a bit of sweetness on a hot summer day. Even the doggies get a treat with frozen yogurt and a milk bone! Another nice touch on Delaware Ave!

Every time I'm in Albany I must stop in at Emack & Bolio's. The Ice Cream is the best I've ever had, and the feel of the place is great. Love the decor, love the folk singers in the back room. Love everything.

Although the prices are a bit high, the product is excellent, the staff is outstanding, and the clean, neat, and fun atmosphere is excellent. Whether you want to play a game inside, relax outside, or just hang around, it is all good. The staff is excellent and always in great spirits. This ... Is a great spot!
