PEPPERMINT ICECREAM!!!

Ah!! I love this place and I'm so sad I moved further away from it. Emack has the most amazing ice creams. There is a peppermint ice cream with Junior Mints in it. It's not that weird green fake stuff, it's pure white with chocolate mints in it and it's AWESOME. Try the crazy rice krispy treat... read more

Emack & Bolio's is a great and fun ice cream parlor that has unique flavors and cereal- coated cones, which are the best part. you can have a fruit loop covered cone, rice crispies, fruity pebbles, crushed oreos, and other options

Great flavors and good prices overall. Very pleasant staff that will gladly give you samples. Great waffle cones and dense rich ice cream. I will go back on my next trip to Albany.

Had a coffee ice cream with chocolate covered espresso beans. Omg. If I could is have one every night. Way too small of a building though. Can't move if more than 10 people in line at the ice cream counter. Love music is not my thing but that was there too.

Awesome flavors of ice cream. Great atmosphere…looks like an ice cream shop you would find on vacation at a seashore town, and it has free live music shows on weekends!!!

Emack and Bolio's is a quality dessert place as long as you don't mind spending and extra buck. From smoothies, ice cream, chocolate, and milkshakes its the one stop shop.

This place was quiet in the mid-afternoon on a weekday, but it's likely to be lively at night and on weekends. The ice cream is excellent, if a little pricey, but that's to be expected for the quality, and the serving is generous. The decor is also noteworthy, and the small tables are widely spaced. So far, as you can... More

This ice cream store/restaurant was excellent for its tasty ice cream and hand-dipped cones. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the quality of the ice cream and hand dipped cones is excellent. A must try for ice cream in Albany. There is also a great mosaic store in the back of the restaurant that is a must see if... More
