Strickland's is an Akron landmark. Nothing says summer like enjoying a cone on a muggy night. Be sure to check online because their flavors change. Vanilla and chocolate are consistent, but otherwise the flavors change.

A trip back to our old home town. This means visiting many places we enjoyed while living there Stricklands was a favorite evening outing. We always try to stop there when we are in the area. We feel it is the best frozen custard anywhere. On this past trip we were able to get there twice out of the three... More

It is just not summer until your first trip to Stricklands for there creamy cold ice cream. From plain vanilla to rainbow sherbert to the special flavors of the day. Never been disappointed. Now they have franchised with year round stores, it is best to go to the original by the circle and watch plans takeoff and land. The best... More

Strickland's is a staple in the Akron area. Although I am not sure if it is even real custard anymore, or for that matter, if it ever was, I dutifully visit every summer- and it has to be the one on Triplett- just out of tradition. Back in the days when going to the ice cream stand was a special... More

Go to their website for flavor of the day. Butterrum is my favorite! More outdoor seating would be perfect.

Been here forever and has great daily flavors, you can buy your favorites by the pint or quart. In summer the lines can get long but they go fast. And it is worth it!

I love the atmosphere of Strickland's. They have two 'flavors of the day' and they are always tasty and made right there. You can watch the machine cranking out the ice cream. After you get your choice, you can sit and watch the small engine planes take off and land at the airport right across the street. Great family atmosphere,... More

I paid $3 for an average sized cone. It was good but so is Bryer's and other ice creams that I can but at a store and get more than one serving.
