Good

They have a nice variety of flavors and they're reasonably priced. I didn't try the food, but the ice cream was great.

Stopped here for ice cream while traveling though the area as part of my business with 2 associates. The staff was nice and friendly and did a good job of filling our order. We ordered our ice cream and moved outside as there is no inside seating area. There is a covered picnic table in the parking lot where we... More

We stopped for dessert on June 1, and we were amazed at the number of flavors. My date had a butter pecan cone and said that it was excellent. I had a cherry malt that was also excellent. Stop here for some very good ice cream

We were at first a bit daunted by the 50 flavors of soft serve, but when my son realized he could have egg nog soft serve (in March!) he was set. Wife had a "glacier", and I had three scoops of Blue Bell. All very good, and... More

We have used this ice cream place 4 times and never been disappointed. We do only get a medium or large chocolate dipped ice cream cones but they are always GREAT. Highly recommend this as an after dinner dessert stop. $ 2.50 for medium dipped cone and well worth it.
