Ice Cream

The ice cream is great. The staff is friendly. Parking isn't too far from here. You can walk up to the window for your ice cream or go inside.

Creamy delicious ice cream, great service. Usually a wait for a table. Have never tried food just ice cream which is excellent. Many flavors, floats, shakes anything you could want they've got.

I should really give this place 2 1/2 stars, as it's about halfway between poor and average, but the service was pretty bad so I give it 2 stars. I went there after seeing it on Man Vs Food just to give it a try. We started out with a lunch entree, which we sent back as it was ordered... More

This place is great! We travel from Pleasanton just for ice cream! Black & Tan Sundae is the best. Have eaten dinner here a few times as well. Wings are great and other dinner food we have tried has always been good as well.

Good place with good ice cream and friendly staff. There are other choices for ice cream on Main Street but if you want a traditional ice cream place this will do.

This is sorta like Walnut Creeks answer to Fenton's, and while not quite as good, it's actually pretty close. So that plus saving me the drive to Piedmont makes this one of my go to ice cream/late dinner places in WC.

We had the kitchen sink last year and my little boy still talks about it. The grandparents were quite happy too.

There ice cream speciaties are great. Some of their larger ice cream creations are outragious, but always memorable like the kitchen sink which can feed a table full of guests. There is a large sekection of ice cream flavors and toppings to choose from. They also serve food, but we usually go here following dinner somewhere else. My only complaint... More

If you like pub-grub and ice cream, this is your place. It's not really unique. Its a good place for lunch and dessert if you're just looking for decent bite.

We truly enjoyed our ice cream sundaes. Each came with loads of hot gooey toppings, the caramel is to die for. The scoops of ice cream were huge and a two scoop sundae would easily feed two people. The ice cream was smooth, rich, and creamy with lots of flavor. We made the mistake of ordering a two scoop sundae... More
