My kids ordered ice cream and it ended up costing almost $20 for the three of them! The ice cream is good but definitely over priced.

Ashley's is well known on the shoreline for their quality ice cream and fun flavor combinations. We've never had a bad experience, or bad ice cream at Ashley's.

Best hometown ice cream ever. The girls were friendly and patience as all my kids were deciding what they wanted and the girls even gave them little samples to help.

The bathroom was disgusting!! People have actually written messages on the bathroom door that people should clean it. Please check it before you eat ice cream here!! I'm curious to what the back looks like!!

The selection, quality, and taste is the best you will find. The service can be slow at times because it is so good.

It is pricey, but the ice cream selection is plentiful with unique flavors and toppings. The staff is always friendly, but sometimes they are short staffed so be prepared for a line when you get there.

Ashley's is a great ice cream place. They always have tons of flavors, and hey even have delicious yogurts to delve into. Their ice cream cakes are an awesome deal and are super yummy and delicious. I definitely recommend Ashley's ice cream!

If you want a treat but are watching your food like me try their no sugar low fat ice cream. It tastes like the regular ice cream except you do not have that overwhelming richness from the full fat version. It does not have that weird chemical taste like many no sugar ice creams. It allows you to really enjoy... More
