I love going to Ashley's. There's either a new spin on an old favorite flavor, or a new blend waiting to be tried. The ice cream is fresh tasting and fun. The perfect ending for a stroll on the green.

When we went inside and got on line, there were only around 20 people ahead of us. The line moved fast, and we got to witness some very talented young women use a lot of elbow grease in stuffing around a quart of ice cream into a pint, and actually achieving success-- we were in awe!

Apparently, Ashley's was voted the best ice cream in the state. And the October evening we visited, the place was very crowded. I was the only person in our party who thought the ice cream was only average; the others thought it was excellent. The wall of creative hand-drawn testimonials was worth seeing.

Fresh creamy ice cream, frozen yogurt, shakes, etc. Lots of toppings to choose from....Great place to stop on a summer night; for New Englanders any time is good time for ice cream. Lots of choice restaurants in the Branford area, save room for dessert and get an ice cream at Ashley's.

We have a great time every time we've been to Ahsley's.For our last visit, I had the red velvet frozen yogurt, and it was delicous. My favorite flavor of ice cream there is pumpkin, which is seasonal. Can't wait for fall! We much prefer going here over Ben and Jerrys.

The ice cream is ok, however for the price it makes it not worth it for me. Not bad quality or unclean or anything, just a little pricey for the average quality ice cream that it is.
