Great ice cream, lousy service

Went to Ashley's while on vacation. Excellent ice cream, good size scoops. Pricey but real ice cream so worth it in my opinion. My complaint is the service. Clearly staffed by teenagers, we couldn't get to the counter to order because all of their friends were just hanging out. Once we got to the... read more

Creamy, flavorful ice cream in all your favorite flavors plus many more added to the menu periodically. The sundaes are wonderfully made with a variety of toppings available to choose from. The only problem is the ice cream is so good you'll want to go back too often!

This is simply the best place for ice cream....especially coconut (when they have it)! They also serve frozen yogurt, hot fudge sundaes and good toppings. It's a Guilford, CT staple!

You only go here for the ice cream, but that is very good. The ice cream is pricey. Kids own posters and pictures all over the wall, tables and chairs to eat your cone.

Ashley's Ice Cream is a definite treat. You have your basic flavors like chocolate, oreo, and coffee, but they have other specialty flavors. I'll agree the portions are a bit big, but still tasty.

Ashley's makes delicious, homemade ice cream. We go here about 1-2x a month. Always great service. The only reason for 4 stars is that it's pricey (expect to spend about $10 for 2 ice creams) and their flavors are really inconsistent. Sometimes they have several flavors if want to buy and other times I'm disappointed by their selection. Their standby... More

I went to Ashley's for the first time a few days ago to treat myself and two friends to ice cream. Bought a child's size and two regular size cups of ice cream (which would likely be considered "small" size at any other ice cream shop) and the total price came to $15 and change. These were not even elaborate... More

The ice cream is delicious but there are no rest room facilities. This is a big issue - ice cream cones and unwashed hands do not go together. Also, it is a problem if you go there with young children and they need to go to the bathroom. A new location is in order.
