Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlor

My kids beg me to go to Goody Bassett's all the time. They love the ice cream. I've had great and not so great flavors. The atmosphere is a little dreary and there are no tables. There are benches out front to sit and enjoy your ice cream. It's one of our favorite places for ice cream in Stratford... read more

De-licious ice cream! An excellent choice for good old-fashioned ice cream in a cone or dish! They have a good selection of flavors and the staff is friendly

pjoy47, Owner at Goody Bassett's Olde Fashioned Ice Cream Shoppe, responded to this review

I was concerned about this review of our service. I viewed our video surveillance and found that most inappropriate behavior from this group. For over 10 minutes, while other customers waited behind them, they were continually taste-testing, reaching over the sneeze guards and touching serving items and acting poorly for adults. The video clearly shows my workers greeting them when... More

A small root beer float was 3 scoops and a full can of root beer. For $4 this seems pretty reasonable to me! Tasted delicious and the atmosphere of the place was super cute! Loved the Easter displays in the windows!

It's never too cold for ice cream, especially when it is rum raisin. I was told about Goody's down in Stratford Center so my sweetheart and I went to try it out. As she was not feeling the best after our dinner, she just had some of my rum raisin ice cream. Order it in a cup. Prices are reasonable... More

Wow, my hubby and I were in CT hanging out with our friend and brought us here. They have the best home made ice cream. We had Rum Raisin and what's great is the owner told us he uses real Myers Jamaican rum to make it. My husband is from Jamaica so we know the rum. I also had White... More

After a wonderful day exploring he surrounding area we came a bit out of our way to try the ice cream after reading the reviews. All I can say is that it was definitely worth it. Generous portions, unique flavors and well priced. As soon as we walked through the door and smelled the amazing scent of fresh waffle cones... More
