An overpriced way of experiencing America's favorite desert. Look elsewhere for better taste, better service, better selection. If this place keeps paying the rent I'll be amazed.

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

My family and I frequent this establishment often. I do not eat ice cream however my family loves it. They have frozen yogurt which is amazing which I love. They also have a great selection and a nice atmosphere. I also enjoy viewing the old pictures on the wall....great family place...can't go wrong with good ice cream....

My family and I finally made it to Goody's this year. Holy yum! This is going to be a new summer staple for sure. The ice cream is delicious, and the shoppe itself is charming. My 6-year-old daughter absolutely loved it and has already asked to go back and get more. It's great to see Stratford-near-the-flagpole so busy. Goody's is... More

I am afraid to sing the praises of this place because the lines are so bad in the summertime as is. I am slowly working my way through all the different flavors. I am currently stuck on Mint Oreo ice cream...SIGH!!! Now they added fudge...Are they trying to kill me? All joking aside, the ice cream is great and the... More

Fantastic REAL lce Cream, the way we all remember it to be in our minds, even if it was not originally this good. Service is good, location is right in the center near a walk to several restaurants and a live theater and mom and pop shopping.

We love mom & pop shops. Good ice cream and varieties. Guy behind the counter is always cranky and sarcastic but if you can past his bedside manner, good ice cream.
