Delicious Ice Cream but avoid the Lactose Free stuff

A lot of choices for ice cream and toppings. I had the Mint Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Covered Cherry in a choc waffle cone. Delicious! Unfortunately, my husband had Lactose Free banana - he was not impressed :-(

Just really felt like an ice cream after walking around in the warm weather. Pleasantly surprised at the large number of choices and combinations we could come up with.

From the outside looks a bit like a dive considering the worn out signage and dilapidated building. Go up the stairs and you will find an excellent selection of home made ice creams to die for. The milk shakes in particular are about 95% ice cream and are delicious. Not great for the waist line but excellent on the taste... More

Went during a Saturday night after 9pm and it had very few customers. Place was clean inside but cant say the same for tables outside. The board with all ice cream flavors and options is overwhelming. Ordered the piece of ice cream cake on a stick and it was good (cookies and cream). Like another reviewer was kind of surprised...

Ok so this place looks tired & needs a lick of paint outside & in. Ok the signs threatening you'll be towed away if you dare leave your car after buying ice cream made us laugh oh & the sign saying you must all choose in your party before ordering or else (not the friendly American way we've come to...

It's always refreshing to get ice cream from a locally owned establishment that makes their own ice cream. They advertise only the finest ingredients and freshest fruit. This rustic place offers homemade ice cream, soft serve ice cream, sugar free options, shakes sorbets and more. Tons of options for toppings or mix ins and a slew of sundae options. Anyone... More

We enjoyed our vacation so much more every night with a quick trip to Joe's for a little sweet treat. It gets packed but the line moves fast. All the ice cream is home made and they have so many flavors to choose from. We all got a different flavor or menu item each night and we were never disappointed.... More
