Kids and wife loved it. The boys had cotton candy ice cream. They loved it. Wife had a peanut butter and chocolate ice cream that she loved. I split a large vanilla shake with our daughter. It was good but not special. Then again, it was a vanilla shake... They gave the 2 year old a free baby cone and... More

We had a group of 10 that was looking for a late night treat. Most ice cream places was closed. Not only was this place open late the ice cream was good. They have waffle cones, sundays, milk shakes and slushies.

The hand-dipped ice cream was mushy and runny as tho it was soft-serve ice cream. For the price, small portion size, and the horrible quality of the ice cream, I would definitely not recommend making a purchase of this pricy ice cream! While sitting at their outside picnic tables on the concrete patio we were repeatedly bitten by ants that... More

Our family really enjoyed our treats from Bruster's. The flavor options had me wishing we could have stopped there more than once!

A nice cool treat after a long, hot day. Lots of options, but bring your wallet. A bit pricey. Delicious, but pricey.

Bruster's has great ice cream! The black raspberry chocolate chunk is always a favorite. Our family loves the waffle cones which they pile high with 2 scoops of ice cream. It is a little pricey as one waffle cone with ice cream is around $6 but the ice cream is great. Lots of flavors and items to choose from. Be... More

We waited about 15 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. Portions were gigantic, flavor swerve fantastic. I would recommend the sea salt caramel with toffee and/or the pistachio.

Took the family out for ice cream for dessert after a meal and it was well worth the trip. The lines can be long but even of you have to wait it is well worth it.

To look at the crowd, this place was hoppin'!! We ordered different ice-cream sundaes, shakes, cones, etc. (we had a big group). Although it was good, it probably wasn't any better than Braum's in our area. It was fun going there though and we will go back.
