Love Bruster's homemade ice cream. Many choices of flavors and toppings. The Pistachio has tons of nuts and the Butter Brickle with toffee was wonderful. Local business that I like to support. Plenty of outdoor seating. Service with a smile.

I stopped by to grab some lunch instead of ice cream. The Nathan's hot dogs were good and did not take long to be served. Looking forward to returning for ice cream.

After living in the area for a year, I recently discovered This little gem. We have several fro-yo places and even some dippin' dots but hadn't realized we had an REAL/NORMAL ice cream place. They have tons of flavors that they allow you to sample from, all sorts of fun kid creations and adult sundaes to choose from. Great place... More

We went here on our last night in town. Was not disappointed. I ordered a banana split. They were out of bananas so it was half price which was fine. The ice cream I had was vet creamy. It was way way better than Baskin- Robbins.... Would go again !

Nothing like an after dinner brownie sundae or ice cream concotion to make the night complete. Endless flavors, so most groups should be able to find something they would like.

Ice cream was a bit soft. Lil over priced. Location makes it favorable for a quick snack. Toppings are generous. Young staff that's not too attentive.

If you have never had Bruster's ice cream you are missing out. the peanut butter sundae is AWESOME!!! I don't know why they took the only one in memphis away. Now we can't get it unless we find a sate while we are on vacation to eat there. I would recommend their ice cream to anyone and any flavor!!

So tasty! I want more. We had the vanilla sundae with hot fudge and peanut butter cups. My 2 year old got a free kids cone which thrilled her to no end!
