best ice cream in ocala

If you're in the mood for ice cream and you're in ocala there are a lot of choices. If I'm on that side of the county, I go for Brusters. It's not the cheapest, but it is the best. All homemade. I have always had the best of service

Great ice cream. My wife and daughter love their new "Mudslide" ice cream. For the money you get giant portions, cool music playing outside. Only con is parking is a bit tight but that is hardly a complaint as the Ice Cream and service are terrific!

My husband and I treat ourselves every once in a while and this place has never disappointed. They have many wonderful flavors. The birthday cake is very yummy, but I recently tried the Key lime pie and now I have a new favorite!! You should give this place a try! There is no indoor seating. We always drive through, but...

Good ice cream, lots of choices, but not the place to go if you want to sit in air conditioning while you cool your insides, as there is no indoor seating. Some shade is provided by the trees.

My family loves heading here for a treat. My little one loves the bubbles, hula hoops and the music. It's a nice place to chill out and have a tasty scoop! Try the birthday cake ice cream, it's the bomb!

I try to stop in for a scoop or two every time I am in the area. Large variety of flavors and a free treat for your dog if you care to bring him.

Vanilla ice cream with Carmel and whole pecans was great super sized dip on a cone with delight that filled my afternoon. The order was taken on the beautiful November Florida afternoon with speed and care. The cream was stacked high on the cone and really hit the spot.

Great homemade waffle cones. We had turtle sundae & brownie sundae. Both had adequate amounts of whipping cream & toppings. Servers were very friendly teenagers.
