Mayfield ice cream, need I say more?

Very close to Legoland Florida, the perfect way to end your day. Many of your favorite Mayfield ice cream flavors plus several homemade local treats. Inside seating, pleasant atmosphere. Very good prices on sundaes, cones and specialty frozen treats.

Frozen custard is the speciality of this ice cream parlor. Coming from the UK we are used to a more creamy ice cream than is made in the US and this is the closest we have come to it Freshly made each day, the frozen custard has a soft creamy texture, I choose maple pecan, the other flavor was cookies...

We love trying and supporting local places. Had the turtle sundae which was really good. I'd probably do a two scoop with two toppings next time, because the total turtle was a bit over the top for me. I always hate that u can buy all the makings for a bunch of sundaes at home for the cost of just... More

KC is known for their wonderful custard. We recently stopped in and decided to try their other treats. The turtle track ice cream had frost bite and the rootbeer float was a scoop of vailla ice cream served in a plastic cup and a can of rootbeer. The clerk literally handed us the can of soda. We should have stuck... More

If you are watching the calories this ice cream is the best. Clean and quite environment. A short hop from LEGOLAND.

I think this is better than the chain ice cream places they have to compete with. This is really good ice cream. The place is clean and attractive. The ice cream is as good as it gets. Good service, and lots of parking in the strip mall.

KC and her crews do the best job with Frozen Custard in the area. They love to help out organizations in the community and they are great supporters of the whole community. There are nights dedicated to bringing your Dog and they have outside seating just for that!!

We have been going to the Big dipper for frozen custard since the store opened. We always enjoyed the friendly greeting and welcome by the owner Kristi. On our last visit we were disappointed when we learned that she is not there during the week. We missed her friendly greeting We enjoyed the luncheon meal deal which included hotdog of... More

After trying to eat my Peanut Butter Lover's Sundae, I had to wash my shorts twice to get out the stains from the mess that KC's caused. I noticed that the ice cream was tasting rather gross and burnt toward the end. The hot peanut butter that was poured during its prep apparently had fused the Styrofoam bowl with the... More

We love the Big Dipper and it is conveniently right near our home. The custard is delicious and the special changes daily, with the seasons. It's an attractive place with coin operated games for the kids and a train that the staff turns on that travels all around the restaurant. My kids love it!!
