One of the things that we in the Quad Cities are really proud of is Whitey's Ice Cream. From cones to malts and shakes and specialty dishes, you absolutely cannot go wrong with your choice. Enjoy this delectable Q.C. original whether you're a local or a visitor!

My family likes Whiteys and makes a point to take out of town guests there so they can enjoy this unique place. Although we love Whiteys, it is a little pricey so we only go for special occasions...and when a craving for Smurf ice cream comes up.

This ice cream is top notch. You'll get spoiled and won't want any other kind. Service is great, and there is outdoor seating.

Whitey's ice cream has that "old time" creaminess I loved as a kid growing up in upstate New York. I wish they would bring back some of the old time flavors. It must be 25 years since I had orange-pineapple ice cream.
