The best ice cream! Trust me you will not be disappointed. Many other locations in the Quad-Cities too.

This is a home town product popular with everyone who ever lived in the Quad Cities. It is clean and well staffed by local young persons. You won't be disappointed!

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.

Delicious ice cream would rather have Whiteys over any other ice cream out there! We have had a wide variety of chain ice cream stores here in the Quad Cities but none compare to Whiteys.

This is the best ice cream around. I always get the "Graham Central Station" with a waffle cone. We were there this past Saturday afternoon as it had been snowing all day. We walked in mid-afternoon and the place was packed! This speaks volumes about an ice cream place that is packed on a snowy day in the dead of... More

My wife and I just returned from a weekend trip to the Quad Cities and brought home 3 coolers full of shakes and other ice cream treats. Although all of the products are good, it's the shakes with a candy bar mix-in and the vanilla flavoring that has me hooked. Whenever you order a shake they ask if you want... More

You absolutely cannot visit the Quad Cities (Ii-Ia) without stopping at Whiteys Ice Cream for a cone, sundae, or pint. There's a reason they've been in business since 1933 - they're flat out the best ice cream you've ever tasted. They no longer pull the trick of flipping your malt upside down just before handing it to you but they... More

This is one of those places that only the locals understand. But even if you are not from the QCA and try Whitey's - you'll be hooked for life. These are great flavors in not your typical combinations. Everything is great and is just like an old time ice cream parlor. I did see another review on Camo ice cream... More

Camo ice cream is one of the best scoops I have had. Plus money is donated from sales of ice cream to military organization. Ice cream stays cold even on hot days and full of flavor in each bite.
