We have made several visits to Great Lakes Ice Cream when visiting family in Midland. This town is lucky to have a community-invested establishment with a wonderful product. There is definitely a homey feeling in the small store with cut-out canoe benches. There is outdoor seating and a yard for the kids to run around on their sugar buzz. Although... More

We love Great Lakes Ice Cream! This is a great spot for family and friends to enjoy a good high quality ice cream cone. If you want cheap ice cream, go to Dairy Queen, this is not that. They always have unique flavors, of which the mint chocolate with andies mints is my favorite, but they have plenty of others.... More

Ice cream is pretty good but man, tiny servings and a huge price. I thought ColdStone Creamery was expensive till I was at GL a few times. I'd go to CS in a heartbeat if we still had one.

Great local ice cream parlor. Unique flavors of ice cream made locally - several with Michigan related names. Servings are very large. Really nice to hang out on the porch in a rocker or on a bench to eat an ice cream cone on a beautiful evening.

Asked to talk to manager regarding a fund raiser, could we place a sign, near their door? Simple answer could have been delivered politely, but this guy was just a jerk. If the answer is no, than okay, we would have understood, and simply moved on. This happened at other places and we were okay with that we understood, but... More

This little place makes some good ice cream. I like to stop in on my bike and grab a cone. They've got some good creations.

They do not weigh servings. That was something they tried several years ago so people could have as much or as little ice cream as desired. The ice cream is fresh, servings generous, servers friendly. Free ice cream with ID on your birthday.
