The store was packed when we went; there was a line out into the parking lot. But the service was excellent and the staff kept the line moving smoothly. I think we only waited about 5 minutes before we were getting our ice cream( which was amazing). Large portions for small amount of money, and it was very good.

When I was a child, my mother would drive me & a number of my siblings up from Chicago to Saginaw to visit our Grandma. Each time we went, the trip consisted of three things we children loved - Grandma, Vernor's Ginger Ale and Mooney's Ice Cream. To this day, I judge all other ice cream by Mooney's! Their vanilla...

We love Mooney's, don't forget about them in the winter, the ice cream is still just as good! GREAT value, lots of ice cream for very little money, millions of favors that you can try a taste of before committing to a whole scoop. They also stock a few ice cream cakes in the freezer if something comes up to... More

It says I visited in August, but in reality I go to Moonies more than I should!! It is delicious ice cream with unique flavors and the value is top notch! But be warned! A single is actually two scoops and a double is three scoops! Favorite flavors include cinnamon crumb cake, chocolate, moose tracks, mackinac island fudge, and cookies... More

This is the classic local ice cream shop. They serve really large portions of delicious ice cream. I get a baby scoop which fills a whole styrofoam cup full.

We took my 93 year old mother there for a treat, she had the Black Cherry and loved it. My wife and I usually split a Banana Split, they are big and with so many choice of ice cream and several topping. Always friendly no matter how busy they are.

Came here after going to the nearby Greek Fest, and considering that it was pretty hot out, it was a refreshing treat. With the long lines (due to the hot weather), the service was pretty slow, but with only 2 young girls assisting, it was understandable. Others didn't seem to be as forgiving. Be patient people! Husband and I split... More

Stopped at Mooney's not once but twice during my summer stay in MI. Nice change to get Real ice cream, overly generous servings. Will go back next summer..
