Great Ice cream and Saginaw tradition

Mooney's goes way back in Saginaw's history and moved to this location many years ago which is nice as it is only a mile away. There ice cream is very good. Selection and toppings extensive yet reasonably priced. They always have sugar free options as well. Their seating is limited and summer lines... read more

Mooney's brand of Ice cream is very good. If you order a "single", it is actually two scoops. You can choose two different flavors in a "single" order. That is what I did. I dined here during the Christmas season. No huge crowd and the owners have animated figurines set up at the counter and at the tables. FUN! The... More

I've been coming here for many years. You get the best bang for your buck here in terms of the amount of ice cream and it's great ice cream!

Hand packed Rona Brand ice cream by cone or dish. Their "single" dip price results in you actually getting a rather large cone that is a double dip for everywhere else in the world.

Nostalgic. Old fashioned ice cream parlor. Fun for the whole family. They give you lots and lots of ice cream.

This place is the best! Servings aren't skimpy and the workers always share a smile. LOVE the waffle cones - did you know a single is actually 2 scoops of ice cream AND you can pick 2 different flavors? Who wouldn't love this place? Be prepared to stand in line on hot summer nights - it's the place to be!

This store is a summer time hit, with so many choices. Excellent, delicious icecream, with a long history of quality icecream.

We love this place. Great value, even the baby-size is plenty large. I have rated them before but it's been a while and it is still awesome so I am doing it again! Has the small town feel and good service. It might take a while when they are busy but the premium ice cream is worth the wait.

I think I paid $3.5- for a single in waffle cone, which was actually a double. I love peanut butter and they had several varieties, so I was happy. They had MANY flavors! The ice cream was delicious and just the treat I was looking for. Not hard to find, I would return = ))) and recommend to anyone who... More
