Mooney's is the name sake of the old Mooney's Ice Cream on Gratiot. They do serve Mooney's Ice Cream but it not made by the old place, which was bought out, but on that hot summer night they still get a line out the door serving some of the best cones in Saginaw!

Mooney's always has lots of flavors to choose from and the quality is consistently great. Portions are filling. On hot summer days, there can be a bit of a wait. Only real downside is that the owner and staff are not very friendly. A few smiles would go a long way!

Grew up eating their ice cream, and although it may not be the same location it still makes the same best out-of-this-world ice cream. Try their Blue Moon and Superman Ice Cream

This isn't the same location we visited as kids but it is still the best ice cream in Saginaw! Mooney's is the one all others are compared to and the only comparable is in Englewood Florida @ Lickity Split Cafe!! 😃

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.
