Mmmm I Scream for Mooneys

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... read more

I reccommend a baby or junior size portion of ice cream, they give you alot. The waffle cones are wonderful.

I've been going to Mooney's ever since I moved to the area a couple years ago. The staff is great, prices are very reasonable, and the ice cream is really good. Awesome to see they are open during all seasons. Bring cash though because they don't accept credit/debit cards. A very, very minor inconvenience to get the best ice cream... More

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
