I scream, you scream... we ALL scream for MOONEY'S 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... read more

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

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

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
