There is always a line out the door (it moves fast), they are always friendly, and the waffle cones are always fresh. Tons of flavor options (ask for a sample), very kid friendly atmosphere, and a pizza shop next door. Grab an ice cream and walk/shop grand avenue. Hard to beat on a nice summer evening!

Get a waffle cone! They are homemade and super delicious. The line moves along pretty quick. Oh - and the ice cream is pretty good too:o)

If you are in the area, you just have to stop for ice cream! One of MN most loved Ice Cream shops, it attracts a big crowd all summer long! That being said, if the line is out the door, don't fret! It literally takes just minutes to get to the counter to order your ice cream, and then pay!... More

The ice cream was fantastic. Our table had pizza and a couple of us had calzones. The calzones were burnt on the bottom with black specks all over from an obviously dirty pan. The sauce inside was really runny. We couldn't cut through the bottom with a plastic fork. All the kids at our table that had pizza were not... More

Handmade ice cream, huge scoops. Great neighborhood family place! The staff is very friendly and the service is fantastic. On hot days the line can stretch down Grand Ave.

They had me at the smell of fresh waffle cones. We love visiting Grand Ole Creamery whenever we are in the area. The choices of ice cream is outstanding, the product is incredible and it's just a really fun, iconic Grand Avenue destination. You can't go wrong.

We all scream for Ice Cream! Amazing place for some good old homemade ice cream. The waffle cones are so delicious with a choice of many varities of ice cream. Be prepared to wait in line, especially on those spring like days when everyone is out walking the dog.

It has been a while since we have been to Grand Ole Creamery but I recall when it opened. We were living in St. Paul at the time and I was a graduate student. This quickly became our favorite spot for a treat. The homemade ice cream with the creative flavors was always wonderful, especially when it came in the... More

Before heading back to South Dakota, we stopped at Grand Ole Creamery. Previously, I had been there and loved their honey ice cream. Since the flavors rotate, the honey ice cream wasn't available, but the pumpkin pie ice cream was fabulous- it even had marshmallows inside of it. Other had the pistachio, coconut, Mexican chocolate and more. Everyone was very... More

I love ice cream and was very excited to find pralines and cream. A large bowl for $4.90 absolutely made my day. The service was excellent!
