We went there based on other reviews. We have had ice cream everywhere from LA to Tuscany. This was nothing special and the lady that served us was not big on service at all and quite unhelpful. The portions are generous with price to match. The atmosphere was nothing special. If you judge the product on it's own merits not... More

Prepare to stand in line and wait a bit ~ it is so worth the wait. The staff is a fun group and very helpful if you have questions. Great service with a smile. They do not take the Discover card as payment.

After dining at one of the great restaurants on grand stop here for ice cream. Guaranteed you will find your favorite, or possibly a new favorite here. They let you taste test. I went with a new one for me, "Black Hills Gold", I will not tell you what it is, you will have to taste test, Excellent service, they... More

The atmosphere is very pleasant, and the staff was very patient in the face of the crowd in there. I understand their ice cream is homemade, which is nice. I found it kind of bland for the price tag, although to their credit, you get a big scoop! I would go again for the atmosphere and it's convenience on Grand... More

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.
