Locally owned, Shark's makes their own ice cream on location, They have a delicious variety of flavors that will keep you coming back for more. We have patronized Shark's since it's inception and look forward to their Spring opening every year. If you love your ice cream, this is the place to go!

Dot get me wrong the ice cream was good but honestly nothing amazing. The flavors were pretty standard fare and to me didn't taste better than a premium brand. I'm also not a huge hard ice cream fan so I prefer papa Jacks in Victor

Been coming here for over 10 years, and it's one of the best places for ice cream. Everything is homeade and the portion sizes are huge!!! You won't be disappointed. But they do only accept cash.

Without a doubt, this is the best ice cream for many miles around and no one can compete. If you go, the serving sizes can be huge...trust me. Go with the Baby or Kiddie, as Small and Medium are big. The website is http://sharksicecream.com/index.php.

Is this ice cream a bit pricey....yes. Is it worth it....YES! It is nice to walk into a clean, friendly and family oriented business. Shark's does a great job with creating an ice cream that is creamy and full of flavor. We miss them in the winter months!

Wow! Some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten! Rich, creamy, and lots of flavours. I ordered a small, and got two HUGE scoops - I couldn't even finish it. Next time I think I'll try a kiddy cone! Sharks is a little out of the way, but definiitely well worth the trip.

No summer trip to the Finger Lakes region is complete without stopping at Shark's for some delicious ice cream. This place epitomizes everything that is special to me about visiting this beautiful area in the summer. Shark's is only open in the summer and is typically met with long lines on most summer nights where everyone gathers to get some... More

The ice cream here never disappoints. It is made in their store with quality ingredients. Better yet are the large servings for very reasonable prices. Waffle cones are not extra but included in the cost. The only downside is that they can be very busy so you have to wait but worth it.
