Worth driving out of your way to enjoy this fabulous ice cream at 1960's prices. High quality old school place with huge selection of flavors and soft ice cream as well. Any way you like it. Just a wonderful place for kids and grown ups. Enjoy!

I never go to Red Hook without a stop-over at Holy Cow Ice Cream. With a list of flavors to choose from, it isn't hard to find a tasty ice cream treat. Where can you get a delicious hot fudge sundae with real whipped cream for $3.00? The service is friendly and efficient and the ice cream is worth the... More

On a very hot day last week we were looking forward to some ice cream at Holy Cow, especially after reading all the great reviews! The ice cream itself was not very authentic-tasting and the chocolate sauce was definitely NOT made from chocolate. When you know how good ice-cream can be these days (even store-bought), this was definitely a disappointment.... More

This is the most over-rated ice cream in the area. Yes, it is cheap, but for about the same price Stewart's (across the road) puts out a vastly superior product. It does provide a large outside seating area which makes it a nice gathering spot and is often crowded. I tried a number of their flavors, but Stewart's has them... More

This place is a treasure! You won't believe the prices. The ice cream is great, the service is efficient, and you'll love the ice cream. (Be prepared to wait in line at prime times!)

This place is really cheap! That is the only thing special about the place. Long lines and they do not take credit, cash only.

No need to look any further than Holy Cow. This is simply the best ice cream around. More than great ice cream, they have nearly unbeatable prices as well!!!!

If you are in the area you must stop in red hook and hit up the best ice cream anywhere. Great staff is always moving to keep the line going. Go for the udders for dessert!!

Most summer evenings you will find a line out the door and stretching into the parking lot. But do not worry the service is very fast. Everything is delicious from the sundaes and shakes to the home made ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cakes. The prices are terrific as well. People come from near and far to enjoy the... More
