Grandkids Said "Stop!" Every Time We Drove By!

Can get very crowded in this tiny shop, but ice cream is great! Line was almost out the door when we arrived mid-afternoon, bot people in line were courteous & friendly.

Holy cow offers delicious quality ice cream at really fair prices and makes it easy to take your whole family out for dessert. Try the brownie sundae with home made brownies and delicious warm hot fudge.

Heard such great things everywhere about this place - but never got to try it. Wanted a hot fudge sundae with chocolate ice cream so so many great sundaes going out the door, but they didn't have hard chocolate - only soft. No chocolate!? Didn't really want anything else and left. Very disappointed after hearing such great things.

We always make it a point to visit Holy Cow at least once while we are visiting friends in Red Hook. They have the best soft ice cream around.

The ice cream, fro yo, and soft serve at Holy Cow is both delicious and inexpensive. Flavors like Holy Cow make it fun and original too. Friendly staff. Plenty of benches to sit outside in the sun.

The soft serve ice cream is the best in the Hudson Valley. Whenever our sons have brought out of area friends there, they become hooked. We keep a supply of the ice cream saucers in our freezer. Love the shakes and the floats.

People come from all over Dutchess County and further afar for Holy Cow ice cream. It's good, but I think people realize what a great bargain they're getting and that's the real reason they come back.

I have enjoyed this Icecream for years - one of the only things to do in Red Hook at night lol. Past few times I have had Icecream there I have returned home and within two hours am sick. I have Icecream other places but no issue - only here. Perhaps there is an ingredient that is causing a problem... More
