Best ice cream!

This place takes ice cream to a new level. They are always experimenting with new flavors and it is homemade. They welcome their customers by name and everyone seems happy to be working there.

The ice cream here is decent. But the prices are high. We ate at the Gannon's in the valley and the neighborhood is questionable but there was inside seating and tables.

Best ice cream around. Long lines but moves fast. Go to sundae, peanut butter perfection ice cream topped with marshmallow and peanut butter sauce. I always order the same thing because it's that good.

I've searched out delicious ice cream all over the country and this is one of my favorites. Their chocolate is good and chocolaty, all ice creams are perfectly creamy, their milkshakes are beyond gigantic and the list goes on. These photos were from a visit to their downtown location, which is not on trip advisor, the only thing that I... More

Looking for an after dinner treat, we stopped by late on a Friday night. The parking lot was full and the line was out the door, but it moved quickly. It was a nice summer evening and folks were sitting around enjoying their cones and cups. There is no inside seating that I saw, so come in fair weather. Big... More

Consistently fantastic ice cream. Cappuccino crunch and chocolate raspberry are very good. If line is long outside, check inside as line is often shorter there.

I have brought my girls here twice because of reading all of the reviews. I wasn't very impressed the first time, so we tried it again. Both times, I feel that the ice cream all had the same flavor. Prices were high, but where can you get inexpensive ice cream in a cone these days. Good ice cream, but would... More

We decided to give this place a try based on the good reviews and were not disappointed by the ice cream. At a reasonable price, Gannon's offers a good choice of delicious flavors, from old standbys like strawberry and coffee to bolder choices. It's a bit out of the way from the rest of Syracuse, but it's worth it to... More

Lots of flavors, all of which are good, but could be a little creamier. I'm not sure it lives up to the hype it seems to get around here but the ice cream is certainly good.

I've been coming here since I was 12. Never disappointed! Lots of flavors to pick from. Try the ice cream cakes too!
