Gannon's is my 'go-to' place for ice cream. Their vanilla is outstanding, but then again, so is their kahlua fudge, candy cane, pumpkin, rum raisin and just about any flavor. I usually end up getting a separate flavor on top and vanilla at the bottom so that I end with the exceptional vanilla taste. Anything else is second best. The... More

If you travel to Syracuse, a visit to Gannon's is a must. The artwork is crazy and fun; the kids will love it. The ice cream is homemade. The flavor are varied and wonderful. This is simply the best. Standing in the long line on a spring or summer night is well worth the time. You won't be disappointed! While... More

So many flavors to choose from and so great to eat. This is the best ice cream around. Don't miss satisfying your IC craving. Go to Gannons! This is not your typical ice cream parlor - whimsical. They have plenty of seating, both in-door and out. You can order at the outside window or go inside and order at the... More

I am never disappointed when visiting the Gannon's Isle in downtown Syracuse and neither will you. It is open winter, spring, summer and fall and provides outstanding soup/chili selections, besides ice cream, during the winter. You are always greeted with a smile and the Manager, Patrick, is always pleasant and accommodating to your needs.

Ice cream perfection is the least we can say. Always served with a smile and choice of treats is excellent. Very popular stop.

Choosing what to have is the hardest decision you'll make! You won't believe the choices! But, you won't be disappointed in whatever you pick!

I saw this place on Buzz Feed and we drove all the way from Ottawa, ON to check it out. It didn't disappoint. We happened to be there at the same time Eileen, the owner, was working. She was lovely and took such great care of us! Hubby had a banana split that was huge and he enjoyed it. Our... More

Visited Syracuse recently and had just seen something about the ice cream shop that was one of the top ten in the country. I have to agree! Everything is homemade and it tastes it. I tried the sea salt ice cream and even though it sounds odd, it was delicious. Our party was a large one, but we couldn't even... More
