Pretty Great Ice Cream

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... read more

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

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.

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.
