What a fun place to stop and at a place that is legendary in the area! My friend and I had the soft serve ice cream. The cone was very tall and I had mine dipped in cherry -- it was so fun to sit outside on their benches and enjoy a treat on a hot day!!!

Snowman is just awesome! I won't go into a lot because other reviews say it all, I will just second everyone else! Too many favorites to list.

My wife and I took a ride to Troy last night to go to Dinosaur Barbecue and get desert at Snowman. The place was packed, but like other people said the line moved pretty quickly. I had a regular size cone (2 huge scoops 1 Brownie and 1 Snickers) and as soon as I saw it I knew I needed... More

A summer staple in Lansingburgh. Sundaes, shakes, waffle cones, regular cones, hard ice cream, soft serve, frozen yogurt...you name it, they've got it! I was just there last weekend. It was a half an hour before closing but it was fairly chilly May evening so I was sure there wouldn't be a line. I was WRONG!

My husband dreams of their Boston shakes. He gets malt and it comes w whipped cream, cherry, hot fudge and the classic shake. He also lives the watermelon sherbert.

I have been going to Snowmans since I was a little kid. I was so excited to get to take my kids there on our recent trip to NY. They loved it just as much as I always have. It is the best ice cream and the best service! Cant wait to visit NY again and get more Snowmans ice... More

If you are in the Capital District or even just fly into Albany airport for any reason, you must stop here. It ranks among the great desserts you'll ever have, including awesomely delicious Florentine gelato or Jersey shore ice.
