Every new city we move to we look for Brusters!! It's the best ice cream by far! The Cornelius location is great ... close to Birkdale but without the crowds and near Lake Norman for a treat after boating.

Always have loved Bruster's Ice Cream. My favorite is White Turtle. I love caramel. I tried the Sea salt one time, and it had a very salty aftertaste, which I haven't tasted in other brands of the same flavor. Maybe it was only that batch. I am willing to give it a second try.

Best icecream in the area. There is no doubt or comparison. You will pay for it, but the best icecream ever. No inside seating. They service Nathans hot dogs also which I have never had. The service has always been solid. Other than a few regulars, the flavors change daily. Definitely try the White Turtle if it is available. Be... More

Wonderful stop on a hot day returning from Birkdale Cinemas. Just outside seating, but that is okay on a summer day! Not so handy if it rains. Excellent choices and friendly service.

I try to frequent Brusters whenever I can - love the chocolate raspberry truffle the best. Great ice cream and not too expensive

The flavors are great!!! Order your favorite ice cream in their Oreo cookie sandwiches!!! The folks are very nice too! We had a playgroup tour of the place, they showed the children how they make the ice cream. The kids LOVED it!!!! They have great cakes and this location has Nathan's for a hotdog or fries. Great fundraising opportunities too!!!

I went here knowing this was a chain facility, but had hopes I was be surprised. I was not. Service was slow and I think I must have chosen the wrong flavor as I had better ice cream from the truck that drives through my neighborhood
