Ice cream is ok, wasn't a fan of the guy behind the counter, not very helpful at all, and seemed to have no patience with my son, when asking questions. I will not be back to many other places with better service.

I love the ice cream at this location. It is delicious and cheap, but what makes it even sweeter is the owner's "I'd rather be dead" attitude towards ice cream, happiness, and human existence. I love eating my delicious ice cream knowing that he despises his existence making it because he works here open to close EVERYDAY. I live in... More

Best homemade ice cream that I have ever had. The line was back to the door when we got there but it moved super quick! Can't wait to go back! Price was reasonable!

First time here and the ice cream was great. Would be nice if you could taste stuff before buying. To taste stuff u have to buy the sampler that's all well and good but if you don't like the flavors your now stuck! The guy behind the counter had the personality of a snail.....seemed like he was annoyed there were... More

How do you open an ice cream shop and treat your customers like you are a troll. We liked the ice cream but the curmudgeon owner ruins the experience. We took our grandson and he was as cute as he could be and the owner looked like he had been sucking lemons all day instead of making ice cream. The... More

What a delicious spot for ice cream! They have such a wide variety of flavors. Whenever I am in the Mayfaire/beach area, I am sure to stop by. My only complaint is one of the employees is extremely rude. He makes it obvious when he isn't in the mood to make something on the menu. We had asked for a... More

This ice cream is homemade and extremely tasty. We were told that the owner travels to farm outside of town for fresh hormone free milk.

I stopped here because of the very unusual name on the front door. I tasted the homemade ice cream and that did it for me!! This is among the best ice cream I have ever tasted. It is expensive and worth every penny. If ice cream is your thing, this is Mecca. It is sweet and delicious and luscious and... More

How sad that the owner doesn't understand that if people are going to fork out big money for ice cream they want to be sure they might like to try a few of the unique flavors. He doesn't do that. He stands behind the counter not smiling and acts like the soup nazi from Seinfeld. "NO TASTE FOR YOU!" Do... More

We have been eating here since it opened. Every visit to Wilmy includes a trip here for yummy ice cream. Great flavors and a very friendly owner too!
