Honestly, I never ever thought that ice cream or frozen soft serve yogurt, or a malt could be tasteless-but this place had them all. We just wanted a quick ice cream to satisfy our tastebuds after a quick lunch while traveling. Well, this place seemed to be the only one around and was also mentioned to us from our server... More

Most people don't know that they serve a lunch that has a limited selection but all are good. Hot dogs, Pulled Pork and a few other things. Friendly, fast, crowded and GOOD.

This is a small and friendly ice cream store. They work hard to help customers quickly. This is not always the case when ordering ice cream elsewhere. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do not offer anything out of the ordinary.

Good prices. Good treats. Nice owners. Clean eating areas. (usually, unless the little ones trash it!) I miss it so in the winter. Hurry back. I need a Turtle Sundae!!

We have lived in the area for years and have always loved their ice cream. Great taste and large portions at a great price. This past year my husband became acquainted with the owner through his job. As a germ freak I was very pleased to hear that she is quite meticulous in her cleaning practices and requirements for Sweet... More

your average small town ice cream shack. but that's not a bad thing. good menu variety, including low fat and carb options. inexpensive. sometimes the service is slow and inattentive, and on rare occasion outright rude. but hey, it's an ice cream cone.
