Have you seen the cow? If the answer is yes, you've probably enjoyed what we call "Handmade Excitement". Established in 2004, the concept was to provide our customers with a new handmade ice cream experience with every visit. Our atmosphere brings back or establishes new memories for everyone that walks through the door. You will find an enthusiastic staff of well-trained employees. All of our ice cream is made on the premises using only the finest ingredients with most of the flavors being all natural. We offer over 200 flavors of ice cream from our own recipes, some of which you will find nowhere else. There are 42 flavors displayed which are rotated on a daily basis. We specialize in making Banana Splits, Sundaes, milkshakes, frozen coffee and fruit drinks.Anyone can sell ice cream and desserts but at Brennan's Big Chill we sell "Handmade Excitement" Open from Groundhogs Day (Feb.2) To just before Thanksgiving

Loved it!

The BEST homemade ice cream and so many choices! Not cheap, but well worth it. Flavors change often, check their facebook page for recent new arrivals.

We heard about this place being good. We drove to it and realized we had gotten there late (10 minutes from closing ). The staff was so friendly. We took our time ordering. We were amazed at the taste and quality of the ice cream. When I asked if they made it they said yes it's made here daily. I... More

Delicious, homemade ice cream at a fair price! So much more than the wimpy, watery and too small items at other local ice cream shops. Generous portions of extraordinary flavor. Brennan's Big Chill is hidden on a side street but well worth looking for!

My children & I have made multiple visits and while the selections are tasty, we've had some discouraging experiences with undersized portions and gruff cashier /counter help. The place is sparkling and pleasant, but we find better value and happier experiences elsewhere.

The flavors here are always changing, but of course they always have the typical ice cream flavors i.e. chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, etc. The ice cream is homemade and the owners are very nice, hardworking people. Staff is always so friendly. Nice chill (literally) atmosphere for the hot summer days... or whenever the mood for ice cream strikes. They also have... More

Use real Oreos in your ice cream cake not fake ones and be nicer to your customers. Other wise they had a nice facility and good ice cream.

Came here after Rosie Marie's restaurant for dessert. Nice selection of good ice creams on par with Ben & Jerry's. Seating on the inside only. Personable staff that kept the place open past closing. Highly recommend.
