Udder Choice

The Udder Choice is good for breakfast or lunch or sandwiches. Nice variety and good ice cream. Located in Northern Lancaster County, stop in when in the area.

We just love this family friendly restaurant and ice cream shop. The sandwiches and soups (many varieties) are sure to please and the ice cream is delicious! Also, the extensive collection of antique ice cream scoops is fascinating!

Great place for a quick lunch featuring homemade soups and sandwiches and awesome homemade ice cream. Choice of flavors will boggle your mind! Good reason to make return trips. Friendly and fast service. Living close by is NOT good if you want to drop inches!!

They have great homemade ice cream! Fast service and very nice decor. All kinds of old signs and a glass case full of different ice cream scoopers. I've been told they make all their food from scratch but never have tried anything other than ice cream.

We stopped here because the parking lot was always full. We had breakfast and a light dinner and ice cream twice. The soups are homemade and delicious. We had the lobster crab bisque and a butternut squash soup. The hamburgers we had were hand made patties and the beef was very fresh. And to top it all off the ice... More

This place is great, the ice cream was so tasty. My wife had the lobster bisque and said it was the best she's had. Friendly and very comfortable. We will be back again.

My husband and I were in the area on Sat, and stopped in for breakfast. The parking lot was full...had to cruise around a bit for a spot. The place is cute, decorated with old ice cream signs and scoops. We were seated quickly. Our waitress was not all that friendly, but then we found out she was not feeling... More

The menu is a sandwich menu. They also have homemade soups. Sandwiches are good, but nothing really special. I think most people go here for the ice cream and milkshakes.

I have been coming here for years for my milkshake fix, (no wonder I cant shed this last 10lbs, LOL) They do have other food but honestly who cares when they are serving the best milkshakes on the planet, and yes, its in the negatives at times and I am still heading here for my milkshake. ;-)
