This was our nephew's graduation and this ice cream was highly recommended. We saw the line out the door so opted to take it home with us, based on nephew's advice. We were not disappointed. The ice cream was smooth, creamy and delicious. We got the strawberry yogurt, death by chocolate, vanilla, and coffee...took it home with dry ice they... More

I've been eating ice cream from the Creamery since the fall of 1963, and the butter pecan ice cream is still to die for. These days my husband and I drive 90 miles one way (I'm not kidding here) for a stroll on campus and some heavenly Creamery ice cream. BUT on our visit two weeks ago we were stunned... More

Very original names and a wide selection of flavors, but it wasn't any tastier/unique than your average grocery store ice cream.

The best ice cream in Central PA hands down and a fun experience when you are on the campus of Penn State University.

Trust me on this - get thee to the Creamery!!!! Besides ice cream, you can experience the cheese, milk, etc - all from Penn State cows! The cows must be intellectuals, because this stuff is GOOD!

One of the other reviewers stated if you give this place less than 4 stars, you must be delusional. Pretty cool how I can type wearing a straitjacket, huh? Now, my review is based on our overall experience. We're not PSU grads, and we surely don't buy into the cult-like marketing that emanates from every nook and cranny of this... More

If you rate the Creamery less than 5 stars, you may possibly be delusional. There's a reason it's routine to see long lines here - it's simply because you will not find better ice cream anywhere on the face of the earth.

Don't miss going there! There is 30 min free parking nearby. All flavors are great and the bowl is huge. Too bad we cannot mix flavors in one bowl, though...

I was not familiar with the Berkey Creamery before my recent trip to State College and learned of it soon after arriving in town. I visited on a Tuesday afternoon and was really impressed with the history of the creamery, the work they do today, the friendly and efficient staff, and the awesome ice cream! The Creamery is a bit... More

This is a good place to get some ice cream. Some people say it is the best ice cream in the world, but to me, all ice cream is good ice cream! I do recommend getting sprinkles on it though because it shows the true Penn State Spirit! We Are! Penn State!
