I took my son here after a Penn State football game. It's definitely not the best time to go to avoid a line but it was either wait in traffic or go get ice cream:) I had heard of this place many times but this was our first visit. The ice cream was delicious. They have a nice selection of... More

Awesome ice cream, great staff. Right on campus. Every time I come to Penn State I make sure to visit the Creamery.

The new Berkey Creamery is such a can of worms to review! The design of the space is confusing with no logical flow of traffick from one side of the room to the other. The majority of the space is made up of walk-up refrigerators/freezers that peddle (supposedly) made-in-house ice cream, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products. The ice cream... More

Good ice-cream and yogurt, a symbol of Penn State! It is a must-visit for anyone visiting the university.

This is our family tradition to visit the creamery every time we are in town. If you never experienced the creamery, I encourage you to hit this location once while you are in town. You will not be disappointed.

We visited on a side trip in the area. The facility is large with a lot of staff. Orders are processed quickly. The prices seem a little high but are matched by very large portions. Parking is easiest in the parkade around the corner.

Our daughter goes to Penn State University and the ice cream at the Berkey Creamery is great. Portions are huge (two people can share). You cannot mix flavors. Usually there is a line out the door but bring a cooler and take some ice cream home for another day.

When we told all our friends we were going to State College they all said do not miss this treat and boy were they right. Great products and fast service.

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
