Why this shows up as a restaurant, I don't know. It's an awesome ice cream place, but you're not coming here to dine. That said, it's a huge part of the Penn State experience, and as such, it wonderful!

Does this place get a bad review? It is a MUST stop when visiting campus. The creamery is a PSU staple and the ice cream never disappoints. One size as a selection and it's pretty much a meal. Love the new location and there are plenty of options if you don't want ice cream. Take it to go and share... More

It was so cold out that we didn't feel like ice cream at the time. So happy that we could take it home. We were able to buy a few 1/2 gallons. They had very reasonably priced coolers (less than $5) and dry ice. When we arrived home 4 hours later, the ice cream was as cold as when we... More

I was at Penn State for a meeting but had to stop in for ice cream even though it is freezing outside. This new creamery is nice and big and the ice cream is as good as I remember it from 25 years ago!

It was 18 degrees when we got to the creamery. But having missed it on the last visit, I didn't care. Parking is free for 30 minutes in the parking garage next door. The ice cream was awesome and my cone was piled high. Great place to go!

The ice cream is excellent!! They have many unique and delicious flavors. The staff are friendly and efficient. They will also pack your ice cream with dry ice for the trip home. This is a must do.

Death by Chocolate is to die for! But every flavor is fresh and delicious. We usually skip the line going out the door, take our Creamery ice cream bag and get the dry ice to cart several cartons of this pure deliciousness a few hours to our home. There is a separate check out for those just buying to go,... More

It doesn't matter what time we are leaving State College 10AM or 5PM we can never leave without a stop at the Creamery. Sometimes we eat it there but sometimes we bring it home in the freezer bags provided by the Creamery.

I love ice cream and try different brands of it wherever I go. In my opinion, this is the best ice-cream I have ever eaten, bar none! And, of course, my favorite is Peachy Paterno.

Really good, creamy ice cream. Huge portion makes the price reasonable and probably enough to be considered a meal for some. I highly recommend the coconut chip.
