I ordered a small peanut butter crunch with butterfinger in a wafer cone, and was surprised at the size of it - they gave a LOT of ice cream for a small. I enjoy ice cream that has a lot of "stuff" in it ti chew on, and this was great - every bite had crunch, and it lived up... More

They have a great selection of ice creams and they would let you try any flavor you like. I wish it was a sit in place but unfortunately it's not. The smell of the freshly made waffle cones was to die for. Overall the ice cream was great and full of flavor. Enjoy!

Date of Visit: Often Pros: Great ice cream, good service Cons: ? I have been wanting to review Brusters for a long time – this is our favorite ice cream shop (the franchise, not the location). I have eaten at three different locations (2 in TN, 1 in FL) and they are all great. They have a lot of flavor... More

I have frequented Bruster's in Rocky Hill for several summers. It used to be delightful. My recent visits this year were both disappointing. On 7/28 I ordered a cone. The ice cream was very soft and a small scoop, just a slight rise above the top edge of the cone. Today 8/1 I ordered a sundae with 2 different flavors... More

Absolutely the best ice cream I've ever had. Made fresh daily. Huge variety of flavors. My personal favorite is Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Banana Split's are so big you should really share one.

We had a large ice cream cake made for a special event. We were amazed at the beautiful decorating and how wonderful the cake and icecream stayed together. The manager, Amy, at the Rocky Hill location in Knoxville Tn. was so pleasant to work with, we really appreciated her time in helping us decide what to get for our event.... More

The family and I ate here on Tuesday, July 10, 2012. There were 7 of us and our total bill was around $28. I got a double scoop of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and it was simply amazing. My wife got the Raspberry Chocolate Chunk and the chocolate chunks were huge, nothing like the "chunks" in most store-bought ice cream.... More
