All Scream for Ice Cream!

Right on the square,Beth Marie's serves ice cream,cake and samwiches. I drop in every time I'm in town.my wife likes the banana splits and I go for a cone. A nice refreshing break from the Texas sun.It is a bit pricey but worth it. Stop in,get a cone,you won't regret it.

Imagine walking into Beth Marie's and walking back in time. The strong sent of homemade waffle cone is in the air and the black and white checkered floor is beneath you as you approach the hand written chalk board with all of the specials of the day. The long line begins to form next to the numerous homemade ice cream... More

Ice cream selections and taste are excellent. Long lines, but they move you you through at a good pace. Little on the expensive side for the serving sizes.

The ice cream and service are great, however items like the rootbeer float are expensive for the little amount you get.

The quality of the ice cream is great here, but they really need to clean the tables and counters a bit more. Both locations need a good deep cleaning and a facelift. Part of this is because they are so popular that they get a lot of traffic, but they need to close for a few days and spruce the... More

I was taken on an emotional roller coaster ride, the second I tasted Beth Marie's Vanilla Ice Cream. I don't know how they are able to mimic the homemade flavor, texture, and consistency, but it works. The ambiance is fabulous, but the proof is in the product. My friends all experienced, the same sensations, with different flavors. Hey, Beth Marie,... More

Excellent feature of the Denton square. Must stop in for a cone, eve if just a small one. Ice cream is great with many unusual and usual flavors to choose from-- can't go wrong with the courthouse pecan.

The biggest drawback in eating here is the parking. Trying to park anywhere near this place or the square can be a horrible experience. But once you do get parked and inside, you will be greeted with sincere pride in their ice creams. These people are so nice and their ice creams are decent. Not the greatest but worthy to... More
