1 for the money, 2 for the show, get your ice cream and go cat go!

Mexican Vanilla ice cream a national ice cream competition winner. One of the best bakeries in town in an old style drug store atmosphere.

Clear River provides a good combination of bakery, sandwich shop, and ice cream parlor. Everything is prepared on premises and is truly flavorful. I have never not liked what I selected. The appearance and downstairs seating looks like a 20's or 30's ice cream shop, so the atmosphere is as welcoming as the staff.

CR is the best for lunch or light dinner fare. Yummy baked goods and AMAZING ice cream! Try the Mexican Vanilla or the Peach Amaretto! One our very favorite "go to" places. Never disappointed. Also, the chicken salad is to die for!

On our way through Fredricksburg last week we used TripAdvisor (mobile) to find a sandwich shop for a lil' bit of lunch. So we located on downtown, Clear River Sandwiches, bakery items, Ice Cream! But you say, "Big Mike, we can't find any parking..." The Secret to Parking is that it is behind the restaurant. Street level is a nightmare.... More

This place is simple great. It is a fun 50's atmosphere with delicious ice cream and much more. There are sandwiches and cookies and something for everyone. Do not pass by this place and not stop. Even if you are not hungry. It is such a fun shop to sit in and pass time. Do try to be there for... More

Ice cream is great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We have always enjoyed going to Clear River for ice cream. As far as price goes you are on main street prices are very comparable to anywhere else.

I got a scoop of Mexican Vanilla and a scoop of Peach/Pecan/Amaretto. While it was delicious, it wasn't Amy's Mexican Vanilla good. :) The atmosphere inside was really cute though, and the Peach/Pecan/Amaretto was quite delicious.

We stopped by nearly every evening on our last trip. The peach sherbet was so good I had it each time! Very homemade taste. Only downfalls to this place is it is a little pricey & could be cleaner.
