Have never been disappointed here. Sandwiches are always huge, very well made and delicious. Plus, the many flavors of ice cream are the perfect way to finish your meal. We stop in every time we're in town.

There's a reason this place is busy year round: excellent ice cream, great service, and reasonable prices. A large variety of freshly made ice cream flavors, soups, sandwiches, salads, and baked goods ensure that there is something for everyone. When ordering ice cream you decide how much or how little goes on the cone; you pay by weight, not #... More

We stopped in right before closing time. The staff were very obliging. They did not rush us, but it did take a bit to get our sundaes. It was worth the wait. Their ice cream is so creamy & tasty. Hubby did not care for his Dutch chocolate, but it was a matter of not enough chocolate for his taste.... More

YUM on both accounts: tortilla soup was spicy good. My friend had a muffaleta sandwich that he enjoyed. We had cherry-vanilla and peanut-butter flavors of ice cream that were both delicious.

This is really a good ice cream parlor, it is always busy and line can get long, when it is that long I prefer to pass on and come back later. Service is kind of rude in the rush to get out people fast and keep selling, cashier must keep ringing. Place is a 50s decoration and with all the... More

Clear River Pecan offers predictably delicious sandwiches on home made bread. Select an ice cream for a bit of sweet after your meal. Whole sandwiches are huge - a half will leave you satisfied. It is a choose your bread/meat/cheese/condiments kind of a menu. It is also a great place to pop into for coffee or a soda.

Clear River is a local favorite with great salads, sandwiches & desserts at a reasonable price. Big choice of delicous ice cream, but like most upscale ice cream it is a little expensive. However, the decor is fabulous! A step back in time to the juke box days, lots to look at and admire while you enjoy your lunch. Friendly... More
