Great Ice Cream

I stopped in for ice cream and a sandwich (in that order). The sandwich was very good, but the Pecan Pie Ice Cream was about the best ice cream I've ever had!

We ran in to grab some sandwiches for our drive home after being told another place could not accommodate us within a reasonable amount of time. We only had a couple people in front of us to place our order to go and literally watched as the chef prepared our food. We were in and out within 10 minutes. The... More

The food is all made right there in house- breads, deserts, ice cream and more. The inside of Clear River Bakery-Deli was friendly and inviting. Old interesting metal signs on the wall, 50's-60's music, and Grease showing on the big screen TV. Booth type seating, like a diner, quite fun. You order at the counter and find yourself a booth....

Wife and I just wanted sandwiches for dinner. I had the Chicken Salad and wife had Pimento Cheese. The Chicken Salad was good but I've had better. My wife thought the Pimento Cheese was very good. The homemade bread was very good but we thought cut to thick. The Parmesan Potato Chips were excellent. Service was quick and friendly. We... More

I usually prefer a baked goody but decided on ice cream this time. My husband got the Mexican vanilla and I got the peanut butter chocolate. This was the BEST ice cream we've ever had! Thick creamy texture, not overly sweet, perfect flavoring. We will make the hour and a half drive again just for this!

I always ask locals where to go before making a decision on whether or not to go there, because who better to ask than the people who live in that town, right? This was recommended by several of the local people, and what a great suggestion We came on a Friday afternoon. Tabitha helped us and knew right away that... More

We have visited before and had the ice cream. This visit was for the shakes. It says something about a business centering on ice cream and shakes that it was packed wall to wall when it was in the forties outside. We had the chocolate and salted caramel shakes for $10 total. They were not huge, but not small either.... More

Their array of ice creams and baked goods had me drooling, but the muffaletta sandwich was pretty disappointing. However, a Fredericksburg local had highly recommended the place, so maybe it is worth another try. But definitely worth a stop for the ice cream, which was decently priced. I got two medium scoops for $3.50.

There were four different chocolate ice cream choices I was interested in. When I asked the woman which one was the most popular I got a shrug of her shoulders. From that point, I watched her reach into one of the ice cream tubs and grab something out with her fingers...fingers that had just handled money, put a sample of... More
