Get the tortilla soup before ice cream

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

Funky throw-back soda fountain with Bluebell ice cream, lots of home-made pastries to choose from and better-than Starbucks coffee. But I like it best for a quick lunch stop: home made soups and chili and fresh-made sandwiches while the movie Grease plays on the screen. Can get crowded some times but the high school kids who work there will take... More

This is a step back in time. One of the most popular spots on Main St. The ice cream selection is vast and the bakery items were mouth watering. You can pick out 2 cookies and then some ice cream and have a tasty ice cream sandwich made. The kind server even offered to cut our ice cream sandwich in... More

Delicious ice cream, wish we were hungry enough to have tried some of their deli items! My daughter got the raspberry sorbet and the mango sorbet, which I tried and I think it was tastier than the ice cream, healthier also. I got the cherry vanilla ice cream and the peach strawberry pecan ice cream, which happened to be phenomenal!... More

This place stays packed as it's really one of the only ice cream places around Main Street in Fredricksburg. Went with husband and 3 kids - asked for smaller kids scoops for the kids and we paid $35 and change for 5 cones...yes, that's not a typo! The ice cream WAS very good but next time, we're going to H-E-B... More

Stopped in for an ice cream treat. Tried the frozen hot chocolate and one son had salted caramel ice cream. Great treats and a touch of nostalgia. Worth the stop!
