Great Late Night Ice Cream

Since our national ice cream is kaput for the time being here in Texas...we hit Chocalate Bar on Alabama late Friday night. So cool that the place is open late. Took a group of teenagers since it was my daughter's birthday. Always a fun place. I usually get the root beer float ice cream. This time... read more

Indulge in all things chocolate... candy, cakes, ice creams... There are small portions and HUGE portions in all of their offerings - something for everyone. From 2 to 102, this is a magically delicious place to stop (and a great place to hold a girls party or shower).

You can find everything in this place! from human treats to dog treats, brownies, gifts, drinks, you name it. I got the chunky brownie for myself, and it's huge. It's def. meant for sharing. I think it was hands down the best brownie I had ever had.

This is my go to place for chocolate desserts. Slowly working my way through the menu, and haven't had anything less then stellar yet. It can be pricey, but oh my it's work it. Can't wait for my birthday month to go and pick out a treat or two. Oh heck, it's been a month or so, time to visit.

This was a last minute treat on our way out of town. This location had just opened for the day. We browsed the over priced delicacies and ended up choosing some small gifts for those back home and a couple of treats each for after lunch. $20 later we each had one or two bites to show for it. We... More

I took a friend there this past weekend that had never been. We grabbed some ice cream and a huge piece of chocolate cake to go. Both were excellent and the staff was amazing!

After dinner at a traditional restaurant, our son who lives in Houston, recommended we have dessert at The Chocolate Bar. Great decision - no disappointments... if you enjoy chocolate desserts and/or old fashion ice cream you don't want to miss stopping in and checking this place out. The desserts are wonderful ... lots of unique options to enjoy on-site or... More

This place is bad for your health as the ice cream is so good you will keep eating it even though your brain says you ought to stop. We didn't try any other deserts but looking at what other people had on their tables they looked incredibly yummy too and the portions were humongous. Unless you have incredible self control...
