I really enjoyed my outing here. The staff were incredibly polite and helpful. They interacted with both of my children in extremely positive ways. My special needs teenager loved the respect and attention. The shop has an old fashioned fun family feel and there are two separate outdoor areas to enjoy. The ice cream is tasty too. Definitely worth checking... More

This ice cream parlor is an old school type place. from the décor to the location itself. The staff is wonderful and has taken time to get to know my family and the others around. They are good to their customers, and surely Hershey's doesn't disappoint either. The lunch food is amazing, try a Key west Sub or Captain Tony.... More

I've been coming to this parlor for years and the ice cream is always delicious! On my last visit however I noticed how dirty the parlor really is. The decorations and fake plants haven't been dusted in years, the walls by the booths have old ice cream stains running down them, the chairs and walls are dirty and scuffed up,... More

We just had ice cream, but their food looked & sounded delicious! If we are in the area again, we would definitely eat our main meal here. Lots of ice cream choices. Friendly staff.

I believe Hershey's is the ice cream supplier. It SURELY doesn't disappoint! The sandwiches and soups are tasty. It's an older building, but it always seems clean. We have always have had great patient service. They usually offer a nice lunch combo for a great price.

I like the Salem ice cream parlor if for any other reason, because it's hometown comfort. The décor is shabby chic with lots of local flair and an old ice cream shop air. The ice cream itself is good; they use Hershey's, and the unique offerings make it a place worth visiting repeatedly. The regular food items, are quite good... More

Like Leighann B, I agree that this icp has an excellent choice of i.c. flavors .... EVEN IF THEY HAVE ELIMINATED old-fashioned chocolate chip flavor. They also offer very few flavors of no-fat flavors ..... chocolate is one of them that they do offer, however. We have lived in the Roanoke valley for 16 years, and have been coming here... More

We had ice cream and milk shakes but folks there were enjoying burgers and fries. It is an old fashioned kind of restaurant - very family friendly and staff is open and helpful.

They have a great variety of ice cream flavors, sundaes, and shakes. You can get a fresh, delicious combo with sub, soup, drink for a very affordable price plus you can add ice cream! :) Tomato bisque yum!
