Brought my family here to try out the ice cream and it was nothing short of greatness. We LOVED it. From the Mexican Hot Chocolate to the Salted Crack Caramel it was straight up delicious, will definitely be back asap for another fix!!!!

I enjoy ice cream in the summer. But the ice cream here is worth a trip in a snowstorm. Seriously..it's that good. The flavors are unique, the ice cream is creamy and satisfying, and the staff is wonderful. So friendly. Crack caramel is my new addiction. It's worth the extra 1/2 hour on the treadmill.

I simply love ice cream and really like to try local cities claim to be the best. There are some cities that I have found which do have outstanding ice cream. I am pleased to say that this is one of them. If in NYC and you can get over to Brooklyn, then this is certain lice cream worth the... More

I'm an ice cream fanatic, and Ample Hills serves up the best in NYC. I'm a sucker for wacky flavors and tons of mix-ins, so this ice cream is right up my alley. Best of all, the staff lets you try as many flavors as you want (and trust me, you'll want to try them all). First-timers must get the... More

Worth every single calorie! I had the salted caramel crack on this trip and it was the best ice cream ive ever had. We tasted the "It came from Gowanus" and it was like an everything or garbage pail didn't care for it. The name alone is off putting. Great upstairs chairs and outside patio to hang out on. Big...

I finally got a chance to check this place out and see what all the hype is about. I couldn't decide between the two most popular items (the Salted Crack Caramel and Ooey Gooey Butter Cake) so I opted for a scoop of each. At $4.75, a small ended up being more than enough. The Salted Crack Caramel struck me... More

Was given a tip to head to Brooklyn for Ample Hills ice cream and we made a detour out of our trip to NYC. What's more, we headed to Gowanus, their new store, which was only their 13th day of opening. The queue? Gigantic, but luckily the staff had us inside on a humid, scorching day, so we could all...

I love ice cream. All kinds of ice cream in all it's variations. I like gelato, sorbet, ices, shaved ice as well as all kinds of flavors- from traditional to "out there." So, I was truly looking forward to sampling Ample Hills; the reviews have been so fabulous. Consequently, it is with great sorrow I can't recommend this new spot... More

Some of the best ice cream I have had. Staff was polite. Was crowded but the line moved. Keep in mind this is not a cheap place to get a snack but even with that I am confident we will be going back. Just sadly not every night.

The honey ice cream was amazing, the texture was so creamy. Butter pecan was full of pecans. There was a marshmallow crunch, salty caramel pretzel. All yummy!
