“Just another ice cream shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Nothing special about this ice cream shop. The ice cream was average in taste and the variety of flavors was not unusual.

I am sorry you felt this way. But a little review of your review for others so yours does not discourage future customers. We serve Blue Bell Ice Cream so if you have ever had it you will know how good it is, and also you will know that we are not just 'another' ice cream shop. The ice cream itself is rich in flavor, and packed with lots of goodies depending on which one you decide to go with. Throughout the year we offer different flavors to change it up a little bit. I am not sure what ice cream flavor you had when you visited us. If you have a problem with the ice cream contact blue bell, we do not make the ice cream, But considering that we have repeat customers from towns that cannot get the companies ice cream I would have to disagree with your comments.

“Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Millers Homemade ice cream is the best. I love the Black walnut. Be sure to purchase a Brown County visitors card to get discounts.

“Lunch here too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Was recommended to me by salesperson in another store. I was going to choose one of the Mexican lunch offerings, but the waitress cheerily suggested the special of chicken salad with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds served on lettuce with tomato slices -- or a bun if you'd rather. It was as good as it sounded. I did get a scoop of peach ice cream afterward and it cost almost as much as the salad. Delicious though. There are shaded tables and benches just outside the cottage for eating on site. I recommend them for lunch as well as ice cream.

“Lost my heart to the Butter Pecan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

The ice cream was homemade and had such a great taste. Had it in a waffle cone which was fresh and crunchy. All and all it was delicious and a good memory>

Thank you for your review about us, since we recently switched to Blue Bell Ice Cream (originally from Texas) our ice cream has been much better. The flavors are packed with goodies, and less air than other ice creams on the market which makes the quality better than anything else available! We appreciate your business and hope to see you again in the future!
