“Good Michigan ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I wish they sold Moomers down state. It is great ice cream and wonderful innovative flavors. A little pricey but worth it.

“Not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I read that this was one of the best ice cream spots in the US, and since our road trip was taking us through Traverse City, I decided that we had to stop in for some ice cream. I had an apple pie type of flavor, while my sister had a cookies and cream. While the ice cream itself was good, I didn't feel that it was much better than what you could get at a grocery store. In summary, if you want ice cream, it's as good as anywhere else to stop, but don't make a special trip thinking you're going to be getting something truly fantastic.

“Lines, excited (noisy) kids and good ice cream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

There's no question that their ice cream is very good and their selection of flavors and sizes is great. The location overlooking the dairy farm makes it a special place and one everyone should try at least once. But...we aren't big on lines and we encountered a line out the door giving us plenty of time to read the signs listing the flavors, the hard copy menu they had available and our text messages and emails. The outdoor seating is really quite nice with plenty of places to sit, but the steps down to the field where the cows are is a little kid magnet and they don't travel very quietly. Nothing wrong with that unless you are with people you'd like to be able to talk to or are craving some peace and quiet. Finally, my wife and I agreed the ice cream was good, but that we've had far better ice cream for a lot less money. Still, all said, worth at least one visit.

“We go here all the time - BEST ice cream ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We love this place and visit as soon as they open in the spring frequently. It is truly the best hand dipped ice cream around--I love their sea salt caramel. The best flavor ever but my husband is attempting to work through most all of their flavors and has yet to find one that he doesn't like. Their signature Cherries Moobilee is excellent. My daughter loves their cupcake flavor (especially if you have kiddos). We love this place - make the effort and GET OVER HERE to try some of the best ice cream around. They were even voted as one of the best ever on Good Morning America last year.

“not that good!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

we heard so much about this place and how creamy the ice cream was
but after 5 visits we cannot give it a great review
we love high quality ice cream only and after five visits we are being very fair.
it is expensive too and that is not a problem if it is great ice cream
we tried it again last week and still feel it is over rated
