“A regular stop for us on lakewalk days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We almost always stop here for ice cream when we're walking the lakewalk. It's a bit expensive, but a fun treat that my daughter loves, and is always looking forward to.

“Good ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The building is so unique. It's an old industrial building , but it is so tiny. There was always a crowd around. But the wait was worth it. The ice cream is so great.

“Heavenly Dark Chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is the best ice cream we have ever tasted--
The Dark chocolate is like none other. Great place to end up
after a lake walk or start off a lake walk. Tremendous view to savor a
cone or a malt by!!

“I've been wanting to try this place it seems like forever!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Our last trip to Duluth this summer I made it a point to stop by and try one of their famous malts.
It was good but nothing to make me want to go back there again...sorry folks but there are other ice cream options in Duluth.
How about Bridgeman's over the hill?

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The previous reviewer was right on point! Though you have a lot of options to personalize your malt, there was too much malt powder, service was very slow and the cost was way too pricey! Cash only else you have to purchase a gift card at the store next door. The only good part was the view of Lake Superior!
