“Get the S'Mores Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I love The GOlden Guernsey. I stopped in there two weeks ago with my boyfriend and tried the S'Mores ice cream. Holy moly it was delicious! The best graham cracker ice cream base I've ever had. I had dreams about it for days after. Can't wait to go back.

“Great ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Stopped by here after dinner, and was pleasantly surprised. This place has the old school ice cream parlor feel to it - smooth, rich ice cream and friendly service. Had something with cookie dough, fudge, M&Ms in vanilla ice cream, excellent! And $2 for a small dish?!

“Great ice cream flavored!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Large selection of favors and options. Clearly popular with the locals. Perfect after a long drive before hitting hotel for the night.

“Great Place - Great People - Big Heart!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Last weekend our youth group had a city/town-wide road rally event with a Batman theme. I was Mr. Freeze and to get a clue to get to the next checkpoint, teams had to drink a slushie without brain freeze - it was pretty cool to see how fast some of the kids could down one of those without the dreaded effects! One team member asked, "How will you even know if we have brain freeze?"...I said, "you cannot mask the effects of brain freeze, believe me!" Well, hardly anyone suffered, so that was a good thing!

The teams were slow in getting to the Golden Guernsey and the evening was coming to a close. Typically, during non-winter hours, closing time is 9:30. They stayed open until 10:30 and better yet, they donated all the slushies that the team drank! Kudos and many thanks!

We will return - not only for the wonderful frozen goodies, but because these folks really care about the community they live and work in!!

“It is WAY more than ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

While the GG does offer lots of flavors of ice cream and lots of opportunities to have them make it "your way", its more than ice cream. They offer several sandwiches, soups and burgers, and I think they may even offer salads. Their lunch special is a great deal............its different every day and includes a sandwich with soup and a drink for a VERY reasonable price. I was disappointed when they did not take credit or debit cards two years ago when I was there with family. None of us had enough cash to pay for our order, but they took a personal check because they recognized me. I love the vintage and antique items they have on display.
