“Family Fun and yummy ice cream.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Saturday nights at Swirlie's = Family fun. They show free movies on the lawn. While their neighbor Burger King has a cool old car show. There are so many yummy ice cream choices it is hard to decide. I have never been to an outside ice cream place that is so clean. A local gem.

“Swirlies Rules!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

This ice cream stand really brings you back with a retro 50s feel (and taste!). Excellent customer service and a fun atmosphere. Bring your dog too!

“Great soft serve and a free car show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I discovered this place through friends - never would have known about it otherwise. It's a walk-up, soft serve ice cream joint with endless possible topping combinations. It sits on the far end of a parking lot shared by Burger King. The lot fills up with classic cars on the weekends, giving you a reason to walk off some of that ice cream you're eating. Makes for a fun diversion on a summer evening.

“Ice cream, cars, and a movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

This is a popular local soft serve. It has a lot of original flavors, including the fruit swirls that garner the name. Come on a summer Saturday and you can have your cone, walk around the parking lot and check out the hot rods and antique car show and then finish with a movie under the stars.
