Whenever I'm back in town I managed to make the trip to Jilbert's. There really is no ice cream like it for me, its the creamiest ice cream you'll find! And NO ONE makes Mackinaw Island Fudge like Jilbert's (peanut butter, amaretto, or mint!) Stop...More

Out of the main stream of traffic. I've worked in Marquette for nearly 19 years, and didn't know about this location. I won't forget now. Skip the restaurant's dessert, stop here for top quality ice cream. Jilbert's is known throughout the U.P.

This place would be fun for the whole family! There's a giant cow on top of the building, so kids will love it! The ice cream is delicious and and wait staff is very personable!

We waited in line 25 minutes for ice cream during the holiday weekend, but it was so worth it! Delicious and creamy ice cream, lots of choices! Nice outdoor seating area.

Excellent ice cream here! Offers a good selection to choose from as well. Can eat inside or out. Offers other dairy products as well...and other food & items unique to the U.P.

Great ice cream shop but it is attached to an actual dairy production facility. We drove around the entire building until we found the customer entrance. They offer tours of the production facility! Ice Cream was GREAT! No soft-serve though... bummer.
