Good ice cream, generous servIng. Chocolate fascination (?) is our favorite.... This place is always a hit - for both young and old... We usually dine at nearby Burma superstar or Tomatina - then walk to Tucker's for ice cream dessert. A couple can share a scoop if you are on calorie watch :-)

Ice cream is good but too expensive. The managers have gotten a little nicer over time - they used to be downright unfriendly. They used to have an amazing cake artist but he's not there anymore. But all told, it adds a lot to Park Street to have family oriented places like this around.

Because we're a local place with unique ice cream, we think our flavors are worth every penny. I'm sorry that in the past you haven't always been treated with the kindness you deserve, but I'm glad you can see how we're improving. We love having families come by to enjoy our ice cream, so I hope you and your family... More

Been getting ice cream at Tucker's for over 20 years and it's always smooth, creamy and very tasty. The best waffle cones anywhere. If you see a line, don't worry, it's worth the short wait. My favorite is raspberry marble but you'll find your own!

Everyone does find their own favorite, but I must say raspberry marble is a good one! And a waffle cone only improves it. Thanks for coming to see us for your ice cream fix for over twenty years! Here's to twenty more, Kate, Owner More

Marvelous home made ice creams...Dave even creates custom flavors! Kate & Dave are so generous in giving back to the greater Alameda community supporting them is a bonus as the food is spectacular. Not just great ice cream, but also, fudge, cakes and more. Quaint setting with ample seating...you can always takeaway as well.

Love this ice cream shop, with its old-fashioned feel, great flavors and many selections. Sit inside at one of their tables and people-watch.

After walking the beach and doing the usual tourist activities, we decided to get a treat in between lunch and supper. Tucker's rocked it, yummy ice cream

This place serves up good old fashion ice cream with simple sundaes and a whole lot of flavor. The shop in newly remolded but still keep the over tones of the good old days of small town America.
