A must go to because you can get and try fire-weed ice cream, and lots of different kinds of berry ice cream too. Nothing like this ice cream anywhere in the lower 48.

The Ice Cream Shop has a great selection of good ice cream and sherbets, in portion sizes for all ages, and good espresso coffee too. Very friendly atmosphere and very accommodating staff.

I tried the fireweed-and-honey cream, while my family stuck to more typical options. We all agreed that the ice cream was delicious, and the servers could not have been nicer. If you get the munchies between Seward and Anchorage, this is the place to stop.

Our family stopped in this ice cream shop after hiking the Winner Creek Trail. Yes, ice-cream was $3.50 per scoop, but we noticed that is about the price of any other ice cream shop in the places we traveled during our stay in AK. The ice cream was great. My favorite was the "Moosetracks" flavor. My husband and daughter enjoyed... More

This is the only icecream shop in this area. The icecream was good if not great. It is a family run business and they've got some unique flavors. I had chocolate scoop and it was OK.

There was a lively afternoon atmosphere when we arrived at the ice cream shop, and it was just an enjoyable summer experience to stop by. There were delicious looking flavors including Alaskan themed flavors like fireweed and honey and Alaskan wildberry.

We love stopping for ice cream at the Ice Cream Shop. We really like the Maui Waui ice cream. It is like sherbert. Yum!

The ice cream is hand made and like you will not find anywhere else. They have flavors for Alaska. They make the best shakes. Took the grandkids here for the first time and they loved it. When we have had visitors from the lower 48, we always stop here. It is also a great place for a rest stop on... More

The Polar Bear & Moose Tracks ice cream were delicious. The Cappuccino was also very good. The girls behind the counter were super fast, courteous and encouraged you to try any flavor before deciding. Prices are steep, but then again you get what you pay for, it is locally made ice cream.
