Friendly servers with delicious ice cream! The downside is that it's in a bit of a strip mall, so there's not a great place to sit and enjoy the ice cream. However, as long as you're with good friends, the benches outside are more than sufficient!

While it was an average of 40 degrees for the majority of our trip, we made a point of stopping for ice cream after a local recommended this place. The fireberry ice cream was delicious - try it for yourself & see!

We stopped by on our way back to Anchorage. Remarkably nice icecreams served in crispy cones.... YMMV

Firewood ice cream, the best! Good service for a small venue! Better during the spring & summer seasons!

No reason to complain when visiting this ice cream parlor that is found approximately 40 minutes south of Anchorage. A nice stop for a tasty treat. Courteous and clean with decent sizes of ice cream - yum.

I've been going to this ice cream shop for years. THE best fireweed ice cream I've tasted. Also, the best ginger and cinnamon ice cream! This is a little shop in a tiny strip mall on the New Seward Highway. It is at the entrance road into Girdwood AK. The parking is always full and can be difficult to navigate... More

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.
