We had a large lunch that day so while having dinner with family we decided to just share a caesar salad and then a large sundae. The salad had almost no flavor. We got a three scoop sundae. The scoops were huge, but the main taste was cold. Two of the flavors were with nuts....couldn't taste any and one was... More

I LOVE THE SMELL OF ICECREAM! The smell alone does it for me. My kids loved eating mac and cheese and burgers there. I love the smell of the restaurant and the ice cream is fabulous!

We went here for a late night ice cream after my son in law saw it on Man Versus Food. Personally I don't go for the "how much can you eat" culture, but the quality of the ice creams is unquestionably excellent here. All portions are good, so order wisely. There are signature dishes, and all looked great. We went... More

Having seen this ice cream shop on man vs food, we have to make a visit to the creamery since we were staying locally on our trip from the uk. We were certainly not disappointed!! We showed up and the restaurant was full. We were told 15 mins wait, but we were given a table in 10. Water was brought... More

Great ice cream treats in giant portions. Sundaes are huge; I recommend sharing if you are not absolutely starving.

This place has amazing ice cream dishes. "The kitchen sink" is an 8 scoop (and when I say scoop, it's more like a 3 person serving about the size of a softball), 8 topping enormous sundae. It's big enough for a large family to share and still not finish.... There is a challenge if you can finish the whole thing... More

The ice cream is delicious and even the smallest scoop will fill you up. If you have a large group, be sure to ask for "the kitchen sink". It's unbelievable!
