The Rock House is a small, friendly ice cream shop that also serves light lunches and desserts. It is an institution in the Palmer Lake/Monument area. Kids, grandkids, families, little league baseball teams, bikers, motorcyclists, you name it, everyone loves the Rock House. They often have lunch and leave room for the tasty and inexpensive ice cream. Try the local... More

Before going to Rock House, check out their creative website! At first, I didn't realize that there were actual links on the site - move your cursor around to get all your questions answered - including old photos and history of the place! The menu is small, but for lunch, do you really need a gourmet meal? The food is... More

This is a MUST stop at ice cream restaurant in the heart of scenic, historic Palmer Lake, CO. The place is awesome...plenty of parking, parking lot well paved, outside seating, inside seating for small & big groups, warm, friendly service, delicious ice cream and food, decent price, and it was cool inside on a hot, summer day!

We had sandwiches for lunch - all were very tasty. Everything is fixed fresh. Of course, we also had ice cream, and it was delicious too! Fun, quaint little place to visit.

If you hunger for ice cream and live in this neck of the woods, this is your only option. Kids love it, but for the adult taste, this ice cream is super sweet, almost cloyingly so. Yes, take the kids here, but if you're an adult, take the longer drive to Josh and John's in Colorado Springs for truly gourmet... More

Nice local place to grab some ice cream - inside and outside tables you can sit and enjoy. Looks like they have a small menu of food too if you are looking for more of a snack

We got a chance to stop at Rock House Ice Cream on our way home from a weekend in the Colorado Springs area. Every time I have been by this place, I've just eaten or it's too crowded. Not so this time! We were able to pull right in and park, and there was room inside to enjoy our treats.... More

The ice cream is nice and tastes very rich. The place has a nice feel to it. They also have gluten free ice cream cone which is special. Normally I'd give it a three but since it caters to gluten free folks it gets four stars.
