We stopped in for ice cream and milk shakes. The place was hot, crowded and expensive. Not a great place to cool off on a hot day and hardly any seating, but we were treated to a view of the drawbridge opening.

Located right at the drawbridge, this ice cream parlor has taken traditional flavors and added fun twists. The mint chip has Oreos blended in, so yummy and creamy! A must for all ages!!

Terrific ice cream made right on the premises...we split a triple scoop bowl of Oreo Cookie and sat on the side deck to take in the views of the Mystic River and the drawbridge...great place...

You have tons of flavors to choose from and if you are lactose-intolerant, they also offer sorbets. If you really get hungry, they have also a deli side where they have salads, soups or wraps, along with coffees or tees. Staff is friendly and pricing is pretty reasonable.

While the ice cream place was not open while I was in Mystic, I absolutely loved the location and took a photo of the building from the drawbridge. I would love to hang out here on a summer afternoon, enjoying an ice cream with the incredible view of the drawbridge going up and down and ships and sailboats parading up... More

My family and I stopped in before leaving Mystic to try some ice cream knowing it is a popular place to go. The ice cream was really good and I had. Peanut butter bar which was amazing especially for the price. The staff is friendly and it is definitely worth stopping in.

After an evening on the water and eating lobster, nothing tastes better than a couple scoops of ice cream on a fresh waffle cone. I got the lemon custard (two thumbs up) and the Chocolate with salty pretzels (also two thumbs up). Enjoy your ice cream as the historic bridge opens for a passing boat. It's Mystic at its best....

This ice cream stand is with a supreme location. My wife ordered peach, which was reasonably priced as well as extremely delicious! I would recommend getting icecream and watching the bridge.

Had the cookies and cream, cookie dough and chocolate. All very good, but was a little pricey and very crowded.

We ate across the water eyeing the ice cream shop all dinner. Afterwards we walked across the drawbridge and stood in a long but happy and quick moving line. So one seemed to mind the wait and when we got the ice cream I could see why. Hope to go back one day...

Thank Culinary-widow
