Expect to wait in line but well worth the wait. Portions are huge and so many flavors to pick from. We have had ice cream all over the USA and Bruster's is #1 in our book.

You can get so many different ice creams and toppings and concoctions, it's a little overwhelming. The ice cream is fantastic and the servings are big. Nice staff, too.
