This place was good, everyone liked their ice cream and sundaes but they were not out of this world. Only one worker in fall Friday night, line was a bit long and slow. Prices were steep but not crazy. If looking for nice ice cream this place fits the bill but don't expect nirvana.

After a disappointing pizza dinner, my Wife and I visited Bruster's. It was a little confusing on what flavors were available because their website has a huge list but the list on the window was much smaller and did not say 'Today's Flavors'. A much larger list was on a wall inside. Either way, the ice cream was excellent and... More

A great assortment of delicious ice cream. It it quite spendy, so expect to pay a bit for the tastiness.

Ice cream is great, but both times we visited they only had one person working. They could sell 10X more ice cream if they staffed appropriately.

Just ok...prices were fine and I was so excited to come here based on positive reviews. I love ice cream, especially peanut butter ice cream. But the chocolate peanut butter buckeye ice cream was a let down. The buckeyes were good but the ice cream wasn't great and left an after taste. Free kids cone was nice and my daughter... More

Wife had a craving for ice cream and didn't want to go alone. Best Ice Cream in town! Always lots of great options, never a bad flavor! Tuesday is "double punch card". Friendly staff.

The ice cream is outstanding. In fact, we went back to the window (no inside dining) to get more, but the young man was preoccupied with a screen of some sort in the back and could not be bothered by responding to us. Needless to say, we did not get seconds. Additionally, when we first arrived, we asked him about... More

While I could rave about the quality of the ice cream - which is exceptional - I really want to talk about the caliber of the young man working this large take out restaurant by himself. We arrived around 8PM on a Thursday night. There was a line of about 25 people. The gent working the counter calmly took orders... More

We went on vacation last month and no one was disappointed! Lots and lots of flavors to choose from. Prices were good and portions large! Will be back next year!

Huge selection of flavors, really helpful staff, a bit high priced but quite good ice cream. Bring your own banana and get a banana split half priced!
