Awesome ice cream

Whitey's is definitely worth a stop. We love the selection and the ice cream pies. The malts are amazing with fresh fruit...it's not just for summer!

Ice Cream is great. Sugar Free should be made with Splenda not Sugar Alcohol. The Ice has multiple flavor. I am a Diabetic so my choices are limited. My Wife likes Camo.

We visited Whiteys with family members of the brand name. I'm not a big ice cream person but the product is great - I enjoyed a freshly made ice cream which was so creamy - more creamy than anything I have tasted in Australia. Just a pity I can't bring it back home and retail it - it would put... More

Very clean, great service, big selection; priced a little high. Whitey's offer a rich ice cream in a variety of creative flavor combinations. Offerings include cones, malts, shakes, sundaes, floats, banana splits, and special novelties.

Best best ice cream ever! They have all flavors of ice cream and malts but my favorite will always be the vanilla! Oreo malts, Heath bar, banana split, orange sherbet freeze, butterfingers, turtle.....you get the gist.

I Dnt really think this ice cream is any better that d.q or blue bunny. It's over priced and the items suck. I would go to d.q or Culver's over whitey's any day. Save your money......

Best ice cream shakes EVER! What a popular and well-known local attraction. If you come to the quad-cities, you must go to Whitey's!

You have to try this ice cream! Best anywhere, I think! Lots of unique as well as old favorite flavors. Try the turtle Sunday or a chocolate soda using black raspberry chip ice cream for heaven on earth!

Whitey's Ice Cream is pretty much a staple of the Quad Cities and you would be doing a disservice by not trying it. Especially the specialty/seasonal flavors that are truly unique to Whitey's.
