Homer's has a great selection of many different Ice Cream flavors. We really like them all. Good value, quick service and perfect on a summer day.

I use to live very close to Homer's while growing up. I still make the trip back there for their great ice cream. So I've got about 60 years of that great ice cream. Keep it in my freezer at all times.

This ice cream restaurant has excellent desserts in a multitude of ice cream flavors. Although the scoops were surprisingly small, they were delicious. This place is always crowded, and for good reason.

Ordered the coffee malt, which should have been transcendent. But the malted milk powder was not fully blended into the drink, and I kept getting little, unpleasant globby bits through the straw. I was too far away to come back for a re-mix. My advice...More
