This place has a wide variety of ice-cream choices. My buddy got the deep dish apple pie two scoops in a waffle come. I grabbed the caramel apple crunch. Delicious! No indoor seating but a few out door benches and a drive thru.

The ice cream taste, consistency, and selection are amazing and not the reason I gave it a 3. The price is a little higher than what I feel is reasonable. Compared to other places you will definitely be spending more for the quantity you receive. The drive through is S-L-O-W.... Like 15 to 20 min slow when I was there... More

The turtle sundae is wonderful. The pecans are roasted and the hot caramel and hot fudge are delicious. Very well made and yummy!

Bruster's makes their ice cream on site, and it is very, very good. I would still put Graeter's above it, but some of the flavors are just fantastic. The prices are a little steep, which prevents us from visiting frequently, but if you like raspberry, you have got to try their raspberry flavors!

Stopped here while passing through from Lake Cumberland State Park to go home to Indiana. Best ice cream I have had in a long time!
