Ice cream tasted great. The lines were super long but definitely worth the wait. Waffle cones were fresh and they had a good variety of flavors.

Good ice cream but the service is atrocious. 40 minute wait to handle 3 groups of customers on a Wednesday! Seriously, how long does it take to scoop a damn cone.

This place had a line regardless of what time it was. We did walk up to the window to check it out, but didn’t order since they didn’t have any sugar free options. The flavors they had looked great and the cones/cups that customers were...More

Great, homemade ice cream with lots of flavors and good people. We go whenever we are in town and it is open.

Was looking forward to this as I read they have 50 flavors. I counted maybe 20 tops on the menu on a recent visit. Maybe due to pandemic. Long wait for our cones, and ice cream was very melted. I like when ice cream is...More

Great place, you can access by boat from the lake or by car on RT 219. The problem is it is always busy, but not impossible and always worth it.

We visited several times over the summer and fall 2019 seasons. The ice cream is okay. It could be served at a better temperature. Every time we received it, it was partially melted. Service was okay. They do have a dock, so boating to the...More
