The chocolate ice cream was amazing. The rest of my family were also happy with their fares. Good location too.

We stopped here on a hot day and got a couple of smoothies. Very good combinations of fruits, juices and yogurt. Great way to cool off and relax after a long day.

I thought the ice cream was very tasty! My husband also enjoyed his mocha since he was in the mood for coffee. Nice atmosphere and cute store!

The ice cream flavors they advertise on their website are not the same you'll find in the store, which is disappointing. Love the frappes though.

Not that great Ice cream just didn't taste right. There is always a long line there, so someone must like it. I would go somewhere else.

When visiting Orleans during the summer, Emack and Bolio's is usually our last stop of the night after sunset at the Bay. They don't take credit so be sure to have cash on hand, but the ice cream and shakes are wonderful with great flavors.

Love this place. I've eaten ice cream throughout the immediate area, and I like theirs the best. The hot fudge sauce is especially good. (I am a connoisseur of hot fudge!) Staffed by cute college kids on summer break. My only complaint is that they are not open all year!

John and Carol know their business. Ice cream is just what you want on a hot summer night, and theirs and their concoctions, are the best. If you need a tennis partner, then Carol can do that, too.

Alway a treat, good ice cream with many choices. Peach, a seasonal favorite of mine every summer. Staff is very helpful. Nice outdoor tables with plenty of room for a family in the afternoon.

The Free ice cream tastes are something to anticipate! The hot fudge is very rich and satisfying. The ice cream flavors are always different and quench the ice cream thirst. The shakes and Frappes are superb as well. Besides Ben and Jerry's, The Sundae School and Arnold's- one of the better places to get your ice cream fix.
