This is a great place to take the family for ice cream. We've encountered friendly, helpful staff on each of our visits. Dad likes it because the servings are so big. I like it because there are a lot of flavors that meet my kids' taste preferences. Their waffle cones should not be missed! Yum!

Mooney's is our town ice cream shop. Has been a favorite around here for many years. Always great portions and friendly staff and tons of different flavors to choose from.

Hands down the best place to go for ice cream in the Great Lakes Bay region. Countless options. Delicious ice cream. Huge portions for a reasonable price. I highly recommend the Bumpy Cake, whereas my husband's favorite varies from visit to visit.

Excellent place to get some excellent ice cream!! The amount of ice cream you get in a cup or cone is amazing!! They have lots of flavors, and it's so good...always busy, but worth the wait for sure.....I love that place.....

This ice cream place does it right! Huge selection of hard ice cream. Spoke to the girl behind the counter and she advised all of the ice cream is Mooneys recipes, but made for them by Deans. Got a double scoop hot fudge sundae with peanut butter moosetracks ice cream and it was delicious. They did not skimp on the... More

Kids always love going here, local atmosphere and a ton of flavors. Very reasonable price! Only negative is the owner doesn't seem to be the friendliest.

This is a flavorful ice cream stop. There's always a wide assortment of flavors. Chocolate, strawberry, and butter pecan are some of the traditional ones. Then there's chocolate chip, Mackinac Island fudge, Superman, and many others. Amounts are generous compared to other places so go hungry. You'll be able to chose from a cup, a cone, a waffle cone, sundaes,... More

Mooney's goes way back in Saginaw's history and moved to this location many years ago which is nice as it is only a mile away. There ice cream is very good. Selection and toppings extensive yet reasonably priced. They always have sugar free options as well. Their seating is limited and summer lines can be long but service is quick... More

Mooney's brand of Ice cream is very good. If you order a "single", it is actually two scoops. You can choose two different flavors in a "single" order. That is what I did. I dined here during the Christmas season. No huge crowd and the owners have animated figurines set up at the counter and at the tables. FUN! The... More
