Great ice cream. Cool concept. Highly recommend the Campfire S'mores. I hear there is usually a line but we got in without wait. Cool to watch them make the ice cream. Highly recommend especially with kids.

You'd want to go there not only because you'd be curious as to how they make the ice cream in front of you but also you can have alcohol in it! It's a place for all children, young ones and once young. Enjoy!
