We eat here every summer and I hate to say that the quality, size of the menu, and portions have decreased. The ice cream in the past couple of years wasn't as good as the years before that (we've been enjoying it since they opened). I keep getting soggy bread on my sandwiches, there are fewer vegetable based options and... More

Not only does this little place have fantastic fudge, they have awesome ice cream. You can also have nice lunch there as well. A must do if in the area.

In the middle of Labor Day weekend at 3:00pm the line into this small shop extended well outside (the in-town competition all closed). Perhaps this was mostly for the ice cream which we did not have. The sandwich and salad selections are very limited and heavy on portabello. We both had their "Awesome Cheddar" panini which in fact was quite... More

Loved there add in soft serve always get cheese cake and raspberry. Not consistent in size or flavor. It all depends on whos making it. Service is always "ok type" friendly. But this place is so overpriced for what you get. Unfortunately I'm a glutton for punishment and Icecream because we will go back for it over and over again.... More

I've traveled 35 minutes north just to get to this place for a dish of their pumpkin pie frozen yogurt blend (can't recall the special nomenclature for it!) Great salads and fudge. My Dad loves it, as well. I only had one unpleasant experience in all the times I have visited. The last time I visited it appeared we'd walked... More

At the Mill Fudge Factory, they definitely tout their fudge as having won awards and reviews from various people. It's pretty delicious and it's actually a unique, homemade take on fudge. It has more of the homemade butter + sugar flavor than some commercial fudges I've had, especially in vacation/tourism area, so it's a little different than you might be... More

Without a doubt The Mill Fudge Factory is my go-to place for ice cream. Their Swirl-In cone/dish is divine. First choose your hand crafted artisan ice cream flavor. Then add your choice of swirl-in/s (fresh fruits and/or candy, some homemade). My fave is their vanilla ice cream with fresh raspberries. The ice cream and swirl in then goes through their... More

The fudge is exceptional, the ice cream is very good as well however I'm not convinced it was worth the price tag. There is seating inside but it felt cramped we liked being out on the deck over looking the river.

Not much to say about the mill Fudge Factory that isn't a superlative. Their ice cream is superb and the fudge as well. They're back room offers very good inexpensive live music.
