They have an extensive list of flavors. They have lots of toppings. Lots of sundae options, you can get your icecream atop a devil dog or ring ding! They can make blizzard type treats. Soft serve and hard. Nice area in back with adirondack chairs and a fun play area for the kids. They do have food but I've never... More

Not only are the ice-cream choices fun so are the outside seating options. They have a nice little play area for kids, they turned a wood fence into a beautifully decorated back drop to glider chairs, rockers and a double seated swing next to a nice little fountain. Very cozy place to have an ice-cream.

Great place to go for great ice cream and a cool place to hang with the kids in the shade. Cool playground and "porch" to sit on and chat!

This place is seasonal. Very good ice cream. Nice shady picnic tables. Parking lot for maybe 12 cars. Friendly service. They also serve hot dogs etc. But I have not tried that. Yes I will return. Some place for the little ones to play.

My wife ordered the Moose racks kiddy size cone and it was bigger then the a regular Baskin Robbins cone. I had the Chocolate Chip regular size and it had two scoups with a great portion of chips. They also had an outside sink to clean our hands, it was a hot day. We managed to find shade and set... More

My favorites are Whitehouse Cherry and several others that only they have! I keep going back for their Banana Splits (the original) too! They also serve food, but to tell you the truth, I would rather eat dessert first!

I had a craving for an ice cream one day while out for lunch. I stopped at Ballards and had a great cone. Plenty of ice cream packed high on a cone. Great creamy ice cream and great flavors available. Too many to list. The one I had was phenomenal. If your in the area, or in the mood for... More

My husband must have said that 5x ... "They really know what they're doing!". Adorable, friendly gent took our order and efficiently moved us to the next window where our orders were ready with a smile almost instantly. The flavors were unique and plentiful! I convinced my 10-yo to "try something we can't get at home" - the Deep Dish... More
