The place smelled like my grandmother's vacation house. The ice cream was good. Just not served hygienically. Servers fingers dripping with chocolate syrup... I told my boyfriend not to scoop the melted ice cream on the stainless plate of that banana split we had... wait it was the three scoops we got instead. The walnut, butter pecan and strawberry ice...

I like the icecream as it's not as sweet as other brands/stores. However, if you ask me whether it's worth for the wait, I am not sure. They were a bit understaffed this afternoon so the wait was because customers needed to wait for them to clean the empty tables, for the menu, waited to order, waited long for the... More

The place came highly recommended by a local. So I went. The place is old and dingy. I sat at the counter and ordered an egg cream. I got served some warm milk with some premade vanilla syrup and warm seltzer...It was pretty bad maybe my expectations were too high. Serving bad ice cream is bad enough but I just... More

If you are in the mood for great ice cream mixed with nostalgia then come to Eddie's. The servers are nice and efficient - although when it's busy there is some confusion. And the ice cream? YUMMY - no need to go to those fancy shops on Austin when you can go old fashioned on Metropolitan.

Last of it's kind in this neighborhood! Authentic ice cream parlor like when my mother was a kid (I'm 50)! Great service good food but definitely go for the ice cream! I can't pass this place up without getting a chocolate egg cream, my all time favorite!!

The kids working here work hard. They could use a few more. Table service can be a tad slow when it is crowded. Think old school ice cream / soda fountain. Ice Cream is among the best I've ever had. Hot fudge is GREAT. NOT a place for calorie counting folks.

Eddie's is a local institution, located across from the local Cinemart Movie Theater. Dim lighting and casual service are overcome by fresh made ice cream and old time atmosphere.

I knew this ice cream parlor was special the moment we stepped through the old wooden doors of this old fashioned ice-cream shop that made home-made creamy smooth delicious mounds of heaven. It was a challenge to order from the vast ice-cream menu with special toppings. We settled on a banana split that was large enough for sharing. It was... More

I've been coming here for years and never disappointed! My favorite flavor is maple walnut - yummy! and I usually get a coffee ice cream soda with maple walnut ice cream. I've brought many friends here and they also think it's a find. Last time I was there I had an extra thick chocolate shake - it was worth the... More
