Ice cream is my favorite food. The flavor selection and serving size at BB.s is extraordinary The location (across from the lake is ideal)

They have about 5 different panini offerings. We had the grilled cheese and the eggplant and they were great. They serve Hershey's ice cream. The baby cone/cup is as large as a small at most other ice cream stands. The lines can get long after...More

I've only tried two things there: the bottled water (which comes in their own specialty plastic bottles and is refreshing and flavor-free, just as water should be) and their soft-serve ice cream. Specifically, the flavor of the day (lemon) in a twist with vanilla. Lemon...More

One of my favorite places to bring first-time (or repeat) visitors to Chautauqua is Boxcar Barney’s. It’s a fun outing after a long day in the sun and on the water. I always tell my friends to ORDER A BABY CONE! The portions are HUGE....More

I had a large serving of the Coconut Chocolate Almond in a dish. GREAT! You can't go wrong. They have about 25 flavors. They serve soft ice cream, as well and they make great sodas and sundaes.

I'd go back to this place and order a small and then ask them to give me about half of what they usually give me--that's plenty of ice cream. And you wonder why we're all obese!

I know I am just another fan, but the ice cream is excellent and worth the wait in the ever present line.

I tried the new soft serve flavor, it was amazing. Was not expecting the vibrant colour and deliciousness. It was $3, but very big. Order a size smaller than you actually want and then the price is reasonable.

Great ice cream...the "baby" size is a small anywhere else. Friendly and efficient staff. They are always busy on a nice day, but the line moves pretty quickly.

Not to be rude here but the lines that they have, to bring in a product that may or may not sell that well wouldn't be worth the cost to set up to carry dairy free. Sorry
