Very friendly service and a nice selection of flavors. I had the cannoli flavored Ice Cream and enjoyed every decadent bite. It was empty but clean and we were there early in the day. A nice stop along the way.

My husband and I had a groupon-type coupon and decided to try their sandwiches. We arrived about 5 p.m. And found out we could not order paninis because the employee was too young to use the machine! So we ordered othe sandwiches. The first was a roast beef on kimmelweck which was good but could have used a little meat.... More

This establishment is privately owned. The ice-cream is made at the shop by the owner . It is very thick, creamy & delicious. They have a variety of flavors and offers anything from cones to sundae's.

I like to order take-out lunches from this place. The paninis are great. I enjoy the Meatball hogies and roast beef too. Not a huge lunch menu, but it has some basic comfort foods That are perfect for a quick lunch. It's been under new management since summer 2015, and Dorothea (the new owner) is doing a nice job.

Canalside Creamery is a local favorite, especially if you like Perry's ice cream and inexpensive, large scoops! Cute place, 50's theme, classic car shows over the summer.

Very nice little ice cream parlor with delicious ice cream and the names of their sundaes reflect the area. Prices are very reasonable and the portion size is amazing. Can sit inside or outside at cute little curbside tables.

Choices for lunch are slim: hot dog or beef on weck. No matter, my friend, daughter and I had lunch here today. Service was fast and courteous. The chocolate milkshakes were VERY good.I don't live all that close by and probably will never go again. We also enjoyed the "oldies" music.

Walk into the past at Canalside Creamery. This little gem is located on Webster Street in North Tonawanda, NY right across the street from the historic Riviera Theater. The shop has that old time feel as 50's music plays as you enjoy your ice cream. The shop specializes in ice cream which is quite evident when you walk in. Flavors... More
