The ice cream was ok, nothing special. It took a couple minutes to get. Then we decided to go inside for a hot dog (only ice cream can be ordered outside). It was extremely slow to even get to give our order, even though there were only two parties in front of us. The woman was a bit older, not... More

The Country Boy is our favourite place for ice cream in Gimli. Fresh, delicious and generous portions. A great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner too!

This place is located right across the street from the Lakeview Resort. We've visited a number of times, and found the service to be hit and miss. The ice cream, however, is always a hit. Grab a cone and go for a nice walk along the boardwalk!

We really enjoyed getting ice cream here and will be back again soon. The service was friendly and there were a lot of options. The portions are big and very good for sharing. We like to come here while waiting for our table at Brennivan's.

I always enjoy the Country Boy Restaurant in Gimli. My favourite dish is the fish and chips. The restaurant is well located.

Had country boy burger and fries. Burger was a great with chili and toppings, messy but delicious. Fries had a hair in the bag. Service was disinterested, bordering on rude.
