Ice cream was great! Was a busy night and they moved us through the line pretty quickly. Great atmosphere and takes you right out on to the beach. Will definitely be back.

We enjoyed ice cream cones and hot fudge sundaes. A very friendly staff. There was a line, but it moved quickly- it was worth the wait.

My mouth begins to water everytime I cross into Garden City to see the Painters Ice Cream sign! This is a local and tourist favorite alike. Go every night! Try something different or stick with the Oreo Surprise!
