Great hand scooped ice cream. They have a lot of different flavors and the half price banana split Thursday is an unbelievable deal. We went here 3 of our 7 nights.

Many treats to choose from, but how can you pass on "two scoop Tuesday"? Our kids tried some flavors outside their norm and the employees had great advice on some new flavors. The choices were abundant, the portions generous and the prices reasonable.
