The choices are overwhelming and the atmosphere is super busy. But you'll enjoy going here to hang out and eat some ice cream while your out for the night in Denton Downtown. They have so many ice cream flavors to choose from. They'll give you samples to try so be prepared to eat and enjoy. The employees are so friendly... More

We had a family from Utah visiting and the took them downtown Denton on Saturday night and ended up the evening at the Ice Cream Fountain. The teenagers where thrilled and everyone had a blast sampling the ice cream and getting to pick their favorites. All the fountain crew where exceptional friendly and patient with us.

Couldn't resist stopping by for a scoop of home made ice cream. This was priced at 63 cents an ounce with a 2 ounce scoop being a " junior". We tried birthday cake, pralines and cream, and Sue's snickers. We were disappointed that they were out of the rum raisin and cupcake flavors. I really enjoyed the pralines and cream... More

Lots of great flavors to pick from and the kids enjoyed being able to sit outside and devour their ice cream. The sundaes are awesome as well! Must try!

Beth Marie's has the best ice cream in Denton. It's homemade, store has the feel of an old fashioned soda fountain. Friendly service. We don't go anywhere else for ice cream around here.

Enjoyed a sampler - 3 small scoops - of Texas Doctor (Dr Pepper with pralines - yummy, but talk about a sugar rush!), banana cream pie (very authentic), and caramel cheesecake. Also sampled my friend's country coconut (with chopped nuts - excellent). Quick service and an old-timely atmosphere (marble-topped tables and a high pressed-tin ceiling) right on the square. They...

Popped in for an old fashioned soda. It was not extremely busy, but you can tell it's a favorite when everyone tells you it's THE place to go for ice cream. If I wasn't completely stuffed from dinner, I would have gone for it. The soda was excellent, made with real syrup like int he old days. Will definitely be... More

Beth Marie's is a Denton treasure! Walk in the door, and you're transported back in time to an old-fashioned soda fountain. Take a look in the cases or at the menu board and you'll realize these aren't your grandparents' flavors.

The second you walk in you can smell the fresh waffle cones! Great selection of fluffy homemade ice cream! Perfect oasis on a hot Texas afternoon!

I have came to Beth Marie's plenty of times and love their ice cream. The sundaes are amazing, but honestly all the ice cream is very good. They are also very helpful and generous with fundraisers. We had a fundraising event at Beth Marie's and the employees were extremely helpful and accommodating.
