Baylor's has the best vanilla soft serve I've ever tasted. My wife really loves a medium vanilla cone dipped in chocolate.

Went here tonight for my daughter's bday. Everyone (4 of us) ordered either chocolate or vanilla ice cream - it tasted soured and inedible. We all had to toss it. I will say though that the kids they have working there are extremely polite and prompt. It's a shame the ice cream was bad. Enough to make me not want... More

Don't have much to say other than I like their ice cream. They are around the corner, so I will walk to Baylors to earn my dessert.

Great spot for soft serve, sundaes, or milkshakes. Highly sought out location in the summer and a great place for a family to get some ice cream.

I'm sure the ice cream is good but this ice cream stand closes at 9pm every night, including weekends. For some of us, that's too early. Sorry Baylor's.

This is a neat atmosphere (you can hang out outside while you eat) and the owners were friendly. The ice cream was not great though. We ordered 2 different shakes and weren't impressed. Will try again and order something different next time to see if it's any better.

Great soft serve ice cream and one of the few places that still dips soft serve in candied shell. Fast friendly service. Nice seating area with music. Would go again. US 1. Traffic is a little nuts and noisy.

This has been a fun, family-friendly place to stop for good ice cream. It has gotten better since last year, and our kids love to play there after their ice cream is finished. The background music adds to the fun atmosphere.

It's called Baylors now! New owner but same great taste and prices! The old owner is no longer there and business is picking up again. Nothing negative to say anymore. Come support the new owner.
