Nice place when the evening was winding down. They have their flavors never seen at other ice cream store and its real good. After dinner while walking down Steinwehr Ave this would be a nice place to stop.

Sunset was winding down its season. We had received vouchers for an ice cream treat as part of a package at the Brickhouse Inn, but I am dairy-allergic. While my husband enjoyed a (gigantic) one-scoop cone, they were so accomodating to me to allow me a brownie with Reese's PB cups and chocolate syrup on top. Yum!

VERY good ice cream. We visited on a weeknight so it wasn't crowded at all. You get a lot for the money.

Great variety and friendly staff. Good location in town and a perfect stop while touring around. I recommend the Rebel Yell

We both opted for the peanut butter chocolate in a cup. Our servings were both huge and had a lot of peanut butter in it. It's odd that this place was next door to Kilwin's who also serves ice cream. They have a few tables inside plus some tales and benches outside. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable considering... More

No question, wonderful and reasonable and the best in town and maybe anywhere. Great flavors, nice location. Friendly people are behind the counter and the scoops are huge, so be careful ordering two scoops.

They have a great selection of flavors. I had Cherry Vanilla ice cream in a regular cone. One scoop was as big as two scoops at other places I have been.

Every flavor of ice cream under the sun and very, very good! Gelato is excellent! Well worth having dessert here after your dinner/lunch, or perhaps a snack sometime during the day! Service was great! You can stroll the main street while eating ice cream, or have a seat inside or outside this old ice cream parlor and enjoy! A must... More

Nice little ice cream parlor with nice little prices jacked up so they make a good buck off the tourist, too bad this happens in some many of these places
