Went there as it appears to have great ratings. Having never been before, we had questions about the offerings. We were a little hesitant, but as soon as what appeared to be regulars were walking in (called by name), we were told to be excused and off he went to greet them! We were a little put off by that! Custard was good, may or may not go back.

Good ice cream, lots if toppings. Kind of hidden on the strip. Would get more business if they had better prices.

Worth the stop and so good & creamy. Daily flavors with inside or outside seating. Great value for money; only wish variety of flavors were more than just a few.
