“So gosh darn good....”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I had gelato and spouse had the ice cream ... so we shared. I had two types of chocolate gelato and wow!!! so very, very good. The two scoops was more than enough for me and the price was reasonable. The ice cream I snagged a bit of was creamy goodness and my spouse was happy.

Go and go w/ some room...because you WILL want more than one scoop.

Service was quick and the guy helping us was friendly as all get out.

They also give you sample bites if you can't decide what you want!

“So much ice cream, so little time....”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We are just finishing up a 3 month, 8,000 mile trip around the US. 22 states, and one stop in Ontario Canada. We sampled ice cream where ever we went, searching for the best. No grocery store cartons for us. And forget Coldstone - not very good and very expensive.

Glacier is great. Excellent flavors, excellent mouth feel. Decadent. Go get some, you will not be disappointed.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Gave this a try and was very pleased with how delicious the ice cream was. The atmosphere is cozy with plenty of seating and it wasn't too pricey for a family of 3. They also offer a military discount if you ask.

“nice place to sit, eat gelato, and chat with friends”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Our friends introduced us to this place because they love it, so we went there with them on a Friday night. I like the atmosphere because there are plenty of places to sit inside and outside when most ice cream places are small with little seating. I also like that there are plenty of flavors of both gelato and ice cream, along with coffee. There was a long line and lots of people hanging out, which shows they have good business. We sat outside and talked until they closed at 10 and it was a lovely evening! I had chocolate pecan gelato and my husband had coconut gelato.
