“You Gotta Try It”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were visiting our niece’s family in Greenwood and they said this is the kids’ favorite ice cream place. When we went, we could see why. Very tasty. The kids had something like Dipping Dots, only it’s called melting morsels, or something like that. We had hot fudge sundaes. The eating area is a little patio out back. It’s cute and there are ducks and an occasional turtle in and around the pond. Then we went across the street to visit the library and play in the creek. Give it a try. It’s a local institution.

“Made My Hair Stand on End...In a Good Way”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

So, we finished lunch at Jockamo pizza in Greenwood. Afterward, we decided to go to Mrs. Curl for a dessert. This place is awesome! The variety is so bountiful. I had a raspberry malt, which is so hard to find. And it was so good. My wife had a blackberry malt which is even harder to find. My daughter had a blizzard-type dessert which had way more chunks than Dairy Queen, and it was all much cheaper than DQ. The service was fast too. I ordered and we had our treats in less than 90 seconds. AMAZING!! There is also a stream that runs along side the property where they have a fountain, and you can sit and enjoy a scrumptious chilled treat on a hot day under the shade of a wild berry tree. But, be careful cause the fruit has a tendency to drop. They also have fish food for sale for a quarter so you can feed the fish. There were no fish that day, but the ducks had a feast. Even if you have to go out of your way, a trip to Mrs. Curl is worth it. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.

“Family time, date night, special ice cream date”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Mrs. Curl's is a lovely hidden gem. Known well to locals, this tiny ice cream take-a-way is in a fun and romantic little spot with a pond and multiple gazebos. Across from a public park and library make for a fun day. Also, the ice cream is tasty and affordable. The x-tra small cone is perfect for kids or those not wanting to over indulge.

“Old time atmosphere, good quality soft serve ice cream”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

It doesn't look like much from the street but the service was good and the ice milk (soft serve) is good quality. The large line outside was my first hint that it might be pretty good. I sure wasn't disappointed.

“Hidden gem the locals know”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Growing up in the southside you know about Mrs Curl. It is a tiny ice cream stand where you wait in long lines for inexpensive, delicious treats. We joke that there are a lot of ice cream places around, but Mrs Curl is the only place we can all four get ice cream for less than five dollars.

It is noted that the stand previously only accepted cash, but at our most recent visit we saw a sign that credit cards were accepted for a fee. Sweet!
