“Udderly the best ice cream”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Nothing says summer more than pulling up to an incandescent oasis and ordering cool ice cream treats.

This place offers service with a smile while satisfying your sweet tooth with great ice cream treats. It has been in the area for years and there is plenty of outdoor seating to watch all the summer fun while you enjoy your treat.

I highly recommend it!

“the ice cream has a good flavor”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

the service is ok, but the ice cream is good...perhaps it was a little early in the season and later the service will improve. Large selection of toppings to blend in with your ice cream.

“Classic ice cream shop”
Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

This place has been a part of Johnston forever. The owners keep it in excellent condition and the food, ice cream and service is excellent. Try the cheddar balls if you get a chance. They are great.
