“Best local icecream around”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The quality, freshness, and assortment of flavors here is really hard to beat. If I lived in the area, I wouldn't buy anything else! The portions are huge--- a kids size is plenty enough for me! They also put sprinkles on the bottom of the cup and on top

“Wonderful Ice Cream”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is one of my favorite place to get ice cream: they are excellent and the portions are huge even the small one. I am in love with those homemade ice cream. And if you like rum raisin, this is the place to get it. The cake batter and black raspberry are also great (so are the other flavors); you can also get two different flavors in a cone or bowl. There's always a lot of people but the wait is not too long. I haven't tried the yogurt yet but heard that they're good too.

“Terrific Ice Cream. Too bad we don't live anywhere near”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Six of us went to the dairy for ice cream. Most got bowls but I got a small cone. The cone was small but the amount of ice cream on it was huge. Take some extra napkins if you get a cone. There were benches to sit on near the pasture. There were a lot of people but also many servers so we did not wait long at all. I ordered cocoanut ice cream which was unusual but it was good.

“Great Ice Cream; a local landmark and favorite”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Crescent Ridge always has a crowd waiting to share some of the best ice cream that you can find anywhere south of Boston or north of Providence.

They offer a great variety of flavors and have yogurt flavors as well. Try a cup or a cone and you'll be back to get in line for an ice cream treat. The wait on hot nights is fairly long but they have a bunch of windows open and it moves pretty well.

In side the building they offer their other dairy products and for the summer, they offer a Farmers Market on Saturdays from 11 AM- 2PM with a good selection of veggies as well as bakery and other products including their beef products from their own herd.

“A place to visit if you like ice cream . . .”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Crescent Ridge is a institution within Sharon. Obviously, the thing to get here is ice cream. Every flavor I have tried is wonderful, the portions are big and the atmosphere is classic with lines stretching out from the serving windows surrounded by pastures with cows and goats. If you are in the area and you like ice cream, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. (P.S. The locals all know that ordering the "mini-kiddie" size is more than enough for most appetites.)
