Great ice cream! This is a fun place to go for great homemade ice cream. The waffle comes are a must try! We went there every night of our stay in Baldwin. Butter pecan in a waffle cone is the best!

Don't let the lines scare you. The ice cream is worth the wait. I'm never disappointed. Get a waffle cone. You'll love it.

I have been going to Jones Ice Cream since I was a kid and this is one of my favorite ice cream places. All of their ice cream is made in house and they have a new flavor each week along with the constant favorites like blue moon, peppermint chip, butter pecan, strawberry and the list goes on and on. This place is always busy but even when their is a line out the door they get everyone through very quickly. The staff is great and will let you sample anything you want. They give you a lot of ice cream and really pack it down in your cup or mound up your waffle cone high. We go there every time we are in Baldwin and I highly recommend it.

All of the ice cream in this shop is made on the premises. Very nice choice of flavors and daily specials. We chose the Mackinaw Fudge and Dark Cherry ice creams in homemade waffle cones. Loved both flavors, and the cones were really good. Also loved that it was sort of mid-continuum in terms of butterfat content, so really good taste and texture without the worry of fat/cholesterol contained in super premium brands (at least that was my assumption based on perceived density). The Mackinaw Fudge was a vanilla ice cream with giant chunks of gooey fudge...really delicious. The Dark Cherry was a cherry ice cream with whole or half cherries mixed in. Good flavor. Super generous servings. Our server offered tastes of anything we wanted. Very friendly, helpful service in a very busy, air-conditioned shop. Plenty of employees to take care of customers, and they were also constantly cleaning the place. It was a great respite after a full afternoon of canoeing on the Pere Marquette River. They also have sandwiches and drinks if you're looking for more. Glad the proprietor of the shop across the street recommended this place to us. Great small town hospitality. Make sure you tip your server!

Ice cream was good, altho we seek out homemade ice cream places on our travels and we've had better...but my main gripe was the multiple workers swabbing the floors around us 2 hours before closing time, loudly gabbing away over our heads -- not good....
