“Attached to the Grand Hotel”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a perfectly good ice cream parlor in a great setting. Nothing spectacular, but very pleasant with a fair variety of flavors so everyone will be happy. Besides, who doesn't like ice cream. The parlor is named after the owner's wife's prize winning Scottie. And the best part is you can sit on the porch of the Grand Hotel and gaze at the Mackinac Bridge and Lake Huron as you eat.

“Instead of dinner”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

After a robust "happy hour" we opted to skip dinner and bicycle down the hill for ice cream! It was a no-brainer! If only we hadn't had to ride back up....
