“Best Ice Cream Place in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We love Mooney's, don't forget about them in the winter, the ice cream is still just as good! GREAT value, lots of ice cream for very little money, millions of favors that you can try a taste of before committing to a whole scoop. They also stock a few ice cream cakes in the freezer if something comes up to celebrate. Locally owned for years.

“Best Ice Cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It says I visited in August, but in reality I go to Moonies more than I should!! It is delicious ice cream with unique flavors and the value is top notch! But be warned! A single is actually two scoops and a double is three scoops! Favorite flavors include cinnamon crumb cake, chocolate, moose tracks, mackinac island fudge, and cookies and cream just to name a few! If you love ice cream, you will definitely enjoy Moonies!!

“Best ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is the classic local ice cream shop. They serve really large portions of delicious ice cream. I get a baby scoop which fills a whole styrofoam cup full.

“This place is always busy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We took my 93 year old mother there for a treat, she had the Black Cherry and loved it. My wife and I usually split a Banana Split, they are big and with so many choice of ice cream and several topping. Always friendly no matter how busy they are.

“Tasty ice cream in the tri cities!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Came here after going to the nearby Greek Fest, and considering that it was pretty hot out, it was a refreshing treat. With the long lines (due to the hot weather), the service was pretty slow, but with only 2 young girls assisting, it was understandable. Others didn't seem to be as forgiving. Be patient people!

Husband and I split a baby size Mackinac Island Fudge. Similar portions to Ray's down in Royal Oak, but the consistency was richer and creamier. Personally prefer Ray's over this place, but the flavor was nice. The small chunks of fudge mixed in was the right size and wasn't overwhelming in the mouth. Priced at $2.50 for the baby size, it was cheaper than Ray's.

I'd come back next time I was in the area for another function, and I think it's a nice treat if you are in the area, but if you're impatient, don't bother coming here during warm weather.
