“Heavenly Dark Chocolate”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is the best ice cream we have ever tasted--
The Dark chocolate is like none other. Great place to end up
after a lake walk or start off a lake walk. Tremendous view to savor a
cone or a malt by!!

“I've been wanting to try this place it seems like forever!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Our last trip to Duluth this summer I made it a point to stop by and try one of their famous malts.
It was good but nothing to make me want to go back there again...sorry folks but there are other ice cream options in Duluth.
How about Bridgeman's over the hill?

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

The previous reviewer was right on point! Though you have a lot of options to personalize your malt, there was too much malt powder, service was very slow and the cost was way too pricey! Cash only else you have to purchase a gift card at the store next door. The only good part was the view of Lake Superior!

“No Malt for Me”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is a quaint shop along the lake, but the malt was terrible. I think it was too much malt powder! Service was very slow. Just not worth the cost.

“Yum!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is a wonderful little malt shop. You just order at the window. The malts/shakes are excellent. If you are an ice cream lover you should not miss this little gem.
If you choose to drink your shake at one of the nearby picnic tables, there is a really great view of the lake.
