“Chocolate, vanilla of Irish cream were the flavors today”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I had small chocolate waffle cone. It was very rich and satisfying - two scoops on a great cone! My companion had a coffee shake, which he said was good, too. Yum - stop here!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Based on the great reviews on this page we had to try it while in town for the Blueberry festival. Even on a rainy cold day (50 degrees), the frozen custard was fabulous!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

This was very delicious and a nice alternative to regular ice cream. Would've like to have stopped again for the flavor of the day today which was strawberry but they were closed and we had to leave town. Would stop again if we're ever in the area.

“Mom & Pop Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The last of the little roadside Mom&Pop ice cream stands.While the crowd who know no better line up at DQ you can choose from a cornucopia of homemade exotic flavors without the big wait. I had amaretto and it was delicious. The best part is it was served by the most beautiful girls in Ely so we sat at the picnic table a long long time.

“Plan to have many a custard here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

It's on the other side of town from where we stayed, but, we ate here at least four times in our week at the lake! If you visit Dorothy Molter Museum or The Wolf Center, you are very close. We were in town Tuesday night for the live music at the Front Porch, and this was our nite cap to the evening!
The friendly fellow that dished up our custard answered all our questions about the area, and when it rained we ate under the pavillion across the parking lot.
They don't take cards, so be prepared! Very generous servings.
