“Holy Cow is worth the trip.”
Review of Holy Cow

Holy Cow
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Red Hook

Reviewed September 10, 2012

In season, Holy Cow in Red Hook, NY is the most popular place in the town. The line winds out the door and into the parking lot for the better part of any summer evening. It is located across the road from the Lyceum Theater complex and so is most crowded after shows. The best time to get there is shortly after 5:00 pm before the movies begin and while people are still eating dinner or attending games. I think every sports team in the area must go to Holy Cow after a game. The ice cream and frozen yogurt are fantastic and you only have to taste once to understand their popularity. I don't exactly live nearby but I always find its worth the trip. Highly recommended.

This is a roadside ice cream stand / store. With plenty of outdoor tables filled with customers enjoying the various menu items and friendships. The flavors and ice cream were delicious, rich and creamy. All in all it is a throwback to the days of evenings under the stars with some friends or family and a cone.

We go to Holy Cow often, have had their hard cream, shakes/malts, ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cakes. All have been flavorful, rich, creamy, smooth and the perfect end to the day (we usually go after dinner). They have ots of counter servers, so although the line may look daunting, don't let that deter you. There is no inside seating, but there are lots of picnic tables outside. We love going!

Love the ice cream...very creamy. The service is equal to the ice cream. Don't be turned off by the lines if you're driving by. They are fast and accurate with their service. Can't wait to go back and did in to a banana split. Better bring your appetite as the servings are huge. Way to go...HOLY COW!!!

After enjoying lunch at a local Red Hook venue we stopped at Holy Cow for ice cream. Wow, the ice cream flavor selection was outstanding, the prices real reasonable and the service outstanding. We enjoyed our ice cream under a shaded picnic table. It is no wonder this place always has a line of folks waiting to be served. Not to worry, the line moves real fast. Next time you are in the Red Hook area stop at Holy Cow!!!
