“Good ice cream, thousands of choices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Nothing special - but if you want ice cream and a large variety (like cold stone) then come here. Didn't get ice cream anywhere else this visit, so nothing to compare it to. Creamy and cold - and if you get a waffle cone, you don't have to worry about it dripping - they've found the secret....go find it, too :)

“Great Ice Cream Long Lines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

You can order a typical ice cream in a cup, cake cone or waffle cone. A single scoop is $3.35. Many folks want the squigley which means you can select up to 3 toppings which they dump into a corkscrew-like machine to mix it all together. You place your order and they make you wait in their small eating area while they make the order. It was very disorganized as they run out one cone at a time-4 people all taking orders, handling money and handling ice cream. The place is busy as the summer season has started and they need to get better organized as using one squigley machine when people are lined out the door doesnt work too well.

“kind of like coldstone but not as good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

They squish your toppings of choice through a machine so you end up with ice cream like served at coldstone, but the ice cream isn't anything special. Overpriced as usual at CB.

Welcome back! I wish we had a directory to our favorite places and when they plan to open. We had a nice surprise when we found Squigleys this weekend!

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stop in each year for a waffle cone. We like the decor and all the ice cream. Great service. Outside seating.
