The food is decent, consistent and priced well. There is great ice cream and a ton to look at and occupy young minds. The little room in the back with the corral and barn is AMAZING!! My son still talks about it even though we moved three months ago. Actually, I kind of miss it too. There is one woman there who is known for being consistently grouchy, but... hey. There's always one in the group, right?

Don't bother eating lunch here. Just go for the ice cream. Lunch was extremely disappointing and frankly, not fresh. The ice cream as well as the facility overall were very very good. Kids LOVED it.

Visited about a week ago with 5 year old daughter. Purchased 1 scoop of strawberry ice cream in a cup. Lady behind counter acted as though I had disturbed her when ordering. When my daughter and I were about to leave she had a lot of ice cream left in her cup so I went to lady to ask for a lid. She looked at me as if I didn't have the right to ask her for lids. She flounced over got 2 lids and tossed them on the counter.
I have been there a couple of times before and received the same results I will not be going back and will never recommend to anyone.

We stopped in for a banana split. Good but a little slow service but they were extremely busy so we understood.

Love the cow theme and the small kids seem to love it for birthday parties. For we adults, the flavor of Maola ice cream still reigns supreme especially those of us that grew up with it everyday. Some of us still remember the bottles of milk w/ the thick cream left by the milk man on the front porch.
