“Well...”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Eh, I was really hyped when I went. My friends made it out to be WAY better than it was. Super overpriced for the quality and they give you barely any ice cream. I got cake batter, and there were chocolate cake crumbs which made the texture pretty gross. I mean, the ask cream wasn't bad but it wasn't "outstanding" either.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Absolutely tremendous ice cream, fudge and other goodies. The lines can get very kong but it s worth the wait. The people working there are very nice and try to make the wait as quick as possible.

“A must!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We always make it a point to visit Kilwin's after a meal downtown. The ice cream is great and it is fun to watch the candymakers doing their craft. I am a huge fan of the dark chocolate covered cherries. There can be a long line from 7-9pm on weekends but it is worth it.

“Yum!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Absolutely delish! Love the butter pecan waffle cones! Also, really like the chocolate milkshakes too! Really enjoy getting my ice cream and walking down to the riverfront!

“The best cone ever”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

As an ice cream lover, I search for homemade ice cream where ever I go. The ice cream here is among the best, but the cones are unmatched. Handmade in the store, the fresh cones can stand alone. But the ice cream is worthy of these delicious vessels.
