My boys love this ice cream especially play-doh. My favorite is sugar free butter pecan. I love it there. Now they have fresh doughnuts.

We go here a few times every summer. They have good ice cream, a wide variety of flavors, and a fun, casual atmosphere. The Eskimo Kisses is great! They are open nearly year-round, so it doesn't have to be hot outside to enjoy their ice cream.

There aren't many choices for ice cream in Lancaster but we were hoping that Gypsy Joe's was going to be the perfect place to find some great ice cream in this southeast suburb of Columbus.

We've been spoiled by Graeter's and Jeni's (both found in Columbus) and, unfortunately, Gypsy Joe's wasn't even close. There was initial hope when we studied the interesting flavor combinations offered, but our taste buds fell flat when finally sampling the ice cream.

The interior is definitely tired and could use some TLC..as well as some cleaning. It's probably an advantage that Gypsy Joe's doesn't have strong competition close by.

We've gone there several times. It wasn't very tidy. The staff seemed overwhelmed when our family came in. The children were well behaved but yes there were 11 of us. Prices were a bit high.

This little ice cream store opened in 2002. It has been consistently excellent for all of that time. The decor is cute with bright paintings of monkeys and trees that kids always adore. The Ice cream is tope quality with portions being huge. There are many flavors to choose from, some of my favorites are Cupcake, Cinnamon, Banana cream pie and Peanut butter brownie. Of course there are many more and they do change flavors and add new ones quite a bit so we are never bored with the choices. You know you want it! (that's a saying they have written on the wall). go for it!
