Make a memory - take a day trip to Velvet Ice Cream Co - Not just an ice-cream factory. The area includes a park w/pond, shelter, trails plus the bonus of the old mill. Lots of history here. Only the bonus is having delicious ice-cream!!!! I had a scoop of coffee ice cream.

I took my daughter on a birthday trip to see the Velvet Ice Cream Company. She had read about the old mill in the Kids Love Ohio book! It was a fun. learning adventure and complete with some great ice cream!

An ice cream and gift shop next to the velvet Ice Cream factory. Set next to a public park with a pond. Great ice cream with a large variety of flavors.

We have visited the Velvet Ice Cream Restaurant/facility a few times as a family and have enjoyed it every time. The first time of course we did the tour and the subsequent visits we primarily just relaxed with our ice cream treats outside at the patio tables and watched the ducks and people walking around the pond, kids playing and...

Stopped by the Velvet Ice Cream Co. on my way to Pennsylvania. Absolutely incredible ice cream. Loved the Mill, Carriage Rides and the Country Setting!

Beautiful day and location. Nice little tour for a brand I had never heard of but they ship to 28 states and are served at Bob Evans and sold in Kroger. Tasty stuff!

They have good food and ice cream. A place that everyone would like. Small children can run and play outside, I believe they had a small park. They have a gift shop too. There are tours of the factory during the week, but we were there on a weekend.

The building has charm but the restaurant needs help. Met a relative for lunch. The server was friendly but did not seem well trained. My check was not itemized. A wrap priced at $8.99 on the menu showed up as $11.99 on my bill. The server did not explain that replacing the side of chips with soup had an up... More

We stopped here for ice cream and a nature hike. We visit the ponds and the river. We took several photos here from our engagement to celebrating our anniversary. We are thrilled with the landscape. I've seen birthday parties hosted here and festivals. It's a great area both public and private. I wish the indoor area were larger, there are... More
