Yum! I rarely come here; but I had a coupon and gift certificate, so why not? The strawberry shortcake and coconut combo was delicious! So many combinations to choose from... you must go back!!

This is where one goes for ice cream specialities and big creations. But no surprises as this is the same as other Cold Stone franchises.

It's Cold Stone. And it's ice cream. It'd take a lot to screw that up. Always tasty, whether you just want a scoop or two, or some other creation of theirs.

I love Cold Stone Ice Cream, it really is the best. This branch however served up the meanest amount of ice cream and ingredients we have ever had at any of its facilities. Even with the server going back to the tray for another scoop,...More

A sure stop on the trip. Love the icecream. Not good for the healthy lifestyle, but excellent for mental health :-)

Cold Stone has really good ice cream, but it takes time to make a flavor and they never seem to have enough help. When I went in on a Saturday afternoon there was only one person working the whole place. They need to do the...More
