We visit the are every summer and make several trips here. The soft serve is extra creamy and sure to please all. Great portion sizes for a good price.

This place only opens in the summer. I always get the medium soft ice cream. You can get a waffle cone without additional charge for that. The portion is huge too. I will go back next summer!
