Brought three teenagers over after early dinner at Grimaldi's across the parking lot. 5 waffle cones, double dips was $30 bucks. Expensive but their ice cream is excellent, I had the Toasted Coconut and Strawberry Chunk, both were very flavorable with great texture. They have hand-made candies and popcorn as well and the place smells great. Not cheap but much... More

Kilwins has great ice cream in many flavors along with chocolate candies. Staff are very friendly and offer samples of ice cream before you buy.

Delicious treats! We had the Caramel Granny Smith Apple covered with peanuts this time. Fudge and Ice Cream is also good. Like most places in this area, a bit pricey.

We stopped in to get a caramel apple. The service was great and very helpful. Unfortunately the apple wasn't quite as delicious as others we had had (from different places), but it was still yummy.

Kilwin's in Grand Boulevard does not disappoint. We've been here twice now and are impressed by the consistent cleanliness of the store, quality of the ice cream, and the employees' cheery demeanor. During both visits they welcomed us and our numerous taste requests happily. The ice cream is rich and flavorful, and the fudge has the perfect texture. If you're... More

Went with my oldest girls and got some ice cream after dinner. They liked it but they are kids and like all ice cream. I on the other hand was not that impressed I have had better off the shelf of the grocery store. And the coffee is extremely lacking. Way over priced for what you get. I won't be... More

I love fudge anytime but especially on vacation. We're always greeted with a smile and the courtesy continues to gathering our order and finalizing at the register. Though we go for the fudge, I can't help but look at the candies, novelties, ice cream, and other goodies that are available. You can't go wrong by stocking up on desserts here.... More

So this was my first experience here and all I can say is that it does not disappoint. The ice cream is through the roof - we all tried different flavors and everyone loved their own particular flavor. I also purchased a few of their caramels. It was soooooo very good. I would definitely go back and visit whenever we... More

Located on the Grand Blvd, it's a nice place to get ice cream. It is rather expensive and the lines can be long. You can purchase their candy there too.
