We lived in the Quad Cities (home of Whiteys) for years. I never craved Whiteys until after we moved. Now we're back in the Midwest and hit this location occasionally as it's so conveniently located off I-80. We tend to hit it if we're in...More

If you love great homemade ice cream then Whiteys will not disappoint! Chocolate chunk raspberry, peanut butter cup, pralines in butter pecan! Need I say more! My only negative at this location, (that kept me from giving it five stars), was the staff. Every other...More

Whitey's has tons of great flavors and good service. I've gone there each time I've been in Iowa City in the last 12 years. Somehow I never noticed that they serve a "Boston: a sundae served on top of a shake". I've had ice cream...More

Whitey's is a staple for Iowa City, especially in the summer. There's no way to go wrong here, but do yourself a favor and at least sample the Graham Central Station.

Want some really great ice cream or smoothies- this is the place. Although down the street you can purchase stone cold ice cream I think this is better and its a "made in Iowa" product.

Whitey's is always our choice for ice cream in the Ped Mall. The best value is to order the hand packed pint and get a couple spoons! Cup-o-joe espresso is always our first choice. The staff members are usually friendly and helpful.

I expect premium ice cream when I go to an ice cream shop. The ice cream here has too much sugar and not enough butter fat. It's really ice milk. I assume a lot of people like their ice cream that way since this place...More
