They have the best ice cream anywhere and a friendly, young staff. On a warm summer night the parking lot is crowded but the lines move very fast. If you are new to the area it is a great place to meet people. This is what small town summer is all about.

Have been going here forever, it's a great local tradition in the Maynard-Stow area. The ice cream, which is made right there, is delicious and comes in dozens of flavors and served by cheerful local teens. As another reviewer has noted, your dog will get a free scoop and there are picnic tables around back to enjoy your treats. There... More

Erikson's ice cream is the old fashioned ice cream place that use to be more prevalent. On a hot summer night, the parking lot is packed with families, friends, and ice cream addicts.

It is getting to be the end of the season and not all flavors are available. This does not mean that the size or flavor of the remaining flavors is any different. Great ice cream, huge sized cones!

Erikson's Ice Cream is an experience! It has been Around forever! You simply drive up to a big parking lot. The building has three windows where you order your ice cream, frozen yogurt or soft serve. There are picnic benches available behind the building. You do not go for the atmosphere but do go for the great ice cream!

I went with my children and had a wonderful frappe. Kids ordered ice cream. All tasted rich and creamy. They have quite an impressive selection of flavors to choose from. Ample parking. This is a cash/check only establishment so come prepared. Reasonable prices. Punic tables out back.

Really worth a visit, wonderful ice cream, great value for money. Old style, road side ice cream palour that people drive a long way to visit. Best in the area by a long way
