Love their homemade ice cream. I like ice cream with lots of stuff in it and they have a few flavors that suit me well. Relish!

I've been a customer of this establishment since I was a young child. By far, the best ice cream north of Boston with a variety of unique flavors. I doubt that anyone has ever been disappointed by this place!

I love Melatharb and tell all my family and friends about it. My favorite is the coffee Oreo. My family and I order their ice cream cakes for all of our special occasions and love them. Highly recommend this place.

I have been a fan of Meletharb's for over 20 years. It is amazingly awesome! My favorite ice cream on the planet! You can't go wrong with any of the flavors (Espresso Chip, Pumpkin, Peanut Butter Oreo or anything in between). And Jared goes above and beyond to make sure that the flavors, quality and customer service exceed expectations. You... More

I have been hearing about Meletharb for a while now, and I finally got around to trying their ice cream. Boy, they did not disappoint. Their prices are not cheap, but I don't think they are any more expensive than, say, JP Licks. And the quality of the ice cream is definitely worth the price. They have some great, unusual... More

Wow. Really good ice cream in the suburbs. Matches the 'big' city places like JP Licks, Toscanini's etc. Well done Melehtarb!!! Small portions at a high price drop this from a five to four stars in my book.

Excellent ice cream with a variety of flavors. We like that there are the regular flavors and usually some new interesting ones like the time there was orange sherbert with chocolate chips mixed in. YUM! A clean and friendly establishment. Raspberry lime rickies and shakes for those not in the mood for a cone or sundae.

We get ice cream cakes for our staff birthdays from Meletharb's throughout the year. When we ordered one last week the flavors were not what we ordered. When we called to report the error the man who spoke to us began the sentence with "you're wrong" and refused to listen to our complaint. When I spend $35 for a birthday... More

Truly the best ice cream in the area! Plus the staff is wonderful and you can tell they take real pride in their work and care about their customers. The oreo ice cream is the best. They also make amazing ice cream cakes that are great for a birthday or any other occasion!
