I love houseman's! The people are great, and so is the ice cream! It's right by a bike path so you can bike to it. 10/10 best ice cream around

We have loved this ice cream shop for decades. They serve generous portions at decent prices. The staff is friendly. Sometimes there are very long lines, but no one seems to be bothered by them.

This is a wonderful small town feel ice cream shop. Really friendly staff....and as my grandaughter always remembers....they will put googly eyes on your ice cream and you can eat them! Doesn't get any better than that!

Great little ice cream place at the end of the bike path sort of in Byron Center Mi. Not too crowded on the holiday Monday but other times in the summer it's probably standing in line for sure. Lots of nice wooden picnic type tables...More

This is a great old school, walk up and wait at the window ice cream place. Hard scooped, soft serve, cement mixers, etc. all excellent and fairly priced for the large servings. Regular visitor!
