My dad used to take me here. Now I take my kids. The ice cream is one of the best. They have soft serve and hard ice cream. You can order ice cream cakes as well. During the summer months it does get busy. It's worth the trip. One of my favourite, almond joy.

Never had a flavor I didn't fall in love with at the first lick! I prefer vanilla, coffee, pralines 'n cream, peach in season, and all the holiday specific ones too. My friend who introduced us to Curly's has been going here since her teen years and moved to the area one year ago. When we visit- which is often-... More

When ever my grandaughter visits we stop at Curly's. She has loved their ice cream for years. Her favorite is a Mint-Chocolate Chip double cone. I like the seasonal Pumpkin and Apple flavors. The rapsberry chocolate is incredible! We never had a flavor that we didn't like.

My favorite thing to get is the soft chocolate and vanilla twist with sprinkles. You really can't go wrong. Their icecream cake is delicious if you ever need a bday cake. My only wish is that it had better seating. I don't like sitting in the parking lot off 23. They did add picnic tables though.
