Don't visit often, but wanted to treat ourselves once more this season. Had their brownie sundae and the cider donut sundae. Both humongous, both fantastic! Found out donut was from Lindsey's - among the best anywhere. They do a great job, young people serving are always super friendly!

Don't go here as often as I would like as I always seem to be dieting but the soft mint ice cream is to die for and the Fall specials--apple pie ice cream and pumpkin ice cream can't be found anywhere else locally, at least to my knowledge. The servings are HUGE, lots of cheerful servers and the cascading flowers... More

We go here at least once every few weeks for the BEST ice cream in the capital district. Location for area car shows is ideal.

Great selection of ice cream and ice cream products except when it comes to sugar free/no sugar added choices. Diabetics have only 3 choices and none of them are soft ice cream. Disappointing. Service is great.

After hearing the commercials we decided to give it a try - ordered the brownie sundae with coffee ice cream (hard) they have soft as well and a strawberry sundae with pistachio ice cream (hard) we both got a regular which was large can't image what a large would be - more than enough ice cream with whipped cream, nuts...

Stopped here with our Grand Daughter and Great Grand Daughter for ice cream cones. The selections available were mind boggling. They had 5 widows taking orders and there were hardly any delays. All flavors are made there and the ice cream was delicious.

I have a dairy allergy. But they're soft serve nondairy ice cream is fantastic. I believe it's called flavor burst. Don't miss it!

It's ice cream. I mean, there IS that... Otherwise, there really just isn't much to recommend the joint. It's soft ice cream like everyone else has, at nearly one and a half times the price. Try one of the many other local options for a much better value!

We only serve the best soft serve ice cream available and the best hard ice cream available. There definitely is a difference in the quality of our ice cream. We hope you try Guptill's again this summer! More
