I will keep posting about how the locals hate the floridiots and their nasty reviews no matter how many times it gets taken down. Go back to Florida we don't want you. We love our local businesses. Great job guys you rock.

The site is nothing to speak of, but the ice cream is fantastic. The only complaint is many flavors were not available. Maybe the place is just too popular.

This is just your average ice cream place. Better to go when it isn't raining and when it isn't cold outside as seating is limited. People with classic cars come and show them in the parking lot on weekends

We went in after dinner for ice cream and there was a dog n the restaurant, at a table, on the floor. It was dirty and was NOT a service dog. I was grossed out. We left and will not be back.
