This is the best ice cream that you can get any where. The staff is friendly and helpful. The store was clean and organized. The selection of ice cream is great along with how you can get your selections.

We stopped here while on vacation in Sandusky. There is a huge que set up inside so I can only guess this place is very popular in the summer. We were the only customers this day. We reviewed the many ice cream flavors and made...our choices. There were a lot of employees behind the counter and all very friendly and helpful. The small waffle cone had about four scoops of ice cream. I don’t think I even finished half of it. My companion got a caramel apple sundae which he said was excellent but again it was so huge he only finished half. The ice cream is good, they have a lot of flavor choices, but I honestly don’t know why it is so hyped. I guess it is a local favorite and that’s great. There is absolutely nothing negative about it, it’s just not a place I would return to.More

We were in Sandusky for vacation (Cedar Point, Kalahari, the islands) and we stopped at Toft's one evening. I'm an ice cream lover and this place was a dream come true. There were so many flavors that it was incredibly hard to choose...I eventually settled...on Brown Butter Bourbon Truffle and it was amazing--very rich, though, so have a bottle of water handy. The servings were huge. We sat out on the nice outdoor patio and enjoyed our ice cream and the summer evening. I'd go so far as to say that Toft's is an absolute must do on a trip to Sandusky!More

The cherry vanilla ice cream is by far the best ice cream known to man. Well I am normally a frozen custard kind of person we decided to try this little jam when we were visiting Sandusky. The cherry vanilla did not disappoint. Mini cherry...ice cream‘s barely have any pieces of cherry and if there are actual pieces of fruit they tend to be tiny. This delicious concoction was absolutely chock-full of cherries lots of them. I literally felt like this ice cream had 2 cups of cherries in one cup of ice cream if that’s at all possible. It was a charming pink color. The flavor was the real stand out however it was not fake tasting at all and simply tasted like fresh cherries and vanilla. It has earned a special place in my memory . Honestly it’s tragic that I won’t get to eat here again because I don’t live anywhere near this area. If you do, cherish it because it is in fact amazing.More

Tofts is a must-vist place for us when we travel to Sandusky. The ice cream is so delicious and they have tons of flavors. The portions are huge. A small is at least 2 large scoops. I only wish we had Tofts in Iowa!

Their ice cream is just amazing! This is the best ice cream we ever ate. We had the caveman chocolate and brown butter bourbon. They give you plenty of ice cream for a small.

We went to the Toft's in Port Clinton. I got the lemon blueberry cheesecake and it was the best ice cream that I've ever had! I'm not an ice cream lover, but I've been wishing ever since that I could get this again around home!...The boys working behind the counter were very nice and kept the long line moving quickly. The servings were huge! I recommend visiting.More

with over 30 flavors, if you can not find one for yourself, you just don't want ice cream. I wish we had places like this in GA but we do have Brusters which is more expensive and you get less. Two scoops - more like...4 in a small cup. So much delicious i.c. I could not finish. We always stop here on out trips to Cleveland each year as we eat at Daly's Irish pub and this is dessert. The folks who work here are friendly and helpful and patient as if you are like me, you have to look at each i.c.more than once before deciding. they were out of Bourbon truffle. Gal said it is just so popular. Plenty of inside and out side eating areas.More

Great regular ice cream with so many flavors available and huge portions. We always stop for a waffle cone. This is Ohio’s oldest dairy and definitely worth a visit for a treat. Average $5 person but huge portions

My wife and I have been eating Toft's ice cream for over 40 years. But we never had a chance to visit "the big place" in Sandusky. During this Covid-restricted summer, we set out on our quest. The ice cream was fabulous, the folks were...nice and we had plenty of social distancing on the patio. However - make sure that your eyes and stomach are communicating. I ordered a large butterscotch sundae. I ate it all but the amount made me suffer later. Next time - it will definitely be a medium. Just a word to the wise :-)More
