Good quality soft ice cream, clean restaurant with a friendly staff. Lots of flavors to choose from. Very generous portions. Sandwiches available, but never had one.

We love the food and staff at Sweet Retreat! So many ice cream choices to pick from. My daughter's favorite is the flavor burst, which is vanilla ice cream with a choice of several flavors swirled in with it. I love the Wow Cow, which is a low cal option (flavors change daily).

There is a variety of soft serve ice cream offerings here served up efficiently with a smile. I like that you go inside to order and that there is indoor and outdoor seating.

Honestly, I never ever thought that ice cream or frozen soft serve yogurt, or a malt could be tasteless-but this place had them all. We just wanted a quick ice cream to satisfy our tastebuds after a quick lunch while traveling. Well, this place seemed to be the only one around and was also mentioned to us from our server... More

Most people don't know that they serve a lunch that has a limited selection but all are good. Hot dogs, Pulled Pork and a few other things. Friendly, fast, crowded and GOOD.

This is a small and friendly ice cream store. They work hard to help customers quickly. This is not always the case when ordering ice cream elsewhere. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do not offer anything out of the ordinary.

We have lived in the area for years and have always loved their ice cream. Great taste and large portions at a great price. This past year my husband became acquainted with the owner through his job. As a germ freak I was very pleased to hear that she is quite meticulous in her cleaning practices and requirements for Sweet... More
