You will definitely enjoy your ice cream. I had vanilla and it was delicious. The best tasting ice cream I have had in a long time. All of my family also enjoyed what they had. You will not be disappointed. The servers were very friendly.

Both of us said that we haven’t had as good an ice cream sundae since we were kids, and that was a long time ago! Generous portions of very tasty ice cream with all the toppings you expect at really reasonable prices. Nostalgia on display...More

Ah, what's not to like about ice cream, especially when you can get an old-fashioned banana split, complete with three flavors of ice cream, three sauces, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry on top! This place is fantastic and the service is friendly and efficient.

Had a coupon so gave it a try. I thought even with the coupon it was pricey and a small portion. Place wasn't super busy, so that should have told us something. Go to Meyers or Sweet Frog, we like them both better!

They have many unusual flavors, along with the traditional. I believe they make their own ice cream. Delicious!!
