Service is a little slow, but the wait is well worth it for quality ice cream and a variety of options available (sundaes, banana splits, etc. Price is avg and fair; servings are generous.

We have stopped here for ice cream, I don't know how many times. My girls love it especially. The parking is tight because it is SO busy every time we go. Really great place!

Stopped here after finishing our ride on the Creeper Trail. They have plenty of bicycle parking and many picnic benches. We had a nice cone and relaxed while watching everyone else come back from their rides.

This is a wonderful place to sit and rest after getting off the Creeper! The staff is nice and the place is very quite even on a main road.

Stopped by for a cold ice cream on a hot day. Ice cream is great with lots of offbeat flavors like Salted Carmel bananas foster, and Cheesecake caramel cookie monster crunch. Highly recommended. Go soon, as they are retiring and it may not be there...More

I don't think that the ice cream is homemade. They have at least 20 different flavors and their one scoop size is two scoops of ice cream. Their phone number is 276-475-5319 if you would like to call for specific... More
