The last time we were ther (summer 2016) there was a very long line. It moved steadily and the wait was well worth it.

First, the ice cream is great and they give samples. Which is nice since some flavors are unique. Second, cash only. Super nuisance. Plus they have a small attitude about it. Clearly that comes down from mgmt, seriously, just take debit.

I love all the great flavors that Mallard has to offer. Rum raisin is my fave. Great people and atmosphere.

And almost no corn syrup! I could eat 98% of the options. Per the scooper guy - if the baker makes her own oreos - then corn syrup free. If they are short on time, real Oreos are used, I am allergic to those. All...More

Unusual flavor combinations. Plus root beer, licorice, violet, etc flavors....very low key on a downtown street with parking available most of the time. Long lines in Summer, but worth it !

Natural and local ingredients. Locally owned and operated and always wild and interesting flavors. Might be the Best Ice Cream On The Planet.

Such an unusual variety of ice cream flavors with friendly staff that offer samples if you want to try an adventure bite. Fun setting and decor. The downside is the large price for a small cone.

They have the most fresh and unique flavors of home made ice cream. Fun, friendly, clean environment.

This is the best place for quality ice cream all year long. Odd and different flavors. This is a place to meet both young and old after a movie or a play or just meet.
