While it's true, that I will eat pretty much any ice cream and I don't think it's ever too cold for ice cream, Ample Hills makes some pretty spectacular ice cream. I've not been bold enough to try some of the more unusual flavors, but all the ones I have tried have been outstanding. If you're there in the fall,... More

Doesn't get much better than this...yes, and we're talking all around the city, not just Brooklyn. This is their original spot, the "new" branch on Union & Nevins, just off the Gowanus canal is much bigger and they have all the flavors all the time along with special flavors from time to time. There is a roof dining area, but... More

Such interesting flavors and they taste great! The line can be pretty long, but it moves fast. They will give you tastes, but don't take advantage because the people on line will not be amused.

To write a review is an understatement, you have to experience it.....One of the best ice cream shops in the area.

some of the best ice cream in the city - the gooey butter cake flavor reminds me of going to St Louis to see family a lot when I was growing up, and the chocolate milk and cookies flavor is also amazing. This location is really nice, tho if it's a nice day the location in Gowanus has a really... More

I've been to Ample Hills several times now with visiting friends and family and we've never been disappointed. Every flavor we've tried is delicious. Salted Crack Caramel is my particular favorite. I know it's gotten a lot of press, but it's just that spectacular, though as someone else said here, it's not for the faint of heart. It's intense! Peppermint... More

Ample. Hills is a fun ice cream pallor especially when taking my grandkids! They are all overwhelmed by the amount of flavors offered. The staff was extremely patient and helpful in dealing with all the kids. I appreciated that very much. Yes, it's crowded but it is one of the best places for ice cream in Brooklyn ! They have...
