It was a nice small homemade ice cream place. homemade ice cream was better then the stuff u can get in the store, I like this place as a small stop on a long road trip and on a hot day.

I would have given it 5 stars as the ice cream is good, in fact really creamy. But man, is this expensive. Another customer at the counter called the pricing shameful. So good homemade ice cream that costs too much.

The ice cream was okay. Point blank period. It lacks the luster of a Coldstone or even Marble Slab! The server didn't have gloves on in addition to handling cash. Walmart is next door... Just get some ice cream them.

Offers a variety of really good ice cream. Convenient location. Nice way to end the day... especially if it's a hot Hot Springs day.

After a hike in the park a sweet treat was on our radar. Scoops says that everything is made in house and it is fabulous. My husband cafe latte and I had pralines and cream , both outstanding! Can't wait to visit again!

My family really enjoyed the ice cream here, but I think the servers should really wear gloves. I don't like other people's bare hands touching my ice cream cone.

I had the salted caramel and it was very good. They had many flavors that looked delicious and I wish I could have had them all. As for the price it was average Ice Cream shop prices. The guy serving the ice cream was friendly and entertaining with his corny jokes. It was a fun place to visit
