The real deal. Thick and creamy soft serve frozen custard all the way down to the bottom of the cone doesn't come without a price but it's well worth every penny.. You won't be disappointed.

Love Swirlies. Really good soft ice cream, shave ice, and always friendly staff. The music from the 1950s and 60s may seem corny to the younger crowd, but it adds to the experience. It's just a fun place for anyone from 8 to 80!

Nothing like going to the local Ice Cream joint to enjoy soft serve Ice Cream. Been to Swirlies on numerous occasions. They never fail to please. Servings are reasonably sized and economical. Delicious flavors with a great number of topping choices. Also, Ice Cream is not the only choice with other frozen deserts available. Location is easy to get to... More

Ice cream is excellent. Location is retro and very cool. Medium cone was gigantic. One goes to this type is establishment for a delicious, enjoyable family treat. It sucks when you take your grandkids out for ice cream cones only to have the experience ruined by a lady employee who is obviously miserable. And BTW, it was a rainy day.... More

Swirlie's is open!! We took our two Shih Tzus - Bandit and Daisy May to have their first Pup Cup and were once again totally pleased with the ice cream and experience. There is always a long line to wait in but it moves quickly and the staff are so pleasant. Always enjoy looking at the vintage cars in the... More

This is really rich soft serve, lots of toppings, super sundaes, and you can bring your dog to get a pup cup! Super outdoor seating, weather permitting, they show free movies so it's a great family place too. My favorite is the Turtle Sundae...decadent!

This has quickly become a local hangout and landmark. The ice cream and service are always good. On Saturdays, enjoy the classic cars or better yet drive up in your 76' convertible.

We love Swirlie's ice cream. The service is friendly and fast, the selection of treats cannot be beat, and the best part is the location, which the owners have managed to make almost park like. There is always a breeze in the summertime and you can sit at one of the tables with umbrelllas or in the shade while enjoying... More

A nice evening out for good custard, a movie playing on a large screen to entertain families and customers as we waited in a very long line. Of course the long line indicates its popularity! There are also many vintage cars in the parking lot to be viewed. The Swirlie's staff were very pleasant and working hard serving all the... More

fun ice cream stop! Typical soft serve ice cream in many non-typical flavors like black raspberry. Also has a lot of shaved ice flavors too – really hit the spot for us! Two small cones and a small shaved ice was just over $7.
