My husband and I love this place, it has a local, family feel. Staff are always pleasant no matter how busy it gets. Great view of the lake across the street. We've only ever gone for the ice cream; never for the bait. We will continue to go back!!

Cute ice cream shop -- an "up north" feel - great ice cream but small portions and too pricey. Has indoor seating & porch seating. In lovely area of Monona.

Chocolate malt is super - - good flavor, thick and made with premium ice cream. Get your treat and stroll across to the park opposite (warning - - as of a few weeks ago the park was undergoing a major construction job and partly closed off. You can still access the waterfront but it's not as pleasant as usual). I believe it will be completed in another month.

We rode the 15 mile lake look. We happened on this little ice cream shop about 1/2 way around. Bait and ice cream??? The ice cream was good. University of Wisconsin- Babcock Hall Dairy Ice Cream is served here. Good ice cream. Nice seating indoors and out. They serve food but we did not see where they cooked the food and the bait shop is in the back of the store. Quaint, not a destination but on the bike trail it was a welcome stop.

An interesting combination of offerings but the Ice Cream can't be beat. Babcock Hall Ice Cream is made at the UW Dairy plant and some of the best in the Midwest. Sandwiches and light meals are also available. Don't forget your fishing supplies and the day will be complete.
