Swirls is definitely my favourite ice cream joint in the Hat. They have an insane huge menu. Service can be slow because of its popularity. I sure wish that people waiting in line wouldn’t bring their dog with them or at least keep them from...More

Swirls is always an anticipated treat for our family, it is fun to line up and read through the options for ice cream flavors and deciding what we want! The prices are reasonable, just make sure you bring cash,

Love when this store opens in the Spring. Great ice cream and lots of selection. Pricey compared to Dairy Queen, however much better quality and worth the extra money.
