We come to BI every year for a Weekend and every night after Dinner we take a walk here for the best IceCream you can find! Their Hot Fudge Sundae is the best on the Island, with the Fudge and Whipped Cream also being freshly homemade!! Long lines move very quickly and the Employees are always terrific!! A must try!

Great selection. Place is always so busy (long lines) but they move you through quickly. The staff is great. Greet you with a smile, never make you feel rushed (even with the long lines) and answer all questions with free samples. Totally hooked us up on our peanut butter syrup. After biking the island, you deserve it! Stop in and... More

Coffee ice cream (with something else..) was delicious. Great hot fudge. Huge portions. Fast service - sit inside of it's raining or under umbrellas outside. Best ice cream!!

Located right in town, there is always a line here which moves along quickly. Lots of flavors and cones as well as some baked goods. My husband wished there was black raspberry ice cream, but alas the only black raspberry is frozen yogurt!

There's just something special about this place! Could it be that the Hot Fudge Sauce and Whipped Cream are made fresh on site? Yes! The baked goods are also made from scratch. I asked! They are! The brownies are a favorite of mine.

Been coming here for 30 years and great to bring kids for a special ice-cream. Lots of choices and delicious. When there is little happening on a quiet or rainy day making a special trip for an ice cream can keep houseguests occupied.

I highly recommend the brownie sundae! Best one I have ever had! Sundae includes two good size scoops of ice cream of your choice, homemade whip cream, home made topping of choice(hot fidge etc), candy topping of choice, and multiple pieces of a homemade brownie! Ice cream cookie sandwich looks good but the cookie is not super soft. Cost is... More

I'm not complaining about the ice cream because it's very good but I can buy two half gallons of Turkey Hill ice cream at Big Y when I'm home for the price of one ice cream cone here. In case people don't know, that's what it is - mass produced Turkey Hill ice cream.

After walking from town to the Mohegan Bluffs (up hill) and back (3 miles!) I decided I deserved some ice cream. As an ice cream connoisseur it took me a while to determine where I would find ice cream nirvana. As luck would have it I saw the sign for the The Ice Cream Place, looked at the smiling faces...

The line out the door says it all... has the best selection of ice cream on the island and probably one of the few places where a Ben & Jerry's store is second fiddle to its competition. The line will move fast.
