The best place to get ice cream milk shakes around. Get all kinds of milk shakes this is cheese cake milk shake with a slice of cheesecake on it.

This place is amazing. The milkshakes were a bit pricey, but they tasted amazing. Plenty of room to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Would definitely go back

These overpriced shakes with a couple of cookies on top are not worth the wait or the price. Service is extremely slow, not enough shake making machines. Don't waste your time or your money for this overhyped disappointment.

I really want to give a 4 out of 5 because of the prices and the wait time here, but I can’t because the product is amazing. You are going to wait an hour or so for your shake, so be sure to plan for...More

The yard makes specialty milkshakes and sells them for $13 a pint and $17 a quart. Standard milkshakes are $6 a pint. Their prices are high, and you will wait an hour for your milkshake(s) to be made. There is nearly no seating; prepare to...More

The experience is worth the wait; however, I’ve always tried to get there as close to opening time as possible as that seems to reduce the wait tremendously.
