I have had the privilege of tasting ice cream in many countries including freshly made offerings in Italy. I can safely say that Glacier rates very highly in the freshly made category. Whether sorbet or ice cream, you cannot go wrong here. Take advantage of the taste test to expand your experience. Very friendly service, and often not crowded.

Lots of choices, fairly quick service, good ice cream; place seemed kind of unkempt and a bit dirty (especially the waffle cone maker) and without enough seating so we ate in the car; staff helpful but without smiles - seemed kind of put out when we asked for some sample tastes of the different flavors before purchasing

My wife and I stopped in here on a recently weekend visit Boulder. Wow this ice cream was great! It was easy to decide what you wanted because they let you have samples. My favorite was the praline.

This is some of the best IceCream ever! They let you taste test before you buy. That may or may not help as it makes it harder to decide! My favorite was the praline IceCream. OH MY! Went twice (so far) during a two week stay in Boulder.

Plenty of choices and very creamy ice cream. We're in town for one night and sought Glacier out rather than opt for any chain place and were not disappointed. Decor is at best basic and there's not much seating inside or outside, but the service is efficient and friendly and the ice cream definitely on the rich side. Lots of... More

Glacier ice cream did a Sundae bar at my daughter's wedding. The ice cream and Gelato were wonderful and Daniel Arkles was great to work with.
