We always have to stop at Cold Stone to get us a good, filling dessert after a nice meal at a neighboring restaurant. Don't let their sizes fool you. They have "Like It", "Love It", and "Gotta Have It". I always get the "Like It" size in a waffle bowl and it is more than enough ice cream. My favorite... More

On my latest visit to Archer Rd. Cold Stone Creamery the ice cream was served almost melted, very soft and unappealing. All the containers in the display case appeared to have been thawed and refrozen. With so many other choices in Gainesville, I do not plan to eat ice cream here again.

My husband and I sometimes visit Cold Stone on a date night for dessert. It's always good! Friendly service too. FYI it does tend to get pretty busy in the later evening hours.

such a large variety of mixtures. I told the girl I could not decide on one of the item menus, but indicated what I wanted and she whipped up a batch of an awesome creamy concoction, with all different mixed nuts and caramel swirl. Will go back soon!

Good ice cream if you are looking for gourmet, but not if for a family outing. Geared more to young adults and those with a taste for the exotic
