They have a good variety of ice cream to choose from. They also have freezes, sundaes, shakes, many toppings and more. No seating inside but umbrellas and a few tables outside.

They have awesome ice cream here; so many flavors and good prices. They have shakes too. It's open late and their menu is online. They have discounts if you sign up for their text messages. Definitely my fave ice cream spot in the area!

My scoop of ice cream was a quarter of the size of any other Bruster's. I told the young girl who waited on me and she responded with "sorry". Very disappointed!!!!

It's nice to have real ice cream in the area! There are a million yogurt places. The ice cream was delicious and super creamy!

Fantastic selection of flavored. Ice cream usually soft but yet good. Waffle cones excellent. Little high priced! Staff good and knowledgeable.

Can't understand why this place is rated so low. They have great ice cream at a good price. Yes, as one person complained, it's a walk up window with only outdoor seating but didn't they realize that when they came? If you want to sit...More
