Family place with friendly staff and wonderful flavors. A bit pricey but worth it. Clean, also has an outside eating area. The kids loved it. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

They give you a very generous scoop, with a mini bonus scoop on top to try a different flavor. Good thing we were just passing through or I would a regular.

We tried Over the Top for the first time, and fell in love! We used the drive-thru, so we didn't get the whole feel of everything they have to offer. We each got a "blizzard". The regular size was perfect for our after dinner snack!....More
