Most of the time the taste of the ice cream is beyond compare - incredible taste. On those days, they've earned the title "One of National Geographic's best things in the world." However, every once- in-a-while (like December 3rd 2016), the ice cream lacks flavor. It's like eating frozen air. This leads me to believe that sometimes ingredients aren't always... More

Crescent Ridge offers many flavors of the most fabulous ice cream. Their ice cream is extremely rich and creamy. Cones come in 4 sizes: tiny tot, kiddie, small and regular. The cones are huge, to say the least! The frappes come in regular and extra thick. There are several types of sundaes. I am an ice cream addict and have... More

We showed up before their posted closing hours they they said they were closed. It's ashame, and we frequent crescent ridge often. It was a Saturday evening and I tried to walk in at 7:50 pm. Apparently the ice cream business is booming and they have no issues turning down customers (even when the signs and posted websites) say they're... More

The old dependable best ice cream in the world. Get a kiddie cup or small if you're an adult--portions are generous. A cone, frappe, sundae--you can't go wrong. Sit at a picnic table, lean on your car--it's all good. Dropped cones cheerfully replaced. Yummy milk--the real stuff--indoors. Be sure to leave a tip--scoopers are young adult locals who need the...

It has always been a popular place on a hot day or night but their prices have gotten way out of hand. They sometimes have a farmers market on weekends

I did not appreciate why everyone waits in long lines for this ice cream. There are good choices of flavors, and the sundaes are overflowing with hot fudge in large 12 ounce plastic cups. Still, is it the best ice cream to warrant these ridiculous lines. I think not. I'm thinking the popularity is self perpetuating - folks see the... More

Great Local Dairy, Ice cream is the best in the area. Their Black Bear ice cream is the best, red raspberry ice cream, with Chocolate chunks and raspberry truffle in it. Also best tasting Hot Fudge. Always busy, be prepared to wait a little while, but it's worth it.

This was a nice place to go for a frozen treat. The customer service was excellent with many service windows open to take orders. They had an excellent selection of traditional and unique flavors of ice cream, plus shakes, sherberts, non-dairy sorbets, low fat frozen yogurt, and even non-dairy ice cream flavors. It is a working dairy farm, with goats... More

This is a real old fashion dairy farm with cows in the pastures and the smell of fresh cut hay in the air. A real nice place to stop with the kids for a trest

Many flavors, many choices,... but the electronic billboards don't list them. You have to go inside to find out what's what. The ginger ice cream was astonishing, but soft. We attended the weekend car show in the parking lot. Great throw back to the 60s with a worth-listening-to DJ. Fun for all ages.
