Great icecream but the prices are way to high. We went with the family. Our son bought so I can't tell how much it was for 6 adults and 5 children. I had a single dip, because that was the cheapest thing on the menue...More

Some of best ice cream dishes I've ever had even though they don't make their own ice cream. Recommend banana split and various sundaes. Large portions at very reasonable prices. Must stop when passing through Jackson area in the summer.

All that I can say is yum! They have so many flavors of ice cream, sundaes, and other treats. And, if you're really brave, you can get their 10 scoop sundae and get on their wall of fame.

We were told that it was a good place to go but not as good as it used to be. Well we loved it and if it used to be better I can't even imagine,

This restaurant used to make its own ice cream, but they stopped a few years ago and the quality has declined. The service was horrible when we visited (why I am giving it 3 stars) and it took forever to get our order. Good ice...More

The ice cream was delicious, as was the shake, and the atmosphere was fun. The music took us back to our teen years (the 60s). They are obviously doing something right to be in business 102 years! Will return!

Assuming you want to get two sundaes, around $10-12. I do not recommend ordering your main meal here however(read some reviews).
