The staff were very nice, and we just beat the rush. It was nice to sit out on the covered front porch and eat our ice cream. We got caramel cheesecake and it was delicious.

Very good ice cream. I love Blue Bell which is produced in Texas. This local ice cream was just about as good. I'll be back during my next trip to Midland, MI.

It doesn't live up to the hype it gets. Ice cream is expensive and grainy. Service was somewhat decent for us, but I've heard a lot of people have gotten incredibly rude service here.
