I have tried many flavors but always end up ordering Cookie Monster. It is delicious and so much fun. A kid size cup is pretty big. The atmosphere is charming. We love it.

We have been coming here for years and we love the ice cream that is made in house! Very friendly workers and it is busy most of the time. Kind of expensive for ice cream for a neighborhood institution but we still keep coming back!

What else can be said. The ice cream is made in house and is delicious albeit expensive. It's been a neighborhood institution since the 80's.

Grand Ole Creamery never disappoints! The ice cream is quality and the portions are HUGE. The service is always friendly and efficient, which can't be easy since I have yet to visit when it wasn't standing room only.

We found black walnut ice cream here. So few places seem to make it these days. Thanks friends. You have made my night.

We enjoyed the coffee, birthday cake, butterfinger and cotton candy ice cream. Large portions and friendly service, we ate here on a perfect summer night and we were able to eat outside. There are plenty of tables inside as well.

I had the sweet cream. Flavors are really a personal taste. The outside patio is the sidewalk, so yes, your leashed puppy is welcome outside. Trust me, you will enjoy it. Even people waiting outside seemed happy to wait

We were the first creamery in the Twin Cities to serve premium ice cream. For 30 years families, friends, and even tourists have been coming to our ice cream shop to take part in this piece of the local experience. We serve your traditional favorites like chocolate or vanilla, but we suggest trying one of our original flavors like "Black Hills Gold" and "Sweet Cream". We are always rotating between our over 300 flavors, so be sure to come back again and again to try them all! This location also has a pizzeria. Along with delicious pizza, we serve fresh salads and hoagies. Come grab lunch or dinner and then enjoy a cone for dessert. We also offer delivery and online ordering. We can also cater your next event, host your next party, and even offer wholesale ice cream options. Email or call us for more information.
