Nice old school Ice Cream parlor with a good variety and giant scoops of delicious treats. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Parking is limited, so that can be a challenge, but well worth it.

We were there in the off-season and the sign outside said they open at 7 pm. They opened a bit late on the night we were there. They ran out of some toppings that we asked for. The ice cream is always yummy but you...More

Was there for the Fireman's weekend. Have very limited flavor options. Only had cones and cups, no containers for take out. Staff was not the friendliest. Limited hours off season and they apparently close early if there is no business.

Nothing special and very expensive. Ice cream was mediocre. I had the Georgia Peach giant ice cream thingy.

Delicious! The service was great too. I couldn't decide which flavor because there were so many options, but I was glad I chose the caramel pretzel. My husband got a chocolate milkshake and enjoyed his as well.

Awesome retro feel. Quality ice cream, but a bit slow on the service. Even a a semi-slow Sunday, slow service.

This has been my favorite ice cream shop since I was a little girl which was many many years ago. Their ice cream is just delicious and their servings are very generous! They do have indoor tables with waitress service but we enjoy sitting at...More
