Yes, the basic flavors are there but it is the special inventions of flavors that draws me there. This Thanksgiving it was Sea Salt Caramel that hit the spot. Always a few new creations on their menu.

Great hometown feeling. My grandkids love it....and so do I! I love the mint chocolate chip! My grandkids love the gummy worms!

Ice cream was good, not great. The ice cream used in the sandwiches had better consistency and taste than the scooped. Shakes were bland.

The overall taste of the ice cream no longer tasted like it used to. It seemed the flavor is more inferior.

I work right across the street so I look at it every day and think of how good it is. I have been disciplined and only gone once...I walked outside and smelled fresh waffle cones!

Hard to find these old style walk up to the window ice cream places. The ice cream is very good and a great stop after a game or on a summer evening.

The best place to get a good thick shake. They also have great hand scooped ice cream. My grandson loves the free small children's cone.
