I read all the reviews before a weekend trip, and I knew I had to visit. I was not disappointed! Delicious flavors, huge selection, and portions that are unbelievable. I tried the Lake Erie Cookie Monster...a new favorite! Good thing I am not a local, or frequent visits might turn into a problem for my waistline. Try it...you won't be... More

Toft's is such a great place. It is a small town dairy where the ice cream is made right there in the dairy. The inside has some cool little chairs that remind me of old school desks from a school house. Any time I get the chance I go!!!! They have soooo many flavors to choose from! Their portions are...

To find Toft's in Sandusky you have to travel to the Edge of the city far from the main drag and even farther from Cedar Point, That doesn't really matter. Right in front of the Dairy its self is the parlor. Not only do they serve AMAZING ice cream but they are a part of not only local history but... More

On my trip to Ohio visiting one of my good friends, he took me to Toft's Ice Cream Parlor. I must admit that was some of the best ice cream I have ever had; so if you're ever in that are you must make time to go visit that parlor.

After a day at a local water park, we decided to visit Toft's for ice cream. Personally, I have NEVER seen so many ice cream choices!!! Our family (4 adults and 2 children) made our choices and enjoyed sitting inside the Parlor. One adult chose a LARGE cup of ice cream, and he devoured it! There had to be 6-8... More

This place has great ice cream and many friendly faces. So many choices but the staff is very patient. There are literally dozens of ice cream flavors. You can choose a cup or a cone and eat inside on vintage benches, take it to your car, or enjoy your ice cream on one of the many umbrella covered tables just... More

Tofts dairy is a Sandusky staple. The ice cream is ridiculously delicious, and the portion sizes are crazy big, so mind what size you order. This is the only ice cream my family eats and since it's local, we stop in quite often.

There is a Toft's listed under Shopping in Sandusky but it's an ice cream parlor. They do sell milk, etc. but it's pretty much an ice cream/milkshake place.
