Tom’s has the best homemade mayonnaise and ice cream! Cute little place to stop that is still original!

I'm biased on this one--I've been coming here since the mid-1960s and nothing's ever changed. You walk in and the same tables and chairs are found. The same counters and interior. I guess to a certain degree, that gives you comfort as you age. My...More

I stopped at Tom’s ice cream bowl because I knew someone who recommended their milk chocolate peanut clusters. Delicious and Worth the drive 👍🏻 it’s a fun shop with an old style diner feel.

I know this is a local town favorite, but I found their ice cream not cream or decadent enough to be worth it. Nice place to visit with friends but if you’re looking for good ice cream you can find better at the grocery store.

Tom’s probably the best ice cream in Ohio. It’s been around since 1948 and has the classic dinner feel. The brownie sundae was wonderful. Highly recommend stopping if you’re going through Zanesville.

As always it was great. Whenever we want ice cream this is our go to place, you can't go wrong. The tin roofs are so good and the sandwiches, fries and soup fill you up too. Make sure you check them out when you are...More
