We enjoyed the ice cream that we got here. It is not too far from the hotels off of 283. We will come back here if we are back in the Hershey area.

I don't know if they've always had the same owners, but the choices, quality and quantity hasn't changed for as far back as I can remember. Everyone can get their favorite flavor and will have more than enough, as they have really big servings! They also make family size subs that are pretty excellent. I love supporting local small businesses,... More

They make a great butter pecan and cookie and cream ice cream. They are a little on the pricey side, but the ice cream is good!

Although sandwiches are available, for us this is an ice cream stop. We especially love the flavor choices. Their portions are so large that I usually order the child's size. Although it is a walk up venue, you can enjoy your treat at tables located at the edge of the parking lot. Popular with the locals

I've been going here since I was little, and it is still one of my favorite ice cream places to visit. My most recent trip was to their location in Dauphin (just past 225/Clark's Valley). A softball team was there, so we waited in line for a few minutes. This is the one location that I know carries my favorite... More

This is a great family place with very good food. The decor is very basic and the food is great. I have there with my husband & we have done family dinners there a number of times. a little high in price on some items but the taste of the food makes up for it.

This little find was the best the whole trip! It was five minutes away from where we stayed but we would have not even found it if we had not looked at the online reviews. It seems to be a favorite spot for the locals.This little gem of an ice cream shoppe is actually a renovated house with outdoor porch... More
