The Snack Shack is our favorite Ice Cream Stand in the Wilkes-Barre area. The hard and soft ice cream are both very good. I usually get a chocolate or twist soft serve with rainbow sprinkles. My wife likes the hard ice cream and used to...get Cotton Candy but now likes the Milky Way flavor. They also have shakes, sundaes, splits and floats etc... Dog and cat treats are on the menu too. The staff is very nice, it's clean and the prices are reasonable. They have picnic tables and off street parking.More

You won't find tastier ice cream anywhere in the NEPA area. My only complaint with the Snack Shack is that they still do not accept credit card or debit payments. That is a bit of an inconvenience in this day and age.

We enjoyed the Ice Cream here at a very reasonable price. The people are friendly and helpful. The ice cream is very creamy and delicious. It's easy access to get it and enjoy.

Best Gelati to satisfy my sweet tooth. I prefer Mango flavor for anything so obviously I had a small Mango w/ vanilla.. I'd hate to see another larger size container. Delicious, filling & most satisfying.

New management X3 have ruined this former best ice cream shop. Last time I went there, they served me half a scoop on a broken cone; I should have returned it but instead vowed to never return. The time before I had a hot fudge...sundae and they served it with a soupspoon! My spouse had a banana boat that was served in a ice cream cookie tray and soup spoon! Rotten how the new owners would put profit before service and quality! I predict they will be selling the shop or going out of business soon. Do not waste your time or money!More

I will never go here again in this lifetime! I saw one of the girls eating ice cream from on of the ice cream Tubbs and sticking the spoon right back into it again. She didn't notice that I was watching her. Stay clear of...this place.More

We had a sleep over birthday party for my daughters 7th birthday. I was 8 months pregnant, and was not up to doing a ton of planning to make sure the party was entertaining for the girls. We frequently go to the Snack Shack for...ice cream during their season (may I add the best ice cream in town). I saw that they catered parties I spoke with the owner of the establishment I explained my circumstances, and she was more than accommodating with my request. She ensured me that the party would be a success and that I would have nothing to worry about that they would take care of everything all I needed to do was pick a theme. I choose to have nails, face painting, and a cheer/dance party along with ice cream for the girls. It was the best decision I could have made the girls had a great time, the staff was amazing with the girls and left no mess for me to clean up. They had a dance routine choreographed for the girls and they made a huge birthday banner that they were able to run through. They staff did a great job with the nail designs and facing painting. Thank you Snack Shack for a great party!!!!!!More
