We recently moved to the area and this is easily our favorite place to get ice cream. They have numerous flavors and a very friendly staff.

Absolutely the best ice cream - and the atmosphere is just as good! It's great to take a walk around the historic square and enjoy a fresh ice cream cone from Beth Marie's!

One of the hottest spots for ice cream in both locations. The downtown Denton on the Square location is popular with locals, tourist and college students. Three cases full of all kinds of wonderful flavors like Beth's Raspberry Truffle, my husband's favorite and during the holiday season my favorites of eggnog and pumpkin. The rest of the year I like... More

Quaint place, unique decor, fun. I've never seen or heard of the flavors they have there. My grandchildren love it. I've tried several of the flavors. The place is always busy, very popular. A little pricey for a scoop. You are paying for the atmosphere and flavors.

Can't go to Denton and not visit Beth Marie's. Homemade ice cream and lots of variety. It's just a slice of heaven

Reminds me of ice cream fountains that I used to go to as a child. Great staff! There is always a line but it usually moves quick. Great flavors!!

Great ice cream, too expensive. Sold by the ounce which is weird. Staff is nice. Always clean and tidy.

Visited as part of an ice cream social event. Tables are small and not really set up for larger group gatherings. Good selection of flavors to choose from, however did not notice any dairy free options. Ice cream was good and portion size was good too. Staff was friendly, however it was way too warm inside for the weather, and... More

How can you not like old fashion ice cream? Unique flavors indeed! This as close as you can come to an original soda fountain shop. The smell of ice cream hits you the second you open the door to this establishment and stays with you when you leave. It's a destination place on the square.

Beth Marie's is set up to be an excellent five-star place. The old fashioned ice cream shop is located on the old town square in Denton. The atmosphere there is fun. The shop itself does have a throwback feel once you pass through the front door. The bold black and white checkered floor catches your attention. The heart-shaped Victorian iron... More
