This place is top-notch from start to finish! We stopped here in the morning to indulge in some sweetness. We tried three different pastries, a bacon and cheese scone, and a pecan shortbread cookie. Each one was delicious. Later in the day we returned to have strawberry cheesecake ice cream and praline pecan ice cream. The ice cream is made... More

Spent some quality time with the family as we each enjoyed a different flavor of Clear River Ice-Cream--excellent!! Had we discovered this place sooner, we'd have eaten lunch as well. The menu looked wonderful and there were several enjoying a variety of sandwiches they provide. Prices were average and the unique way of charging per ounce for ice-cream (as is... More

Was looking for a latte and smoothies but so many coffee shops close at 5pm. Found Clear River instead. Great selection of ice cream, shakes, coffee drinks, cookies, and even kolaches! Don't let the line out the door stop you...It goes fast.

Oh my goodness this was amazing ice cream. You must visit this place when in Fredericksburg. It defies amazing, and is beyond amazing. The ice cream is delicious and flavorful. And the decor is reminiscent of an old soda shop from the 50's. Come to this place...I hear they have regular food too, but who can eat that when the... More

Yummy, cute place to stop when you need a break from shopping and wandering around Fredericksburg. The turtle brownie was delicious!

This was perfect for a quick bite in between shopping. We shared the king sandwich, but it was average. The chips were the best part. The ice cream was good but very expressive; almost $8 for two single scoops.

Nice 50s old style atmosphere. I tried the amaretto/peach/pecan ice cream. It won an award some years ago, and was delicious. The ice cream girl could have been more engaging and helpful with taste requests and I wish they could have kept the tables cleaner, being such a small space how hard could that be?

We really loved eating here. The sandwiches were delicious. The cookies are huge and very good, the peanut butter cookie was our favorite! Then there's the awesome ice cream. The hot fudge sundae was amazing, as well as the strawberry cheesecake ice cream. They have many other food and dessert items as well. This was by far our favorite place... More

We worked up an appetite checking out the shops and main street and were drawn in by the sign that promised home made ice cream. They had a good selection and we chose buffalo tracks which had all sorts of goodies in it. We also got a carrot cake cookie with icing that was very unique to me. I love... More
