Absolutely amazing! Tastes just like I would make at home! Nice staff! Make sure you have cash or check because they don't take cards. I wish we had one of these where I'm from!!

Excellent ice cream, great, friendly staff. Oversized proportions, so you might want to order just one scoop instead of two!

Like the chalkboard says "you can't be sad if you're eating ice cream!" Excellent home made ice cream! Hours are incorrect on Trip Advisor - hours are M-Th noon to 9 pm & F-Sun noon to 10 pm. Don't miss this treat😄

Walmart's ice cream or any other doesn't hold a candle to Scoops. Expensive yes...........but you get what you pay for.

If you don't value your health, go ahead & eat commercial ice cream's that contain the chemical derivative of anti-freeze. Yes, it's true! Scoops ice cream is local and homemade with no nasty additives to kill you or... More
