Did you scream? Ice cream or not in Old Town, you have choices from this to Pop's to Nice Cream made with fresh fruit and nitrogen, so try them all!

We enjoyed B&J's both nights we were in town. There were devious options for the vegans and non-vegans alike!

Yes, I know Ben & Jerry's is a national staple. Our experience at this location left us underwhelmed. We stopped in for ice cream in the evening after eating dinner and shopping in Old Town Alexandria. The place was unclean (trash on the floor, tables not wiped down, etc... Yes - the same large selection of fun-named ice cream flavors... More

Its Ben and Jerry's, nothing else to say!!! Happiness in a cone, or a shake or a sundae! Always a great treat on a warm day!

The place is okay, but there was a smell like sour milk that someone didn't clean up. Service was slow, in fact we didn't even stay and went to the Creamery for ice cream. I just think B&J is just a bit over rated.

Over the years I've been to Old Towne many times and have never finished the evening without a trip to Ben & Jerry's. I was recently there and had to stop. You can't beat their ice cream.

If I am having a meal in Alexandria, I usually save my dessert for B&J. The ice cream and service is always good. Young staff, but pretty good at service and serving size. A nice treat at the end of a busy day.

I have always liked Ben & Jerry's. I don't consider it the greatest ice cream I have ever had, however, there are so many flavors that are hard to resist. I do feel that their ice cream is a bit too sugary, but what the heck, I don't eat here that often. Also, being a penn state alum, and learning... More

I always have to get an ice cream cone at Ben and Jerry's when I visit Old Town Alexandria. Its the only place I can find coconut 7 layer bar ice cream!
