Came for lunch and had chili dogs. The chili looked like dog food and the dog was one of those red cheap dogs that was absolutely nasty. The ham sandwich was ok but I will not be back. The banana split was the only positive...More

I love this true piece of Shoals history. Everything stays the same here. Love getting the chili dogs, fries, and ice cream. Sandwiches are made special with a little love. Don't miss this. It's a must do.

A Florence classic. My mother worked here as a teenager and the menu or decor probably hasn't changed since but it's a must try.

This ice cream / sandwich shop is an icon in historic downtown Florence. This shop offers the basics, but it is a local fave for sure!

We only ordered ice cream. It was great & the milkshakes were a perfect size (not ginormous). Suggestion: outdoor seating would be awesome for to-go customers.

Trowbridge has been a Florence fixture for decades, known largely for its ice cream. Personally I like the pimento and the egg salad sandwiches. Great place for lunch but always crowded at noon. takeout is always a possibility though.

This is a place you must experience! Trowbridges has been around for a LONG time! It was the hang-out for the high school students before 'fast food'! But you got your food fast! And your soda, shake, or malt! According to most people from Florence,...More
