Don’t miss it! Huge portions! Small = 3 scoops - try at least 2-3 flavors! Don’t miss the seasonal specials. Great service! No sugar added cinnamon caramel pecan - you won’t believe it’s healthy. Consistently wonderful. Original location still open 5-10pm in season.

We stopped in for quick milkshakes and what they prepared far exceeded what we expected. The ice cream was fantastic and the milkshakes were amazing.

Very busy most afternoons and nights and especially in hot weather. Probably Monday night may be slowest. You could call them and ask.
