Erikson's ice cream is the old fashioned ice cream place that use to be more prevalent. On a hot summer night, the parking lot is packed with families, friends, and ice cream addicts. There are many flavors to chose from that are all produced right on site. Erikson's is only open from the middle of April until the end of... More

It is getting to be the end of the season and not all flavors are available. This does not mean that the size or flavor of the remaining flavors is any different. Great ice cream, huge sized cones!

Erikson's Ice Cream is an experience! It has been Around forever! You simply drive up to a big parking lot. The building has three windows where you order your ice cream, frozen yogurt or soft serve. There are picnic benches available behind the building. You do not go for the atmosphere but do go for the great ice cream!

I went with my children and had a wonderful frappe. Kids ordered ice cream. All tasted rich and creamy. They have quite an impressive selection of flavors to choose from. Ample parking. This is a cash/check only establishment so come prepared. Reasonable prices. Punic tables out back.

Really worth a visit, wonderful ice cream, great value for money. Old style, road side ice cream palour that people drive a long way to visit. Best in the area by a long way

Years ago I brought my young daughter for an Ice cream cone and it was poorly scooped by a teen manning the window. My daughter tried her best to negotiate this ball of ice cream resting precariously on the cone and it dropped to the ground. When I asked it they could provide a "do-over" and this time try and...

Ice cream is very good, and ppl working do a great job. I found them to be a bit higher that what they used to be, like for the quantity you get verses price. That was disappointing. But they have been around sense I was a kid. Still tastes great

April to October my family makes regular pilgrimages to the best ice cream store in metro-west. Butter-crunch for mom, wintergreen chip and oreo for the sisters, moose tracks for auntie and raspberry sorbet for me. "Mmmm" follows every lick,
