No one says a bad word about Plainwell Ice Cream. During the summer we regularly drive over 10 miles for their ice cream and always get just a cone (although they sell in quarts and half gallons). I always feel I'm back in the 50s when I'm there. My kids have been going there since their favorite flavors were blue... More

Nothing too special but some interesting flavors. overall pretty straight forward ice cream place- nothing special to anyone that doesn't have a personal connection or nostalgia to the product.

A group ride of about 25 Mini Coopers stopped in for ice cream on a summer Sunday afternoon and everybody had ice cream. Lots of flavors and everybody served fast and with a smile. Lots of parking for all of the Minis. Affordable and easy to find.

This home maid ice cream is the best I've had. It's creamy & favorable & generous portions. The place has a steady stream of customers from morning til night & yet nobody stands around waiting because they are fast. A "must go to" while on vacation!

Plainwell Ice Cream is definitely a family favorite. I am embarrassed to even guess how many times we go to Plainwell Ice Cream. 3 of our 4 kids are adults and when they were too little to catch on we called it PWIC (throwing the W in to throw of our oldest) when we wanted to surprise them. I can... More

Driving from Alleghan to BC and decided to take the back roads. Was glad we did as we haven't been to Plainwell Ice Cream in a number of years. I had a banana split (made my way) and my husband had a caramel sundae. Waitresses greeted us when we walked in and we were waited on very quickly. Was so... More

If you like ice cream you need to stop at plainwell ice cream. Lots of flavors,I can't get through them all. Creamy and tasty from the first lick to the last. Just across the railroad tracks. Depending which way you go. It is a good treat not much room to eat it but cones are made to go.
