We always get ice cream, sundaes, blizzards, etc. Generous with toppings. Long lines move quickly as there are many people on duty.

I will probably never go back. We stopped by at like 9:30 and the staff was utterly annoyed that people were coming in.

Nice little place for ice cream and snacks. They have a large selection of ice cream flavors and toppings. Our hot fudge sundaes were very good.

Servers and food no issues! Took 40 minutes from time of order to get one burger. Seems like staff in the back needs help or something.

There's little debate that this place has GREAT ice cream. It's delicious. I've been a loyal customer for years and years - despite the dank interior, I've always come back. I've avoided writing a review because I always felt like the quality of the ice...More
