I had the peanut butter blast and it was DELICIOUS! It was probably a whole days calories but it was worth it. The ice cream was smooth and creamy and the toppings were proportioned with the ice cream amount so I did not run out of one before the other.

Family owned Gannon's has been around forever. The home made ice cream is so tasty and creamy. We live in Florida and when we come home we have to get there. The artist painted the walls of the original Gannons's like ice cream cones. The ice cream birthday cakes are always a hit. Nice atmosphere to relax and enjoy a... More

Girl that waited on us was very nice and the ice cream was pretty good but not happy with... More

One of my co-workers wanted some ice-cream. During our lunch we (3 of us) decided to walk to Gannon's for a treat. The line was out the door but it went relatively quickly. There were so many ice creams to choose from. The staff was friendly and my ice cream was delicious so I was happy. Sometimes it is worth... More

Based on RAVE reviews by trusted friends we drove past about 5 other ice cream shops until we reached Gannon's. It's easy to find and there is seemingly plenty of parking, but well-informed crowds fill it up. We were told the lines can be long, but, on this 90-degree day, we only had 4 people in front of us. The... More

I had peppermint patty ice cream which tasted like mint chip and my wife had a Milky Way Sundae which was good. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced

This place takes ice cream to a new level. They are always experimenting with new flavors and it is homemade. They welcome their customers by name and everyone seems happy to be working there.

The ice cream here is decent. But the prices are high. We ate at the Gannon's in the valley and the neighborhood is questionable but there was inside seating and tables.

Best ice cream around. Long lines but moves fast. Go to sundae, peanut butter perfection ice cream topped with marshmallow and peanut butter sauce. I always order the same thing because it's that good.

I've searched out delicious ice cream all over the country and this is one of my favorites. Their chocolate is good and chocolaty, all ice creams are perfectly creamy, their milkshakes are beyond gigantic and the list goes on. These photos were from a visit to their downtown location, which is not on trip advisor, the only thing that I... More
