On our visit to Bruster's tonight, there were very few flavors available, it's Mother's Day shouldn't there be a good selection, so I ordered a reece's cup blast which was all vanilla ice cream with just a few reece's cup pieces on top...I asked if the cups were supposed to be mixed in the blast and they said yes and...

Love their ice cream. We are regulars at Brewster's love that the flavors change every month. Their ice cream rich and creamy. Our favorites are the waffle cones and the blast.

My tween daughter loves it. My wife and I don't really care for the ice cream there. Every flavor we've tried seems to be off a little. It's like they all have a wax or plastic flavor. I love peach ice cream, but I won't eat theirs. The only thing I will order is a chocolate malt, with extra malt.... More

This is a hit or miss place. Since they make the ice cream there (which is a good thing) you don't always have the same flavors. Service is ALWAYS poor, staff doesn't know what they're doing and can sometimes be flippant or rude. Price is exorbitant for what you get.

Being diabetic its nice to be able to get a bowl of ice creams and not worry too much about the sugar. This place is always busy in Summer and at other times too.

This is probably the best ice cream I have had in some time! Soft enough to eat well, and generous scoops to boot. Bring your dog! They give free ice cream for dogs, sometimes with a milk bone on top!

Every once in awhile I stop by Brewsters for a treat. It's the only place I know of where you can get a black raspberry ice cream cone. Yes they have young inexperienced help, yes it takes a while to get sometimes, but hey, you're there for a treat, relax and enjoy it.

Good ice cream and sundaes but pricey for what you get. Selection never consistent. Unless you want something specific, its cheaper to buy ice cream and toppings at a store and make yourself.

milkshakes are good but hard to get to due to other businesses. Staff is not swell trained in customer service, but they do make a good milkshake.
