“The best place for fun in Huron!”
Review of Putters and Scoops

Putters and Scoops
Ranked #15 of 37 Restaurants in Huron
Cuisines: American
Description: Hello!!! We are a seasonal ice cream shop and lake front that begins and ends with the summer months. Our 2017 season begins on May 13 and ends with August. We are driven to provide a fun and enjoyable place for all of Huron and our visitors. We are passionate about community partnerships to benefit other groups and business in Huron. We work hard to bring beauty to the area through flowers and an overall tidy look. While we are a seasonal business from May - Sept. ideas on how to provide more for our community are on our brain year round. The Putters and Scoops building is a small establishment built in the 1930's as a Bathhouse. Over the past 80 years, it served as a bathhouse, warming house, and a concession stand. In the past ten years, partnerships between private citizens and the City of Huron Park and Recreation board allowed improvements to be made. Both the island and the building have undergone major remodeling. We are now an ice cream shop who proudly serves locally made South Dakota State University Ice Cream. On the menu, you can also find sandwiches, salads, smoothies, fresh squeezed lemonade, 1919 tap root beer and more. Outside, your family can enjoy a round of miniature golf, paddleboats, kayaks and swimming. Come enjoy our facilities and introduce yourself to our staff! Hope to see you there this summer!

Putters and Scoops is an incredible place of fun in Huron! The staff is so friendly, the food is fantastic (try the chicken salad sandwich), and the SDSU ice cream of course is delicious. Our family loves to play mini-golf (We have a seven year old), and the course is great for young kids even to have a great time playing together. If you are anywhere close to Huron in your travels, this is a great stop with your family. If you live in Huron, this is a wonderful local business with local folks that care about the customer having a great experience.

Went here for lunch. Salads are good. They rent paddle boats and you can play mini golf right here by Lake Ravine.

I had the chicken salad on mixed spring greens, and it was super good! They put cashews on top of the salad, and they don't use too much onion in the chicken salad, like a lot of places do. The mix of cashews and creamy chicken salad was delicious. The ice cream is made at SDSU, and the flavors are decadent! Chocolate caramel revel, Blueberry Cheesecake, to name a few. Scoops are large, and you can get it in a bowl or a waffle cone. Definitely worth the calories! If you haven't been here before, Putters & Scoops also has mini golf, paddleboat rentals, and a small beach on the lake. Summer fun!

I was at an Airstream rally in Huron and as is my wont, looking for some local and interesting ice cream. Putters and Scoops sells ice cream made by the college, those majoring in dairy. Never knew I could major in "milk shakes"! Might have to audit those courses!

This place sits in a little park overlooking a lake. A bit off the road but a great place.

Stopped in on Sunday afternoon. We played a round of mini golf and had some ice cream. The mini golf course is fun but quite simple to play. The ice cream is very good.
