Firewood ice cream, the best! Good service for a small venue! Better during the spring & summer seasons!

No reason to complain when visiting this ice cream parlor that is found approximately 40 minutes south of Anchorage. A nice stop for a tasty treat. Courteous and clean with decent sizes of ice cream - yum.

I've been going to this ice cream shop for years. THE best fireweed ice cream I've tasted. Also, the best ginger and cinnamon ice cream! This is a little shop in a tiny strip mall on the New Seward Highway. It is at the entrance road into Girdwood AK. The parking is always full and can be difficult to navigate... More

A must go to because you can get and try fire-weed ice cream, and lots of different kinds of berry ice cream too. Nothing like this ice cream anywhere in the lower 48.

The Ice Cream Shop has a great selection of good ice cream and sherbets, in portion sizes for all ages, and good espresso coffee too. Very friendly atmosphere and very accommodating staff.

I tried the fireweed-and-honey cream, while my family stuck to more typical options. We all agreed that the ice cream was delicious, and the servers could not have been nicer. If you get the munchies between Seward and Anchorage, this is the place to stop.

Our family stopped in this ice cream shop after hiking the Winner Creek Trail. Yes, ice-cream was $3.50 per scoop, but we noticed that is about the price of any other ice cream shop in the places we traveled during our stay in AK. The ice cream was great. My favorite was the "Moosetracks" flavor. My husband and daughter enjoyed... More
