Our family of 4 enjoyed various ice cream here. I asked just for a single scoop and found it to be what other places maybe call 2 scoops so you really get your money's worth. The ice cream was delicious. It was a long wait because there was a family of 3 ahead of us who each ordered a milk... More

We always eat at Checkers when we stay at Calistoga. They accommodate our group of 9 or 10 without a problem, and the service and food are very good.

especially on a 100 degree day!! the shop was cool, the young employee engaging, the yogurt excellent with almonds, and choco/caramel sauce. The serving was very large and the price reasonable (much cheaper than the yogurt shop I frequent in Santa Rosa)

We stopped off in Calistoga while touring the valley. We parked in Lincoln Ave and started to stroll around when we saw Scoops and Swirls and headed in. It was very refreshing to get a cone and wander around the town, although a few shops don't like you to walk in with ice cream. My ice cream, pistachio, was wonderful... More

Not outstanding but a nice little ice cream on the main street. Found the area restaurant's homemade ice cream to be better but this is quick and satisfying.

This was the only outdoor ice cream option in Calistoga. It was okay, really nothing special about it. But it was a beautiful night and it's hard to replace walking down the street on a warm night eating an ice cream cone.

Stopped by because my daughter had a craving for ice cream. Everything was fine, it was very clean and the ice cream was good. The lady was pleasant. 100% of the teenage girls I spoke with loved it.

located at the end (or beginning) of town, the chocolate peanut butter ice cream cone hit the spot after a hot walk.
