The only drawback to this place is not enough seating and not as big of a selection of flavors as Richardson's main place in Middleton. But otherwise, the ice cream tastes great and there is plenty to do in and around Jordan's.

My wife and I stopped here the other day, i had maine black bear and she had blueberry pie icecream. I liked mine better than hers, but then again I made mine a sundae and she just had a regular bowl. Definately try the place out if you haven't been there. And when you're done your ice cream, go back... More

Great creamy Richardson'a ice cream in a strange venue - just after you enter Jordan's furniture. If you're going there anyway, or to their IMAX theater, it's a no brainer. Sometimes we just go for the ice cream.

I grew up going to Richardson's in Middleton. There ice cream is always consistently creamy and the flavors are well done. This location you get to watch the water show while you and the family have a treat. Or you can watch the ropes area. Start with the best ice cream, plus things to do and enjoy.

What can I say, this place is great. We've been coming here for years. Icecream is awesome! If your short on cash you can just grab an icecream and walk around with the kids and see the animals. If you wanna spend a few bucks, the batting cages are always fun or the mini golf. Can't go wrong with Richardsons!

Richardson's is by far the best ice cream in the area. Separate check out for take out of milk and half gallons of ice cream makes it very quick and easy. If eating in, fun to watch the ropes course at Jordan's furniture.

I love all the varieties Richardsons offers. I've tried nearly every flavor there, I loved most of them and those I didn't love I liked a lot. My son has a banana allergy, and when I told them they took it very seriously.
