We've been going to American Ice Cream for 30 years ( years ago it was a franchise chain).... the ice cream is much better since they became independent... and the price is always right!! Always sorry when it closes for the winter mid-November!

Great place to stop for ice cream, shakes, concretes, sundaes, etc. Prices are good. Picnic tables to side if you want to get out of your car to eat. No inside seating. Just a drive-in type place. Does have a drive through window.
