A friend treated me to a free icecream, so I'm not sure about the pricing. The quality is okay, nothing special. Great selection of choices and friendly staff. We ate on a picnic table nearby that was clean.

I've had three baby cones in various places this summer and this was the absolute smallest. Maybe about 3 Tablespoons of ice cream. As a senior citizen I like to order smaller portions, and usually end up with more than a satisfactory amount, glad I ordered small. But Not My Dads does not fit that mold. The ice cream was...

I make a point to come here every time I come back East. They have a good selection of ice cream and we always enjoy our visit. Love Dole Whip and this has been one of the few places you could find it.

The ice cream serving sizes are huge (maybe order one size smaller than you think you want) and the staff is really friendly. There are plenty of outdoor tables in a well-kept lawn area and under the roof. If you are visiting in the area, it's well worth a stop. They service Purity brand hard ice cream and I personally...

Stopped to get family some ice cream, and was surprised by how many flavor options there were for such a tiny place! My daughter cannot have dairy, so I had her snack in hand when ordering. The woman who took our order noticed, said she cannot do dairy, and would my daughter like her favorite vegan treat? Of course, she... More

We stopped by on our trip to NY last summer and went back an additional 5 more times on the trip. Absolutely the best soft serve ice cream in the nation-hands-down! Can't wait to go back there on our next trip to NY.

Stopped here this afternoon on our way home from Ithaca. We all ordered different flavors of a Jr size cone (2 small scoops of ice cream for $2.15 each). All the flavors of hard ice cream were good and the service was OK.
