I have been going to gifts since I was much younger! I love the atmosphere and the many flavors of ice cream. Whenever my relatives come to Ohio they always ask me to take them to that amazing icecream place! The staff are younger but very nice.

They are very generous with portions. I order a baby cone it is about one and a half dips. Hubby I split the sundaes and share the small banana splits! Lunch menu are sandwiches and homemade soups. Once in awhile we will share the banana split for lunch.

So many flavors! Huge portions! Great prices! A bit of advice- get the small or kid size; you'll have plenty.

This local ice cream joint is a trip back in time to the glory days of ice cream shops. They have a ton of flavors to choose from, including my new favorite, Lake Erie Cookie Island Monster. Blue vanilla ice cream with chunks of cookie dough and chocolate chips. Amazingly delicious! Toft's is a must do on any trip to... More

Popular spot but the only spot. Prices are high and they should allow tasting. Good service. Good variety.

Come hungry when you visit. Portions are huge, ice cream is awesome. My family visits here often. You can get scoops, sundaes and shakes. Also they have lunch specials. If you in Sandusky this place is a must.

There is a Toft's listed under Shopping in Sandusky but it's an ice cream parlor. They do sell milk, etc. but it's pretty much an ice cream/milkshake place.
