If there is a line, it's worth the wait. Great proportions for the price & the ice cream is soooooo yummy! I had the Cappuccino Cruch & the Minty Mint Chip - fabulous! My family members each had different flavors & everyone loved theirs, too.

We've been here several times over the past few years and it's always good. The ice cream is very fresh with real fruit you can't get in store-bought ice cream. The servers always greet you with a smile and make you feel welcome. Go on...More

Wonderful delicious ice cream. Love this place. Very affordable. My grandson love to make a trip here when visiting Nana & Papaw. My favorite are their banana splits.

Had the brownie sundae. It was delicious. This place also made it to my short list of places I need to return to when back in the area. Hand scooped ice cream. Brownies. Waffle bowls. GO!

They have many unusual flavors, along with the traditional. I believe they make their own ice cream. Delicious!!
