Everything at the Wharf somehow gets a unique charm associated with it, including this Ben & Jerry's. Ice cream was good, as ever. Service was OK. Wait time was tolerable.

Wanted ice cream after a so so dinner. The first Ben & Jerry's had nothing we wanted. Found this on the wharf. The chocolate was delicious and my husband hasn't stopped raving about the Buzz Buzz coffee.

You have to park your car somewhere else, since there is no parking on Bannisters Wharf. The place was empty when we came. Plenty of choices. Quick service.

For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of – especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores – nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.
