“Best Homemade Ice Cream”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

To be honest, I'm not really into sweets, but Max's Hazelnut & Cream ice cream on a sugar cone is to die for. I can't believe they are ending his lease in Glover Park! I always see a huge line at Max's and the BBQ place next door that the property mgmt approached to lease/expand to Max's place is never really crowded. Seems like a risky business decision, esp with such quality and history coming from Max's!

“Best Strawberry Ice Cream”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Our son wanted ice cream and he got a cone here-the best strawberry ice I've had. It was a bit expensive for a cone, but we went back the next day and all 3 of us had cones.

“Wonderful, old-fashioned ice cream”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

This is the perfect place to stop for ice cream on an afternoon out or after dinner. Max has a range of flavors, all very, very good. It is more expensive than a chain, but well worth it for the ice cream you get. To emphasize the old-fashioned flair, he also only accepts cash, not credit cards, so come prepared.

“Great ice cream”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I really enjoyed Max's. We actually enjoyed the taste of his ice cream as opposed to Serendipity in Georgetown. Can't wait to go again.
