“Yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Very yummy ice cream. The only complaint - i ordered a small cone for my 7 yr old and they completely overloaded it - it was so hard to eat that we had to ditch the cone and get a cup.

“Good Ice Cream with Awesome Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I love the setting of this ice cream shop right on the Mystic River next to the drawbridge. The views of the river are terrific, and you may get lucky to get a front row view of the drawbridge opening. The ice cream is very solid though not the best I've ever had. I did, however, like the variety of flavor options. Overall it's a nice treat in Mystic.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

The location is just perfect to be on their side deck overlooking the drawbridge when it opens up to let the boats through. Little kids will especially enjoy the front seat view. The ice cream is good too but it had little ice crystals in it which I do not enjoy, I prefer a creamier consistency.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

They have the best ice cream and a wide variety of flavors. The strawberry is particularly good! Even when it's crowded, the line moves quickly. Enjoy it!
