“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Stopped here for a sweet treat and did not regret it! The ice cream was amazing. The staff was distracted by some friends in the store but were attentive enough...

“Bad service ruins experience!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

Sad to say my review is going to be about the service that I received from this place. First of all my friend was completely skipped in line and the 2 workers started helping all the people behind us. When I asked our server (who should have asked if we were done ordering) tells us a rude way that his co worker will be the one to finally take our last order. So we waited then as my friend started speaking he rudely says " Can't hear you". After his remark my friend was a bit annoyed and answered loudly to make sure he could hear the order and the server had the gall to say he didn't like the tone we had, when at that time he had an attitude taking our order. Then he patronized us in front of other customers saying and making the situation very uncomfortable as we asked for the mangers number, which if the customer wants the managers number they should be able to speak with a manager to know exactly what kind of employees they have representing them. We were denied a number and the servers just didn't help at all. That same server kept yelling across the whole store when a phone number should have been given and that would have been the end.

All in all the ice cream experience should have been better and the server needs to take some lessons in customer service.

“Delicious, once again”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

Tried the Cubby Crunch---vanilla ice cream, LOTS of sprinkles, oreos, chocolate chips, and toffee. Might be my all-time favorite. If only our hometown ice cream parlors served something similar... Be prepared to wait in line---this place usually has a line but it moves fairly quickly. Good place to people-watch.
