Reviewed 5 June 2014

This place has the best ice cream I have ever had. The old time soda shop atmosphere just adds to it along with the smiles from the staff.

“Not close by, but best on Mackinac”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This ice cream shop is a part of The Grand Hotel and therefore, service is perfection. They have a very good variety and they "scoop big", too. Much better ice cream than the fudge shops have.

“GreaT”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

they are very nice there and the ice cream was very good there as well, and if you were not sure what you wanted they gave you a little taste, and thjey would let you mix the ice cream on the cone which was cool too. and they sold fudge there and the fudge was the bomb. It was all great.
