“BEST... ICE CREAM... EVER!!!!”
Review of Gannon's Ice Cream

Gannon's Ice Cream
Ranked #1 of 21 Dessert in Syracuse
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Gannon's has by far the best ice cream I have ever tasted, and I am a big ice cream fan. They always come up with new flavors and they are consistently delicious. As a bonus, the funny ice cream cartoon murals are a hoot. Bottom line, do not pass the opportunity to taste their ice cream You will definitely not be disappointed!

Of the many good ice cream places in the greater Syracuse area, I think Gannon's is the best. For me, their Valley Drive location is quite out of the way as I live on the other side of town, but once in a while I'll make the special trip, as it is worth it.

The quality of the ice cream is excellent, and you will find that they offer some flavors of their own that you won't find anywhere else. They offer both soft and hard ice cream, but to me, since soft ice cream is somewhat of a standard commodity you can get anywhere, it's a shame to come here and not try their homemade hard ice cream.

There is some indoor seating available so if you want to get out of the summer heat to eat your ice cream, you can do so. Don't expect table service, though, this is not that kind of place.

Here's a suggestion: Webster's Pond is only a few blocks away. Consider getting a cone or dish of ice cream at Gannon's and going to the pond to eat it and watch the ducks and geese. The pond is free and it's a very pleasant place to enjoy your ice cream.

I love this place!! The only thing about this place that's negative is their lack of sugar free options.

We have been going to Gannon's for years. Never been disappointed. Everything is excellent - shakes (peanut butter -- yum!), flurries, soft serve, hard ice cream. You can't go wrong!

If you like Ben & Jerry's, you will love this place. It has a very large selection of homemade ice cream which makes it hard to choose from. What I like best about the ice cream is that it is loaded with stuff and textures, like lots of strawberries, or chocolate chips or peanut butter cups, fudge sauce, caramel sauce, etc. They really know how to fulfill an ice cream fantasy! They also have plain ice cream varieties for those that prefer it that way. I recently moved 35 minutes away and truly miss the ability to stop here frequently. I wish they would put a store in northern Onondaga County.
