“Cute burger type place”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Very busy! Be prepared to wait a bit for your food. There is a lot to choose from, mainly burgers and sandwiches and ice cream for dessert (in a lengthy selection of flavors sure to please). I especially enjoyed my ice cream. I can't recall the clever name, but essentially it was blackberry and chocolate ice cream with white chocolate covered pretzels. It was delicious and worth the wait.

“Alright”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I had my hopes high, but was a little underwhelmed. It was super crowded at 2 in the afternoon and a little dirty. The ice cream wasn't spectacular and very overpriced. Good atmosphere with kids though.

“Do you like ice cream?”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This is a mainstay of Door County. You take a number when you arrive, and can sit outside or cross the road to view Eagle Bay. The ice cream is premium--no low-fat scoops here, although they do have a couple low-sugar options.

“Afternoon Snack”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We stopped by Wilson's in the afternoon to get some waffle cones (the mint fudge was delicious). Parking was a bit of a hassel, but once we got to the shop it had an old time charm and lots of options for flavors. After ordering (all ice cream orders are "to go") we sat on a bench across the street on the bay's shoreline and ate our orders. It was a great view and a nice place to relax and enjoy Ephraim's shore.

“Old Time Ice Cream”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This is one of our four must stops when we are in Door County. Its not too busy if you get there before noon. Otherwise if its a nice day "in season" be ready to wait. Wait time depends on if you want to eat or just get ice cream. Its been around a long time and it's a nice place to stop, food is good, the sort of stuff you'd expect in a place like this: burgers, patty melts, fries, etc. Ice cream is very good too.
