Outstanding, historic, great ice cream!

I have visited Tom's many times. The nuts, which they roast, are the best I've tasted. I actually mail them to friends! Love the home-baked ham sandwichs.

Loved the ice cream and the fresh peanuts they made. My children loved the huge bowls of ice cream they got to take down. Will visit again.

We had been to Tom's before and had to go back. It is a small hole-in-the-wall place but a local favorite. They have sandwiches but we have only had ice cream there. I love strawberry sodas and not many places have them anymore. Tom's was good but no strawberries, just syrup. Portions are huge. Don't think it has changed much... More

I live in Zanesville and have visited Tom's a few times. It's always a treat!!! The ice cream is good and the service is good. The only Problem is that there isn't much space.

Great ice cream! Friendly and quick service! Nice area to eat in or take out. Also sells candy and nuts by the pound and I team by the quart, gallon or three gallon.

This is a great place to get ice cream. It's the best home made ice cream. The food is also good and not too expensive. They also have candy and nuts.

I spent 3 years in Zanesville as a child. We had a tradition of going to Tom's almost every Sunday evening for ice cream. Even then, I knew that this was the best ice cream ever. It still is. And they don't give you skimpy little portions. They are generous with the toppings, too, as the marshmallow creme is always... More

Going toTom's is like taking a step back in time. Ice cream varies tfrom OK to very good depending on the flavor, but the nuts and candies are always good..
