We were in the mood for milkshakes after leaving NYC. The taste was good, but not worth the price. They had a large variety of ice cream that is made in house.

The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because of the value. One scoop without toppings is $5 so it's definitely overpriced. However, the ice cream is delicious. Try the Kahlua Chocolate Chip was awesome.

Overall ice cream was good...not great...service was certainly not with a smile. Felt like I was intruder. Price very high...8 bucks for two scoops of ice cream. Try the old town creamery across the street instead
