Lots of great ice cream treats to choose from and they all tasted good. The prices are definitely a little high, but we got fairly big servings for the price and couldn't have eaten more. The kids liked the free chocolate samples that they were...More

A great place to stop to indulge with ice cream sundaes. Order at the front counter and the sundaes are brought to your table. Service was fast and friendly and sundaes were tasty.

On a hot day to have an ice cream concoction on the balcony over-looking the bay cannot be beaten. Good service and not too badly priced. Free chocolate too as you enter or leave.

Ghirardelli is what it is - excellent creamy ice cream. We like to eat a big lunch then have Ghirardelli for "dinner" - usually an ice cream sundae. Whether it's the chocolate sauce or another, it's fresh and yummy!

One of our "happy places" on our trip is to go to Ghirardelli and get a sample chocolate, order a mocha and head for the patio that overlooks the bay. There is something about a great cup of coffee topped with chocolate and handmade whipped...More
