We stopped here after a long day on the mountain to get some ice cream. We were so disappointed. The store is absolutely filthy and we were not sure we even wanted to order anything. The dust was so thick on the counters and shelves...More

Atmosphere is fantastic as it is set in a perfect 1900 storefront location attached to the opera house. However, that's where the kudos end. In spite of a line out to the door (it was long), the staff was too busy BS'ing to care much...More

Went for ice cream and wasn't disappointed! Large serving size (kids size was plenty) and prices were plenty fair! Friendly staff and pleasant experience! Plus the ice cream was delicious!! Will return!

We've been here before but this last time was very disappointing. The service was very poor. It took forever to get through the ice cream line. However, the fudge was delicious! Too bad the service was so terrible, we would have gone back.

Sort of Silverton-style, rustic-old, decor invites patrons to head to the back for ice cream. Flavors listed on a large blackboard on the wall may or may not be what's in the 5 gallon cans of ice cream in the freezer which are not marked....More

Stopped in for some ice cream and decided to try the sundae. The only problem with it was to eat quickly enough before the giant mound of different flavor ice creams in the bowl melted down over the side. All of the ones that I...More
