Love the custard. So many flavor options / combinations. There was a long line, even on a cold night, but it was well worth it.

Yes you will have to wait in line, yes it could be hot outside, and yes it's just custard but... trust me you will be happy you went. If anything generates a line that snakes around a building now-a-days, it must be flippin fantastic and this custard is just that! They serve vanilla, chocolate and a flavor of the day.... More

Great custard, especially love Sunday special, butter pecan. 😋I've been getting custard at Ollie's since they have been open, over ten years ago. They have one daily special with vanilla and chocolate always available. Packed custard is available with many delicious flavors!

Ollie's is great. Lots of different choices. Prices are ok.. the only bad thing is the wait in line. The line goes to the back of the building. It goes by fast though. Love it!

This is our favorite place to go for "ice cream." It is really custard, super creamy, and many flavors--we have our favorites! Peanut butter chocolate nut and black raspberry come to mind first. Sadly, they are closed during the winter, but usually open near the end of February.

If custard is what you want, this is your place. During the summer months there is always a big line. The custard is the best around. Daily flavors are offered along with chocolate and vanilla.

Every flavor is outstanding, chocolate peanut butter nut is my favorite. Chocolate and vanilla every day plus one other flavor, menus is available on the website but pints and quarts are available from their freezer.open spring through fall a local speciality not to be missed.

Thank nhigdon
