The best ice cream I have ever had. It doesn’t matter what you get, it’s good. So many flavors to choose from, along with sundaes, frappes, and weekly specials like strawberry shortcake.

We frequently visit this Giffords especially when our family comes for a visit and/or their vacation. The place is clean and the service is excellent.

Give me a choice and I'll always get sorbet (Sherbet) but sometimes you just need a bit of ice cream, and this is amongst the best there is. Now I must add a disclaimer here… don't put a Baskin-Robbins near or I'd never stop here,...More
