Always a great place to go with family and friends. Casual atmosphere - picnic tables outside or just take your awesome dessert home w/ you :)

Nothing beats JC on a warm summer or in this case an Indian summer night in October. The ice cream is perfect every time.

Great neighborhood place, great ice creams, all outdoors and long lines but worth it. Limited flavors, but fresh and tasty.

Excellent ice cream and family memories to be made in a small rural town. If you find yourself in Damascus, MD; Jimmie Cone is simply put "an institution" and a must go.

JC serves rich soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt. We love the chocolate malted milk shakes! They serve hot dogs, too, but you are there for the ice cream, right?

We had some trouble finding this place, it's by the Food Lion. Customer service was quick, and we enjoyed the ice cream.

Jimmie Cone is an old-fashioned hometown ice cream shop. It has a great variety of good ice cream, blizzard, milkshakes and frozen yogurt. Avoid weekend evenings as it's a popular spot with the teens of Damascus and tends to get very crowded.

Jimmie Cone is a landmark in Damascus, having watched the town grow around it since 1955. They are usually open from mid-March through October. The ice cream is simple soft-serve, but they do have two feature frozen yogurt flavors each week, one fat free and one sugar free. On any warm summer night, one can drive by and see the... More
