Jolly Cow is a staple of Ulster county, NY. A well run, clean establishment with friendly and speedy service, with great ice cream to boot. I haven't had any hot meals from them but their ice cream is to die for. They always seem to be busy which is great, people are getting wise to just how great these folks... More

Always a welcome site to see them open after the winter season. They have the best soft ice cream around. Lots off flavors.

Good range of ice cream, Delicious soft serve and scoop flavours. Ice cream sundae was huge - big enough for 2 or 3 people. Lots of onsite parking. Conveniently located off 9W with a hug ice cream cone on top of the building as you approach.

Love the Jolly Cow. I have to fight the steering wheel to get by the driveway without pulling in for a treat. Soft serve is some of the best with popular flavors offered on a daily basis. Service is always with a smile. Did I mention, I love this place.
