Great service, many options. Specials and soup selections offered daily, along with sandwiches. Ice cream novelties, as well as the typical sundaes, shakes, cones, chocolate covered bananas, etc. All are delicious!

Family-friendly and wholesome, the GG is a great place to visit for lunch... More

We treat ourselves to an ice cream from the Golden Guernsey pretty regularly in the summer. They have the most reasonable prices in town and don't skimp - 3 scoops means 3 scoops. We're always happy to support a good local business like this.

I've been going to the Golden Guernsey for a long time. There has not been one incident where the service was inconsistent. They always have a friendly smile, a nice demeanor and your ice cream or food is out very quick. They do a great job at handling loads of people at once. It is by far one of the... More

My family really enjoyed this place. Ordered delicious ice cream cones from the window and had to come back the next day for more! They had cannoli ice cream, which I'd never seen before, and it was delicious. Window service was friendly and accurate.

It was a very warm night and we decided to get some ice cream. This is the place to go for a great cone. We decided to get two different flavors as there was so many delicious flavors to choose from. Great value and quick service.

The Golden Guernsey is a hallmark of the city. Home made ice cream, the kind of flavors which make it hard to make a choice.
