Tom’s probably the best ice cream in Ohio. It’s been around since 1948 and has the classic dinner feel. The brownie sundae was wonderful. Highly recommend stopping if you’re going through Zanesville.

Doesn’t matter how cold it is, it’s always a good time for Tom’s Ice Cream. They have the best fresh roasted peanuts.

If in Zanesville or passing through via I-70, this is a must stop for homemade ice cream dripping over the bowls. This is a step back in time to the 50's as the decor has not changed throughout the years. USA Today has praised this...More

I was debating getting dessert at a restaurant or going for ice cream. When my restaurant server told me about Tom's I decided to give it a shot. It is a throw back kind of place that is wonderful. All ice cream is made on...More
