Wishing for a brownie sundae I went to Brusters for the first time. It was good. I got it to go and once I dug in it was pretty good. Not the best of the best but good!

Bruster's has a great range of flavors and very friendly staff. The ice cream is good but IMHO it contains way too much air versus really good ice creams. It's to the point that it makes the ice cream "sticky" and the servers can barely get it off of their scoops. This is in contrast to creamy ice cream with... More

While the ice cream is good (not great) the service is unusually slow and inefficient. It seems as if they could use some improvement in how they handle orders, lines etc. In addition the outdoor seating area is almost always a mess, tables and chairs covered with the ice cream mess of other customers who should have cleaned up their...

Went here for dessert last night. It was my first time, although some family members had been here before. Depending on your opinion, it could be pricey. A single dip waffle cone was about $4.49--but a double dip was only about $4.99. They do make their own waffle cones, so they are fresh and good. There were LOTS of flavors... More

Almost every night after softball you'll find us at Bruster's. They have great ice cream with great flavors. They have a cute little sitting area with tables and chairs to relax under the shaded umbrellas during the day, or hang out under the lights at night. They do run specials on specific days so make sure you check them out.... More

Great place to grab some ice cream to satisfy all palates. Lots of flavors and novelty options. Outside seating area available which is nice, but drive through available for those quick stops. Often have activities for kids to do. Offer great fundraiser opportunities as well. A little pricey.

I took my daughter here for a snack. We both had sundaes. Everything was great, ice cream and service. This is chain and for a chain this is way better than other chain options.

They have so many flavors it's sometimes hard to choose. One day they had salted caramel that was to die for. You can never go wrong with Brusters.
