Gabel's has been selling ice cream in Tannersville since I was a kid and possibly longer than that. It's an old-fashion ice cream stand and drive-in. The food is great, the ice cream is great and when you pull into the parking lot, it's like going back to the 1950's. It's a local treasure!

Apparently this place has been around forever. One of the moms at my work was talking about her daughter working at Gables for the summer. This spawned conversation about how wonderful their ice cream tastes, they have been going for years, etc. When I asked the location (being new to the area), I was surprised it was the little ice...

Ice cream is nothing special and the service is horrendous. You basically pay an inflated price for ice cream that tries and fails to be like Carvel. You are better off going to the store and picking something up rather than get ripped off and be treated horribly.

With no mention of the dates of operation, we tried to stop by there on 11/5/15 to get some ice cream after shopping at the outlets. Not only was Gabel's closed and boarded up, there was a For Sale sigh in front of the building. Did some checking when I got home and the business is listed for sale.

Stopped by a moderately crowded Ice cream Shop that had a great selection of Ice Cream Products as well as comfort foods, Everyone seemed to enjoy the selection and the quality associated with their purchases.

Gabel's is the place to go in the summer. Great ice cream and even great food! There is a playground for little kids to play on, and a bunch of picnic tables to sit and eat your food and ice cream. I haven't had one thing that I didn't like there.
