Typical B & J - good ice cream, kinda pricey. Went from an evening sail to Ben & Jerrys. Is it just that the dishes & cones are shrinking??

Great selection of flavors, but you must try their core Sunday with your choice of two flavors and hot fudge or Carmel in the middle. A great treat on a hot day.

Everything at the Wharf somehow gets a unique charm associated with it, including this Ben & Jerry's. Ice cream was good, as ever. Service was OK. Wait time was tolerable.

Love the Cherry Garcia. Line was long but moved pretty fast. Every time we walked by the place you could smell the waffle cones....yummy!

Do be afraid of the long line - It moves quickly. Although I always try to support the mom and pop ice cream shops, non really seem to measure up to Ben & Jerry's. Located at the end of Bannisters Wharf, the employees are friendly and the ice cream is great.

Wanted ice cream after a so so dinner. The first Ben & Jerry's had nothing we wanted. Found this on the wharf. The chocolate was delicious and my husband hasn't stopped raving about the Buzz Buzz coffee.

I felt like there ice cream flavors were new and tasty. Love the creaminess of the ice cream itself and highly likely that I would return

You have to park your car somewhere else, since there is no parking on Bannisters Wharf. The place was empty when we came. Plenty of choices. Quick service.

on our way back to the hotel, we were tired as we had done all the shops, and stores, and had a lovely dinner, we decided to get some Ice cream just a "kiddy cup" to go. For when we got back to the hotel, we got comfortable, as we had placed the cups of ice cream in the freezer,... More

For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of – especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores – nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.
