Stopped by the Velvet Ice Cream Co. on my way to Pennsylvania. Absolutely incredible ice cream. Loved the Mill, Carriage Rides and the Country Setting!

Beautiful day and location. Nice little tour for a brand I had never heard of but they ship to 28 states and are served at Bob Evans and sold in Kroger. Tasty stuff!

They have good food and ice cream. A place that everyone would like. Small children can run and play outside, I believe they had a small park. They have a gift shop too. There are tours of the factory during the week, but we were there on a weekend.

The building has charm but the restaurant needs help. Met a relative for lunch. The server was friendly but did not seem well trained. My check was not itemized. A wrap priced at $8.99 on the menu showed up as $11.99 on my bill. The server did not explain that replacing the side of chips with soup had an up... More

We stopped here for ice cream and a nature hike. We visit the ponds and the river. We took several photos here from our engagement to celebrating our anniversary. We are thrilled with the landscape. I've seen birthday parties hosted here and festivals. It's a great area both public and private. I wish the indoor area were larger, there are... More

Great ice cream, and old mill, and a short nature trai that follows an old canal. If you are near Columbus Ohio, it is worth a short drive into the country. Good ice cream and an interesting old mill with a small Musuem of old ice cream parlors, free. A good day trip. Also several pick your own apples orpeacheaches... More

Nice drive from South Eastern Ohio. We arrived at 11:15am and visited the gift shop and walked around the pond area. Nice nature trail. Tours start at the top of every hour, so we took the 12oclock tour. Nice history and felt like I was on unwrapped tv show. We enjoyed lunch and ice cream treats in the restaurant. On... More

If you like ice cream this is a place to visit. While there we took a short tour of the ice cream factory, then had a good lunch and then ate some ice cream. A good place for a one day family trip.
