The ice cream is incredibly fresh. A small dish is the perfect size. I ordered the mint chocolate chip. FANTASTIC! My wife ordered the coffee oreo and was in heaven. An excellent place for a sweet treat after walking around and enjoying either lunch or...dinner on the Waterfront.More

I came in and ordered 2 scoops of chocolate, another order of 2 scoops of Rocky Road and a lil bowl /scoop of vanila, guess how many times i had to repeat that to the server, 4 times and on top of that the people...behind me had to be served first because this server just couldnt do a simple order. My hubby came back the following day to see maybe that server just had an off day and since the ice cream were delish, lets give them another chance. UGH, the female server was so put off because hubby came and ordered some ice cream, come on The Creamery, what is wrong with your employees, this was August 22 and August 23, check your list of people working there, Get new servers!!More

I love their strawberry ice cream by the scoop. I like the cake cones, but they have a variety from which to choose. It is not too sweet, taste like strawberries, and taste fresh. Love it and recommend the ice cream.

The chocolate & orange flavor tasted just like the chocolate candy and the cinnamon flavor was equally tasty.

A welcoming shop with lots of ice cream choices, from flavors, cones and toppings. The air conditioned store was a wonderful place to happen upon during the summer heat! Delicious ice cream. Warm, friendly staff. Places to sit and enjoy your ice cream too.

You can find custard with vanilla or chocolate flavor. The vanilla was creamy with a nice texture, however a bit tasteless You can find regular flavors which were good

This long deep store has everything a heart can desire - rows and rows of ice cream flavors to choose from, seating, water, a restroom, and most importantly, friendly service. They even had orange chocolate chocolate chip!! The scoops are generous, the ice cream smooth...and creamy, its a must do treat while near the waterfront! The place has been around forever, since the early 1980s, its grand to visit an old familiar friend in the ever changing landscape of downtown Alexandria.More
