good place to sit outside and enjoy nice weather with family and friends; great variety; free ice cream for little ones and for dogs; only issue is there is no public restroom, so this can be inconvenient with children

We have found this to be the best ice cream shop in Huntsville/Madison area. We love the choices of so many favors, the quality of ice cream is excellent! We love the butter pecan, tons of pecans in a creamy buttery ice cream, no other place can compair to the goodness! We have tried several different flavors, as well as... More

Always good. Tried the sugar free ice cream and it was yummy. My favorite is the Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk. It is pricey but everyone there is very friendly.

How can a stand in line place be great fun? Well, just visiting with your own friends you brought along and then interacting with others. We were curious why a young couple in front of us were each holding a banana. Finally I had to ask. AND Thursday is 1/2 price Banana Split day IF you bring your own banana.... More

If you like ice cream that's too soft with too strong of a base flavor, then this place is for you! Combined with rude, slow, and down right poor service it's surprising to see they have been around for so long. Every year we say, we will give them one more try, then leave swearing we will never come back.... More

I rated this place average because we stopped going because of the prices. I took my wife and son and his family and spent $25.00 just on ice cream cones. Also, I have gone there during the day and found a Closed sign on the window. Maybe they are having problems even with the high prices. Go to the supermarket... More

If you ared diabetic this is the place for you. Typically they have 2-3 no sugar added selections. The regular ice cream is excellent as well according to the rest of the family. One caution, be hungry because the servings are huge!! We have often had 2-3 eatings on one scoop! Enjoy!
