Gunther’s is hardly a hidden gem since it has been there for like 100 years, but it is the classic American ice cream shop. Everything made on site. Friendly staff of local high school students. They serve lunch, but it is nothing to write home...More

All their ice cream is house made. Service is good. The building is old and unique, up for being a historical landmark.Not a fancy place, but a good old fashioned ice cream parlor that dates back to the good old days.

Gunther's has been in this location for generations, and it's like a trip back in time when you visit. The place has a great 40s-50s vibe, but not the fake kind. The ice cream flavors are amazing, with some flavors limited to certain seasons. If...More
