Our family found the ice cream to be delicious. The orange sherbet was very refreshing on a hot night.

We visit family in Lakeland regularly and always stop at Bruster's for a treat. The peanut butter ice cream is a favorite! The service can be slow at times which is why I chose four versus five stars. Otherwise, it's great!

The ice cream here is delicious. My favorite is butter pecan. It has entire halves of very good pecans in it; it's buttery and probably the best butter pecan ice cream I have tasted. Service is also relatively fast and courteous.
