We stopped in on our way back home. I had a shake and the rest of family had the glaciers. The shake was good. The rest of family enjoyed their glaciers. We'll stop in again the next time we pass through town.

The whole scoop is a fun destination right on Main Street in the river town of Grafton Illinois. Always a smiling face and of course excellent ice cream. And don't forget the corndog.

This little store has a lot of nice options and you get to order from the window. I think they also have a drive through. Hand dipped ice cream in a few different flavors, frozen yogurt, and "Glaciers". The Glaciers are essentially the local name for concretes like you would get at Ted Drewe's in Saint Louis...for those that don't... More

Stopped here after lunch and grabbed some hand scooped ice cream and a frozen strawberry lemonade. It is walk up only but has tables with umbrellas so even a hot June day wasn't too bad to sit there. There are lots of menu choices to try.

It was hot and we wanted ice cream to cool off. Could not believe how large the set I ha were. And it was a yummy treat. We each had something similar to a "blizzard". Very tasty.

Love this place it's an annual tradition that before we leave Grafton via the Ferry we have to stop and have some ice cream.

The ice cream is fantastic!!! Loved the Butter Pecan ice cream cone. There are picnic tables to sit on while you enjoy the nice weather and all the activities going on around town.
