If custard is what you want, this is your place. During the summer months there is always a big line. The custard is the best around. Daily flavors are offered along with chocolate and vanilla.

They have the best flavors of frozen custard and lots of toppings to choose from. You can get sundaes, shakes, or cones. There are usually long lines to order, especially if its a warm day. There is only outside seating at Ollies.

Outdoor ordering; first come, first serve, expect long lines on nice days, opens in March & closes at the end of October. Serves cones, malts, shakes, many toppings, a daily flavor of custard. Fun place to eat these sinfully delicious concoctions & enjoy the people & nice weather.

Ollie's is consistently delicious. Pre pare to wait in line with your neighbors. Many combinations of custard and toppings making deciding difficult. Generous toppings on creamy goodness. My favorite is the caramel cashew sundae, my husband's, strawberry hill.

This is the BEST custard shop around! This custard shop has only outdoor seating and is not open during the winter season. It's worth the stop.

Wanted to try for a long time. Every time I have driven by, there is a long line. I’m not much of a custard fan but will be back for sure. The line moved fast and you can’t beat the sundae options. I had a traditional caramel sundae. A little too much whipped cream on top for me so next... More

Rich and wonderful. There is a daily flavor. I almost always get the Hot Fudge/Raspberry Truffle sundae and it is fabulous. Don't let the long lines scare you off - they move fast and it is worth the little wait.

Great frozen custard! There is always a daily favor. The line sometimes is long but it goes fast and you can visit with people around you. It is fun to visit because you always run into someone you know.
