Such a beautiful spot! The flowers and the grounds are gorgeous, especially at sunset. I've been here twice and have not been disappointed once by their ice cream. My fav so far is red raspberry chip. Mini golf is kind of over priced but still...More

I really do like the back patio where you can see the grounds, very relaxing. Of course the food is good too, whatever you like.

Nostalgic Ice Cream stand. I assume the ice cream is not made on location. Shain's and Shaker Pond are better choices for Ice Cream quality. Shaws Ridge has the more interesting location. Take a stroll in the garden.

We visited on a Tuesday about 11:30am. The staff was friendly. The ice cream was to die for!! It was just like I remembered when I was kid years and years ago. We did take a large container to go as well...I'm eating it now...More

We took our grandchildren for an ice cream treat and they loved it. The selection of ice cream has something for everyone. Outside they have a small playground for children and a mini golf course and driving range so you can burn off the ice...More
