How can you go wrong with ice cream? Well, you can--I've been to places that charge $4.50 for a small ball of ice cream perched on a cone. Not at the Hayloft, though.

This place is and has for many years been the most sticky and smelly place I have ever been. Walking in the door and the place smells of mildew and grease and dirty carpet.

The food is okay, we usually stick with pizza. The ice cream is amazing. Many pages of different sundaes in the menu. We love to watch each one get delivered. A great family treat

Stop here with family on the way back from Father's Day outing. We had pizza which was spectacular but the ice cream was what stole the show. Huge portions if you're going to order make sure to check how big it is before you order it because your eyes may be way bigger than your stomach! Everything was spectacular you... More

The Hayloft has been a local staple in Decatur for years. Regardless of the change in ownership over the years, the Hayloft can always be counted on to deliver delicious ice cream treats! The portions are more than generous, there is so much variety and the prices are still reasonable. This is a great spot to visit in the summer... More

Yes the portions are ridiculous but it is soooo good. We had the smallest option on our ice cream but still didn't finish it. Great little place with a nice menu and tons of choices. Will definitely be back.

This place is popular with locals for a reason. They have about every type of ice cram, float, shake, split, malt, and ice cream combination you can think of. Plus all the above in every flavor. You can eat outside or inn. And best of all the staff is friendly. We all ate too much even though we got single... More
