They have excellent icecream with lots of flavors to chose from. The only down fall is that my Peanut allergic child could not safely eat the icecream.

Dipped waffle cones were so fun! Had the birthday cake one with birthday cake as well as a turtle cone. Ice cream was very thick and full of goodies. Cute shop and good location by the port. Must stop.

We like to grab some ice cream at Licks Unlimited and go to the park and sit by the lake. The ice cream is always great and better than what you can get at the grocery store. Very good!

The ice cream was some of the best I have ever had. I only wish I didn't live 3 hours away. A great way to top off dinner.

Numerous flavor choices, delicious ice cream and great staff! The store is small so you might have to wait in line, but it's worth it. The inside is so cute with fun knick knacks and photos.

Their ice cream is delightful. They have lots of flavors and fun combinations to pick from. It's a seasonal place and is only open during the summer. There's often a line but the wait is well worth it!

Licks is the go to place for ice cream. During the season, there are often lines out the door for the dozens of delicious flavors. It’s an Excelsior tradition. Closes for winter.
