We came here on a Saturday afternoon to get some ice cream for the kids, and it was a mixed bag visit. Many of the flavors were empty when we came, and apparently what you saw is what you get.

The service is usually pretty nice unless the owner is there and he is super nice. The ice cream tastes fresh and the flavors are pretty accurate. The only minus is that there is not much seating space and also no sherbert or tart/sour flavor options. Still a great place to go in the summer.

This is always good and the owners are excellent here! I love Carvel ice cream and have also ordered several cakes here. Ice cream makes everyone happy and this is the only Carvel around!

I went in to buy some ice cream for my two year old and me. I had never been to Carvel before, so I asked the man behind the counter which flavor he recommended for my daughter. He acted annoyed with my question. After he flatly answered me, I ordered one scoop of his suggestion for my daughter. While he... More
