Great ice cream at decent prices! Small-sized cones are plenty big enough! Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great outdoor tables for seating. The turtle sundae was fantastic!

Penguin Palace is a Maumee tradition. Great ice cream served up by Maumee kids! They have great tornados, the best cookie dough in town and probably the best smurf ice cream in town! Try it out! You will love it!

Hard to beat penguin. It's good, it's familiar, and it's down the street from my house. Good ice cream, fun paintings of penguins all over the building, and nothing to complain about. Try the smurf ice cream (blue raspberry) or the Maumee River Dirt Sundae.

Penguin palace is a wonderful, hometown ice cream shop! The shop is distinctive; painted blue with peguin murals all around. Penguins are painted on every flat surface, making the "Palace" a fun place to come. The employees are friendly and the ice cream reasonably priced....More
