The Big Chill has the best ice cream around by far. They make it all themselves and I have never had a flavor I didn't like. My favorites are creme brûlée and Joe Black.

I have visited this recently in search of an ice cream, they have some good options. The one I ordered was OK, there is nothing so special about this but then it is the only one of its kind available in the town.

Have you seen the cow? If the answer is yes, you've probably enjoyed what we call "Handmade Excitement". Established in 2004, the concept was to provide our customers with a new handmade ice cream experience with every visit. Our atmosphere brings back or establishes new memories for everyone that walks through the door. You will find an enthusiastic staff of well-trained employees. All of our ice cream is made on the premises using only the finest ingredients with most of the flavors being all natural. We offer over 200 flavors of ice cream from our own recipes, some of which you will find nowhere else. There are 42 flavors displayed which are rotated on a daily basis. We specialize in making Banana Splits, Sundaes, milkshakes, frozen coffee and fruit drinks.Anyone can sell ice cream and desserts but at Brennan's Big Chill we sell "Handmade Excitement" Open from Groundhogs Day (Feb.2) To just before Thanksgiving
