Really wonderful ice-cream. Parking deck is right behind making access easier. We avoided lines by going a little later in the evening. Well worth it.

This is a must try if visiting State College or the surrounding areas! The portions are huge and the ice cream is out of this world! It is typically always very busy but the service is quick and efficient. If you are a lover of Mint Chocolate chip like me then you must try it! 5 stars!!

Stopped for dessert after a dinner out and enjoyed the Butter Pecan. Never fails to please! Always a good value for the portions and the wait on line was minimal for a busy Saturday night.

The flavors offered run from the norm (Vanilla) to decadent (Death by Chocolate).I do believe it is the best ice cream I have ever tasted.

I have been to State College several times now and I can't leave without visiting the Creamery. My favorite is chocolate marshmallow. Don't forget to bring some home... they have dry ice and little coolers to purchase.. it travels well even on hot summer days!!

The richest ice cream I have ever had. Peachy Paterno and Death by Chocolate are my favorite flavors. Might not be suitable for lactose intolerant due to the high amount of cream (its my own opinion though).

The Berkey Creamery is famous for a really good reason - they serve great ice cream that is made on campus. A variety of food items are also available - soups, salads, sandwiches, snacks, etc. I went there twice - first time for bittersweet mint which was very good and the second time for death by chocolate which was fabulous....

If you're hungry for a wonderful ice cream, Berkey Creamery is the place to go. There is a large variety of flavors, with Peach Paterno being the best. Food allergies are treated seriously, with a separate person assigned to make sure there is no cross contamination
