Always a great stop on a warm summer evening...or really, anytime. Great selection of flavors. Do not let the long lines deter you because it moves quickly with the able and friendly "scoopers."

This was a great little ice cream shop to end our day. We loved it so much we went back the next day! The line could get a little long in the summer months but it moved quickly and the staff was very helpful and happy to provide samples. Highly recommended for the delicious flavors!

IT is the GO TO place with grandkids of all ages and out of town visitors. The staff seems like they are trained to please

Fresh home made ice-cream, and the same for waffle cones. Always busy, but the large staff of scoopers keep the line moving very efficiently. Zillions of flavors. Highly recommend because this is as good as it gets.

Over the past few years we've been regular customers at the Inside Scoop - even bought birthday cakes there - but something has changed this summer and yesterday was our last visit, unfortunately. The ice-cream is very good, so no issue there, however it's the hard-faced servers that wreck the experience Smiles? Manners? the occasion thank you? No, no ,... More

The thermometer hit 100 degrees and we hit the ice cream shop. This ice cream is homemade and delicious. I loved my chocolate fudge brownie. My husband had coconut almond. He loved it.

Very great ice cream shop. Fresh waffle cones, lots of flavored, and they take credit/ debit cards. Parking can be tight with small size of the lot, but don't let that stop you. There is street parking and a small lawnmower repair shop lot next door that people use after business hours.

They have the best selection of ice cream around and they make their own cones. Everyone in my family likes to make the effort to drive there for a cone. You can eat outside on the many picnic tables....hard to park and lots of traffic, but it is worth it if you can get in.

Terrific home-made ice cream, extensive range of flavors, and good to go to anytime. It's a small roadside stand, outdoor picnic tables to sit, and parking is limited so can be a little bit of a hassle during peak summer season, but oh, the ice cream is excellent and worth the lines! Root beer floats, shakes, ice cream sodas, sugar... More

Delicious flavors, and free samples. The cakes are fabulous too. The location isn't the greatest, being on a main drag, but the ice cream is heavenly.
