The teens are always welcoming, friendly and attentive. The toppings are kept fresh and full and clean. This place is always busy. I really dislike the stools inside - hard to get up on and I live in fear of my 8-year-old granddaughter falling off of one. Outside, there is very limited seating. However, I come for the ice cream, not for the seating. Still a good value.

Been here 3 or 4 times. First problem is the seating. There is a high counter with high backless stools. Clearly not good seating for young kids which you would think would be a large portion of an ice cream shops clientele. There are a few chairs outside but they are always in the sun in the afternoon with no shade. Have to go a few stores down to a bench in the shade or next door to starbucks to sit. Second problem is that twice now their frozen yougurt/ice cream machines haven't been working. First time it was about half the flavors and the second time it was everything except the chocolate/vanilla soft serve. Neither time was there a sign, you just had to try and find out that it wasn't working. The second time there was a sign saying one flavor was out so try x flavor. So, went to x flavor and it didn't work, nor did the rest. Very disappointing, especially for the excited kids. And when we went to pay, the attitude of the cashier was "so what" not "so sorry" or "here is a discount" or "it will be fixed next time you come." Hate to have to trek all the way to woodbridge for sweetfrog but it is looking like that's what will happen...

We found two workers there, one working diligently, one had 4 friends hanging there eating free samples. It was too hot to eat outside. Inside, the bar is too high and the chairs sink too low. The free friends were very noisy.

As far as the food, only about 1/2 of the ice cream dispensers were active, and it was early on a Saturday night.

No plans to go back

This Sweet Frog location is clean, friendly and responsive. The selection of flavors is great and the toppings bar is always full and clean. They have tables to sit out side.

Make your own super sundae and load it with your favorite toppings. There is something for everybody . Be careful.... They weigh it. Friendly young staff. Plenty of parking. A few outside tables. Look for discount coupons .
