We know this place for generations. It’s wonderful to see. Loved the ice cream treats and the “don’t have that anywhere else” experience. But..... They have no concept of time. The servers are polite but can’t handle the tables. The “scoopers” can’t fill the orders...More

A great place to take visiting family or to go if you are a tourist. Historical and interactive. The food is ok, but very expensive. However, the ice cream is AMAZING!!

Beautiful, historic building that demands a visit. Hand-made ice cream that is good (but to my taste buds not great.)

Incredibly beautiful place. Back to a simpler time when handcraftmanship and beauty was the norm. Exquisite preservation of memorabilia. Delicious homemade ice cream, sundaes, and sodas. Well worth the trip. If you’re passing by Columbus, I’d highly recommend jumping off and checking this place out.

This is a must stop when passing through this town, it's just a few miles from the interstate. Service was good and the ice cream is probably the best I've ever had! There are some cool sculptures around as well to check out!

We only ate ice cream here, but it was a nostalgic and rewarding experience. When we were there, there were only 7 flavors of ice cream but with 8 sauces and 5 toppings to choose from we had plenty of flavor concoctions to dream up....More

As to Gluten free... I am not sure. It doesn't hurt to ask them about possible Gluten free options... They are always open to any and all suggestions.
