Informative tour. Take the time to visit the ice cream museum as well. They will be giving free soft-serve samples in July. Of course, a visit to the ice cream parlor is a must. They offer all the current seasonal flavors. A new flavor is...More

The food was good and the ice cream excellent. A lot of people were there the Sunday we visited. I didn't think the workers were very motivated because of the slow service and amount of dirty tables. Some were more friendly than others.

We drove out to this gem and was surprised to see that they were offering $1 ice cream for National Ice Cream day. We also checked out the museum area and fished in the pond. A lovely day trip place in Ohio.

This stop gives the traveler history, yummy treats, peaceful walk beside the pond and ducks, time to take a breath while traveling.

I just wish we wouldn't have had lunch before the ice cream. But, on the other hand, the food from the cafe was great. We were there early, and went on the "tour" of the ice cream factory. It was short, but well given, and...More

I am sure dogs would be allowed on the outside in the picnic area. They would be off limits for the tour or the restaurant/gift shop.
