There is a Ben and Jerry's right around the corner from The Creamery, however this is a great spot that has been here for a while and serves great ice cream. This place is not as flashy as the other ice cream shops but this is a fun place to visit if in the area for some good choices for... More

I think my small cone - a chocolate vanilla custard twist - cost $5. But was really tasty. Chalk it up to tourist land.

Very creamy, rich, homemade ice cream goodness. Lots of choices, but wanted a chocolate fix. Good size helping. Friendly service. A few places to sit and cool-off on a hot day. Not cheap, but otherwise a winner.

There are at least 3 ice cream shops in this area, but the sign indicating that this ice cream was homemade appealed to me. I am so glad I chose them because the ice cream is rich and delicious. I tried some of the coconut and the black raspberry cheesecake, and they were both superb. My friends tried some of... More

My family and I decided to get dessert after eating at the Fish Market Restaurant. We stumbled across this ice cream shop, which was a good choice. I enjoyed the salted caramel ice cream. Although the ice cream was good, the portions could have been a little bigger for the price.

We went here for a late snack one night on our Alexandria VA trip. The service was quick, the selection was big and the ice cream was great. The just need to work on that dairy barn smell. Expected if was actually at a dairy farm but this is shop.

Good home made ice creams in interesting flavours. Great stop on a hot day. The small is pretty big.

Taking corporate ice cream mix from a carton and mixing it with flavorings isn't really homemade. Real homemade is when you make your own base. This ice cream is awful. Full of fillers and stabilizers and air and the flavors are bland. Supernarket brick ice cream.

Very good ice cream. I had the butter pecan my wife had strawberry. Both of us were very happy. Generous sized servings. Worth a return trip.

I've gone to this ice cream shop many times. They have good ice cream but I believe that customer service is more important. We had 6 kids in the group and yes they were rowdy, however they are kids and it is an ice cream shop. An attendant asked us in a less than polite way (to say the least)... More
