We come here every Sunday night with the family. Even without the family. The ice cream is fresh, the flavors distinctive, the servers lovely, and the prices reasonable. Graham Central Station and Green Monster, we are waiting for you!

Our favorite place to go on a warm summer evening for ice cream. Portions are large-- get a kiddie size unless you're really hungry. They're only open from late April until mid September, typcially. Of the three big Ice Cream places nearby (Erickson's, Kimballs, Bedford...More

Like its competitor, the ice cream is great and the portions are huge. Well worth any lines! The servers are always friendly and patient no matter how long the lines are!

Along with many other locals, we've been regular customers at Erikson's for years and every flavor of ice cream is great. Portions are large, so we usually order the Kiddie size. A weekend evening bonus, the parking lot is often filled with antique cars.

This place has been around forever and continues to keep a dedicated following. All summer it's crowded. The ice cream's a bit on the pricey side, but it's delicious! And some wonderful flavors!

Erikson's has been around for 75 years and you will understand why wehn you taste the creamy, cold, flavorful confections. Erikson's means summer to everyone in a fifty mile radius of the place.
