My first experience here and boy was it great! It’s still got that small town feel with personable help. I ordered a single sugar cone & it was the size of a triple and I couldn’t eat it fast enuf!! So delicious.

Best ice cream I’ve ever had! Portions are large and staff was very polite and super helpful. I’m sure the location at the pier is excellent (not open when we visited).

A visit to SoHa is not complete without a visit to Sherman’s. Great ice cream and sundaes make it a nice place to take the kids!

All I have to say is yum!! My husband and I were camping at yogi bear and stopped here for icecream with our 5 kids. We visited on a Sunday when they first opened which it wasn't too busy. Once we left it was crazy...More

This was the best sundae I've ever had! Delicious creamy apple crisp ice cream with crispy apple crisp topping mixed in. Warm apple topping, pecans, whipped cream & a cherry!

Thank you for the inquiry about the trampolines but we no longer have them. We took them out in the early 70's. It was partly because of insurance liability reasons but also to expand and improve our parking lot.
