It's mediocre at best. It didn't Wow me! It was hot when I was there. It would have been nice to have a cool place to sit while we ate our ice cream.

Bruster's is what I'd describe as a fairly standard "parking lot" ice cream joint (maybe they call it a mini-mall). The ice cream is quite good, but nothing that will have you writing home about it. By all means, when you crave ice cream and...More

They now have a drive-through; Awesomeness! Still have outside seating too. This location carries Nathan's Hot Dogs too.

Excellent ice cream and very popular but lines aren't long. Very good ice cream. I am partial to their milkshakes!

We come to Bruster's every time we are in Birkdale. Raspberry Chocolate Truffle is awesome. Birthday cake is a favorite too

I took 2 young ladies for their first time at Brusters on a Sunday evening. They loved the selections and raved about their Coffee Oreo, Coconut Cream and Graham Central Station. The homemade taste won them over.

Had a delicious waffle cone. Love the fact it's made on the premises. Add to that they also serve Nathan's Frank's and Crinkle Cut Fries. Simply Heaven!!

They make their ice-cream in house. Yummy selection of flavors. They also sell Nathan's Hotdogs--not my favorite brand, but it's convenient. This store is just down the road from Birkdale Village and stays busy. Homemade waffle cones are very good. Plenty of tables to sit...More

So good on a hot, hot day. Very friendly people too! Ice cream was sooooo creamy. Good quantity of goodies in the blizzard type things.

Every new city we move to we look for Brusters!! It's the best ice cream by far! The Cornelius location is great ... close to Birkdale but without the crowds and near Lake Norman for a treat after boating.
