On my trip to Ohio visiting one of my good friends, he took me to Toft's Ice Cream Parlor. I must admit that was some of the best ice cream I have ever had; so if you're ever in that are you must make time to go visit that parlor.

After a day at a local water park, we decided to visit Toft's for ice cream. Personally, I have NEVER seen so many ice cream choices!!! Our family (4 adults and 2 children) made our choices and enjoyed sitting inside the Parlor. One adult chose a LARGE cup of ice cream, and he devoured it! There had to be 6-8... More

This place has great ice cream and many friendly faces. So many choices but the staff is very patient. There are literally dozens of ice cream flavors. You can choose a cup or a cone and eat inside on vintage benches, take it to your car, or enjoy your ice cream on one of the many umbrella covered tables just... More

Tofts dairy is a Sandusky staple. The ice cream is ridiculously delicious, and the portion sizes are crazy big, so mind what size you order. This is the only ice cream my family eats and since it's local, we stop in quite often.

Toft's is THE BEST vacation ending. I've always had a wonderful time here, and now my little girl loves it too. Not to be missed.

I have been going to gifts since I was much younger! I love the atmosphere and the many flavors of ice cream. Whenever my relatives come to Ohio they always ask me to take them to that amazing icecream place! The staff are younger but very nice.

First ever visit and I did not want to just get one flavor so after some discussion I decided on a banana split. They call it a "banana boat." It should be called a Banana Battleship. A normal banana split anywhere else in the world comes with three scoops of ice cream but not at Tofts. Tofts has SIX scoops.... More

We enjoy visiting the Sandusky area and we just so happened to come upon Toft's Ice Cream Parlor, which is a real Creamery Farm. Fantasic Ice Cream, and you get a lot for your money. Taken some of our friends out there and they enjoyed it as much as we did. You'd want to make sure you have other things... More

They are very generous with portions. I order a baby cone it is about one and a half dips. Hubby I split the sundaes and share the small banana splits! Lunch menu are sandwiches and homemade soups. Once in awhile we will share the banana split for lunch.

There is a Toft's listed under Shopping in Sandusky but it's an ice cream parlor. They do sell milk, etc. but it's pretty much an ice cream/milkshake place.
