Grindstone General Store reviews
An amazing amount of ice cream! I ordered a baby and I couldn't eat it all! It was soooo good!! This store sits outside of town, but it more than worth the drive!! more »
I'm with my family for a vacation in Harbor Beach. Totally nothing is here. My sister in law told me that there's a very good ice cream. I told her everything will be good if there's something to buy in here. So we drove like 25 miles and I would admit. It was the best ice cream. It's not sweet at all and it is huge. One scoop is like a pint of ice cream. The price is cheaper than the one you can find on the grocery store. They made their ice cream everyday.
OMG and then some. Truly amazed by the taste of this ice cream. Oh, so full of flavor and so creamy. These are small ice creams.. I know right! Place was a little hard to find but definitely worth finding it. My ice cream from the store hasn't tasted the same, since we had this heavenly goodness
