Yes, order the banana split and share it with another. I ordered strawberry ice cream to test thier quality because I don't like strawberry ice cream...nobody makes it "real". This plcae makes it "real". I always take home a half-gallon with me after a cone or so. Plus! Great view of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline. A really good deal.

I live in Brooklyn and never heard of the place. Saw it on a "Foodie" show and decided to try it. I waited all week until my day off. Drove all the way across Brooklyn and could not find parking. Anywhere! If you drive just past the place you are stuck on a one way, no parking, access road under the BQE. After three attempts of circling around the long way back, past construction and horribly rutted roads, I gave up and went home. No ice cream is that good. I'll try again, maybe when out of towners are visiting but we will take the subway. This was in February, not during their peak season. Sigh, I was really looking forward to it, so I am bummed out but that's life. :) Peace, Love and Happiness! Cathy PS ratings were a required field so I gave them average for all.

Really unfortunate situation

THIS PLACE HAS THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE. I watched a family with 2 small children get turned away at 10:01 pm (because they closed at 10 officially) even though the employees had not even begun to clean up yet. The children were very disappointed, but no matter how much the mother pleaded for "just one scoop", the employees refused to budge. Customer service should come first, especially with ice cream. I will not go back, and I do not recommend any of you do either
