Horrible service – Have been a customer of Grand Tan Club since it has opened, only live a half a block away, but the way the owner just treated me, I am done. Rude and unprofessional is all that can be said. If you change a rule that is fine, but don't be rude about it, and blame it on your employees who you should have trained. Maybe the daughter should speak with the mother on how to have manners. Very rude and unprofessional. I will now be a fan of izzy's ice cream as well, as the same family owns the Creamery also. Don't go.
Closed:( – Some one needs to open this place back up soon! I don't know how much longer I can take it with out there ice cream?
YUM Coffee Break Ice Cream – The ice cream is so good, and the flavors are really unique. I love coffee break ice cream (it's like cookies'n cream,only in coffee flavored ice cream yum!) They have very good ice cream cakes and pies, those pies are amazing. I highly recommend but realize that if you go between between 5-9 on a warm evening you will be waiting in a line. They stay open late too!
high school kids love it – the lines aren't worth it. i mean, it's good, but all ice cream is good, no? most of those in line are high schoolers whose friends work behind the counter and make a habit of giving out free goods. yep, free ice cream, one of the perks of attending St. Paul Central High School.
love the malt ball – The best ice cream I've ever had. I love the atmosphere, and the staff is great. I think my favorite part is the malt ball at the bottom!
As I write this..... – I am eating out of a pint of my favorite flavor from Grand Ole Creamery, Lemon Cheesecake. This is got to be absolutely the best ice cream I have ever had! Fortunately for me, there is now a Grand Ole Creamery location in Hastings, conveniently a few blocks from my house. Each time I have been to the store, the staff has been more than helpful and very friendly. I will continue to go back many times!
A sweet-smelling spot known for giving a special treat at the bottom of every cone. – In Short
This always-busy neighborhood spot has been keeping locals cool since 1984. During humid Minnesota summers, folks line up to indulge in this creamy treat. Customers can satisfy their chocolate, strawberry or vanilla cravings or get reckless with black walnut, cinnamon and sweet cream. Order a more-than-enough single scoop in a flavorful, homemade waffle cone and discover a malted milk ball lovingly placed so that the ice cream doesn't leak out onto your shirt.
Best Place to go to to cool off – A family Tradition. Its worth the wait in line. Great place to people watch, while waiting for your favorite flavor. Which they have many to choose from. My Fave is none other than CHOCOLATE. Just ask Heidi.
I Love You Grand Ole Creamery – I only wish there were more places around that operate like The Grand Ole Creamery. This place strives to put our the best ice cream, ever. Why can more places realize that if they make something and make it good people will come. The creamery is better than coldstone because of the cool summertime atmosphere, not modern bussiness coldstone. The Creamery is also better than Izzy's, nut by much but just because they have more flavors and a larger establishment and seating.
Overrated – After all of the great reviews I had heard, I was exicited to finally taste for myself the treats at the Grand Ole Creamery. My boyfriend and I each got our own cones (chocolate chip for me, s'mores for him) and dug in. Unfortunately neither of us was impressed. The ice-cream had a grainy texture and no more flavor than a grocery store brand. There was nothing rich or creamy about either scoops. The staff was subdued and seemed unhappy to be there. The most disapointing part was when we finally got to the end of our cones neither of us had the malted milk ball that we had heard so much about. I can't figure out why so many people rave about this place. It may be a quaint little store but that doesn't sell ice-cream.
