Polar Bear Homemade Ice Cream & More

Polar Bear Homemade Ice Cream & More, the oldest name in ice cream since 1949, proudly produces the classic homemade ice cream daily from the original recipes that everyone knows and loves! Your family will experience stepping back to a simpler time. Enjoy the beautiful country setting while enjoying homemade ice cream made from the original Custard King batch machines, sundaes from the 1950's era soda jerk, and floats topped off with root beer from an original wooden Richardson's Root Beer barrel. Polar Bear Homemade Ice Cream & More also offers classic car hop food: burgers, hots, and fresh-cut fries, fresh baked goods, and homemade donuts are offered seasonally.
