Come on.... Ok if I wanted a floor show I would have gone to Vegas. Help wasn't and Ice Cream was good but not great.
Needs major clean up!. We were just there last Saturday. The ice cream was good but the place was so so dirty!! The counters, the floor, the walls, the servers!!! and the bathroom was horrendous. I don't know how this could has been able to stay open at the Quarry!!! I really hope the management reads my review and does a major clean up. They also need to have the servers come in clean clothes and learn how to greet customers with a smile and a hello to say the least!!
What a great icecream place. We went in on a Friday evening and must have been early as there was hardly anyone around. The guys working behind the counter were very friendly and seemed to very much enjoy their job. We got a pint to go and headed home. Hours later, we pulled the coffee/PB Cup icecream out and it was still very soft, which was a complete suprise. The coffee icecream was very strong and oh so wonderful!
We'll def. go back, but may not stay as the music being played was not my cup of tea, but that is not really an issue if the icecream is worth it.
fun to mix, toss, and swirl. You can do anything to your ice cream here, even toss your ice cream in the air. Just make sure the scooper doesn't touch the ceiling! My favorite thing to order here is mexican vanilla with strawberries. The portions are HUGE, as well as the price. It seems pretty expensive to pay $6 for ice cream, but the atmosphere and quantity is worth it. I enjoy the music during the week, but no so much on the weekend. It is definately a place for the high schoolers and college scene.
Creamy ice cream, great for that sweet tooth!.
Amy's is always a nice place to drop by when crusing The Quarry, nothing beats ice cream in the sizzling TX heat!
Although i love to hang out there w/my friends, i do find some of the flavors a bit too sweet, often need to down some water after eating the ice cream (i am a die hard fan of bitter sweet ice creams of Hagendoz & Italian Gelato). However their yogurt suits me just right, and they do carry a good selection of toppings.
Visit this local incarnation of the Austin original where cool creations and high-flying scoops keep the crowds coming back..
On warm evenings, Amy's can get a little cacophonous with the percussion of ice cream paddles beating candies or cookies into the scoops. Look up to catch the sight of those same scoops flying high over the tops of the employees' crazy hats to land with precision (most of the time) into the cones and cups. The seating area is small, but the location near Borders Books is ideal.
With homemade flavors like Mexican vanilla, Sweet Cream and, for the truly Texan, Shiner Bock, there's an ice cream concoction here for everyone. No one else offers "Wedding Cake" or "Ice Cream Sandwich" flavors. In addition to cups and cones you can choose to get your ice cream fix via thick, creamy shakes.
Catch a Scoop Today!.
Always busy & always good ice cream, especially the Mexican Vanilla! Smash some other of your favorite toppings in there and you've got one of the best treats available in SA.
Friendly staff may deliver your order via air-mail, as they are in the habit of tossing the scoops up and catching them to add a little theatrical topping to your ice cream.
Sweet place to treat the family or go after a dinner date.
