It's on their Facebook every day, they dont have a stand-alone website.
I believe I saw on their Facebook page that Labor Day is their last day for the season
They do not deliver
Red raspberry twisted with vanilla.
I dont know, but maybe you can find it on their Facebook page.
They close on a very sad day of the year
Don't believe the hype this place is really not so great. I have been here a couple times and unlike others I do not appreciate the lack of options. Your only option is vanilla or the one flavor of the day. The fruit flavored ice cream we had the last time we were there tasted fake, bleh
I went there for the first time this year and the ice cream was very good, super creamy and the flavor was great!
Definately worth the stop. Very pretty views while you eat their amazing ice cream.
Excellent ice cream. Pricy, but you're going to have that at a tourist place.
Excellent creamy soft serve. Not gritty at all. Great flavor. Nice view across the street to enjoy while you eat your ice cream.
Incredible ice cream. They unfortunately only have one flavor a day but they'll keep you wanting to come back. Highly recommended
Best soft serve ever!
One of the best soft ice creams you will ever enjoy. Everyday fresh batch. Must stop and taste.
Gotta come here when your in the area. It's simple soft serve ice cream in three different sizes, make sure to bring cash they dont take credit cards. Each day has a different flavor twist to vanilla. Gotta try it each day
Ice cream is soft and flavors are deliciously soft too, not overpowering. If you like soft serve you'll probably like any flavor they have. Pick a size, the flavor has been decided for you. Always a twist, never plain vanilla. Same machine operating for the past 65 years. Same gorgeous mountain view for the past ten thousand years. Don't miss it if you like nostalgia and yearn for the good old days when things were simple. Also, don't miss it if you love ice cream.
Absolutely love this place the ice cream is always amazing and homemade worth the trip there any day
Best soft serve I've ever had
Best soft-serve on the planet! And I challenge you to find a more breathtakingly beautiful setting for an Ice Cream stand anywhere on earth. When we're visiting the area, this is a daily (sometimes twice a day) destination! People who are looking for variety may be disappointed, as there's only one flavor per day, always twisted with vanilla--but that's part of the charm of this must-see location. Can't wait to come back!
Best ice cream ever. They chose the flavor. You chose the size.
Donnelly's has some of the best software serve ice cream I have experienced. They only offer one flavor per day, so sometimes you have to wait for a personal favorite (mine's lemon), bit it removes almost all delay, as all you need to choose is a size. If you visit the Adirondacks, it is worth the stop.
My favorite ice cream in the whole world. Soft serve [one flavor per day] made on premises. I grew up a mile away and now live on Cape Cod. Donnelly's is one of my MUST visits when I go back home... especially on Fri for strawberry/vanilla swirl.
Great ice cream. They only serve one flavor a day, and it changes every day. The flavor of the day is almost always twisted with vanilla. Always soft serve. The building is quite small, with no place to sit or stand inside. There's a grassy area you can sit in next to the building (just sitting on the ground, no tables) or stand in the parking lot area. Cash only.
Best 'Real' soft serve available. Rich and creamy. Always vanilla twisted with the flavor of the day.Not sure if there is any other location like it in the Northeast.
This place has the best ice cream I've ever had. Every week, different flavors, always twisted with vanilla. 1 week: Pistachio twisted with vanilla. Next week: Chocolate twisted with vanilla. Then Raspberry twisted with vanilla. After that, Blue Berry twisted with vanilla. Sooo many flavors. Check in every week for a new flavor. It could take months for a flavor to come up again.
Best Icecream in the state!
Nice soft ice cream. Lemon-vanilla twist was excellent. thanks!
We loved this soft serve. It was creamy and delicious. The fact that they only served one flavor was actually super exciting for our family. The first stop we had peanut butter swirl and the next time it was blueberry. My older son was making predictions about the flavor they would have and said, "I think it will be something with berries this time". We were all so excited to have blueberries and cream!The line moves fast and the signs are clear. Note: It is cash only! I did see some folks show up and leave to get cash. I hope you'll read this before you go to grab some before you get there.
Great soft ice cream with a different flavor of the day
Great ice cream. I traveled 25 miles one way to get it
This place is the absolute best. It is an absolute throwback. In an era where most places seem to abandon their roots, Donnellys has doubled down. They do one thing and it is executed to the highest level! If you found yourself within a 50 mile radius, it is a MUST!
Best ice cream! Can't drive by without stopping. Love the one flavor per day
The ice cream is delicious!! My family has been getting Ice Cream here for at least 4-5 generations. My grandmother tells stories about going here as a little girl. We always stop when we visit from Minnesota!!
The best! A must go place if you are in the area. Check the Facebook page for the daily flavors. Every cone is a twist of the two flavors of the day— you cannot get only one. Very popular little roadside place.
If you're in the area and not eating Donnelly's you are literally wasting your life.
Expensive soft ice cream.
I've been to many of the top rated ice cream parlors in the country and none of them come close to this. Unrivaled.
One of the best places in upstate NY for ice cream! Check their Facebook page for posts on their daily flavors. I like how creamy the soft serve is! I highly recommend. I went back for seconds after my first cone!
This is the best ice cream I have ever had. I come here frequently and always enjoy the fact that I don't have to choose between flavors.
The ice cream was not as good as it was , same shape
They serve one flavor a day. And they have packed ice cream from previous days. when I was there the flavor was almond creme and it was amazing. If you're in the area stop and enjoy it's worth the time.
The best creamy ice cream.
It's all about the machine! They use mix like everyone. The ice cream is very good. But it's NOT homemade!
What a sweet place! What a business model! Do one thing really well and line them up out the door and around the building.
Local's favorite! Make a point to make it there, no matter what flavor it is, they are all amazing!
Worth the wait in line for homemade ice cream (not custard! No eggs!) they have 1 flavor a day;usually twisted with Vanilla. That’s it! Because of the high butter fat content, they can serve it soft. But, be warned!! There are no artificial stabilizers in this ice cream, (like we are used to thanks to so many additives in our food today), so hold your cone straight or get it in a dish!If you want your choice of 100 flavors of sub-par ice cream, go someplace else. If you want the real deal, come here.
The soft icecream here was creamy and delicious. We drove all the way from Long Island to get it! Plus we were at Lake Placid.
Very good ice cream
Good ice cream. Very soft and great flavors. Line moves fast as there is only one flavor a day.
If you're only going to offer one flavor a day it better be great....And it is.
Best view for an ice cream stand ever.Family farm soft serve.They pick the flavor, you pick the size.Cash only, but that should be expected.Worth the trip, super creamy soft serve.
Best ice cream ever. I have never had a flavor I did not like. A friend told me to check this place out a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. If your ever near Saranac Lake, go! They make one flavor a day which they post on their fb page. On top of amazing ice cream the view while eating it is wonderful. So go and see why they have been a landmark since 1953 and have a treat from the same machine they opened with way back when!
Best ice cream ever
This place is awesome. I had to go back and get a second cone because the first one was so good.
Best ice cream you'll ever have. Ignore the long lines you won't regret it. Irish cream and coffee is amazing.
My favorite ice cream stand in the ADK. The creamiest ice cream.
