I mean really; are people in business for themselves really this dumb to thumb their noses at their own customers? Honestly, I could care less about about any establishment with rude employees and that's why Painters Ice Cream will never see another dime from me! But maybe if I dipped ice cream all day long for a living, I might go nuts too -lol

Ripoff! Very expensive for what you get & taste no better than store bought. Does not even compare to homemade.

Looks like most of the negative reviews here are from people whom did not read the menu. I have always had good experience's with painters. My family goes every time we visit Myrtle Beach.

Stay away from this place if you don't want to be yelled at by the employees!! I live in this area, and had just been to Painter's a few weeks ago. When I asked for the same sundae I had gotten before, I was told that they didn't have it. So, I asked about a couple more flavors they had on the board, and was rudely told that they didn't have them, and it appeared that I was really irritating the woman. They was no one in line behind me, and only one other couple that had already been served, so I wasn't holding up the line, or anything. I then told them I wanted a Heath Bar Crunch Sundae, (meaning a sundae with the Heath bar crunch ice cream flavor), and the woman rudely and loudly informed me that they didn't have that flavor. When I asked about making a sundae with that flavor, the woman said that I hadn't asked for that. I then asked her why she was being so b*****, and I left. I definitely will never go back to this place again!!!!

We have always stopped by painters for ice cream. On Saturday, October 13th, 2012 and ordered ice cream. The girl waiting on us was so rude and disrespectful. Somebody please send this girl to customer service school. Becky, Renie and Shirley

My husband and I were excited to go to a local ice cream place. We were very disappointed by the selection. I was very disappointed by the orange/pineapple flavor. It was very bland, tasteless, and not creamy. I got better ice cream at Mc Donalds. Don't get me started about price. We spent over $8.00. I would not bother going there again. When did they get voted for best ice cream?

Ice cream was freezer burned and covered with ice crystals. The price is decent for so-called "homemade" ice cream, but I could've gotten an entire carton of store-bought ice cream for the same price, and it would've tasted much fresher. The lady serving us acting like we (my friend and I) were inconveniencing her, although there were only two people behind us. Don't waste your time there, unless you enjoy old-tasting ice cream and snappy servers.

The ice cream was good not the best homemade ice cream we ever had. We wish we had a Marcie's Homemade Ice Cream store in MB when we travel for the winter. Marcie's is the creamiest most flavorful ice cream, even better than the Creamery at Penn State. If your ever in Northwest PA look up Marcie's Homemade Ice Cream you won't be disappointed ever. We love it so much we have had it shipped to us overnight.

I luv painters ice cream. My family was on vacation and the owner let us watch them make the homemade ice cream so I know it's made there, the bldg where they make it is in the back of the parlor. The man behind the counter is always so nice to my family and is too funny. I have been there countless times and always been treated with respect...also, have seen vanna n she is very nice, as well;-).

Our family has been coming to Painters for the last 40 years. I would say we are an expert in this establishment. Unfortunately, the Painters of yester year is long gone, the quality, cost, and atmosphere that our family was accustomized to has be replaced with high cost, low quality, ice cream shop that does not have the chunks of fruit,and other goodies that the Painters of yesterday had. I am sorry to say, its gone....Sorry Painters of yesterday......we will miss you....... hope someone else will pick up the pieces.....

Poor customer service. The lady who took our order acted as if we were bothering her. The butter pecan ice cream tasted freezer burned.

The best ice cream ever!! Me and my boyfriend stayed in Cherry Cove for a week and we came to painters every night after the waitress and Rockfellers suggested this place! I am a big ice cream eater...and this is by far the best so far! Looking forward to going back when we return!!
