I was expecting to have a better selection and better quality ice cream. The bathrooms were disgusting and unusable.

Well I just came from a long day from Six Flags Great America and had a late lunch. I saw there was an Oberweis in Gurnee, IL and really had a craving for this delicious Ice Cream for desert hoping it would be the same in service and quality as the other locations in Chicago and suburbs. I have gone to mainly Skokie and Oak Park location and many others with both Great Service and great ice cream but this particular one kind of disappointed me in service and consistency of the ice cream I was expecting. Well one the server (I think her name was Cas on my receipt) took the order ok BUT it took them very long to deliver. I had the Banana Royal in traditional flavors and it took a while than usual. It was busy and saw some customers but it seemed that they were getting there orders of ice cream faster than my own order. I finally got my order just to notice my Banana Royal was NOT as big as I usually get it compared to Oak Park Location and Skokie as well as the others! This was the 1st time I notice the Banana Royal so small in size. I would recommend to have the service more attentive as well as the consistency of what is being served. I still would go to Oberweis however I would think twice if i had to go to this location with somewhat poor service and low consistency of the ice cream order I saw on the menu. I still like Oberweis but I would go to this Parlor last if not avoid it

brought my kids on 8/12/17 about midday and the girl behind the counter was very unfriendly and gave the vibe that we were disturbing her from her texting. the prices arent clearly marked we ordered 3 small ice creams which i though would come to about 11 bucks (which is pricey) but the bill was $17 because waffle cones are extra. anyway the girl made them which she clearly didnt want to and we ate them. not a napkin in the place they only had one napkin dispenser and it was empty. the ice cream itself id consider average to slightly above average however the customer service was so crappy i wouldnt return. the place was completely empty we were the only ones there now i see why. i suspect at one time it was a good place but its since lost its focus

Good ice cream! I had the espresso caramel chip with a sprinkle waffle cone:) yummy! I enjoyed that some of the tables had chess, which we enjoyed while waiting for and during our ice cream. It was kind of expensive, but I don't mind paying the money when it's worth it.
