We heard they reopened up a new Chocolate Moose, after the old place got shut down. The kids were excited to try a new ice cream place, and the kids absolutely loved the ice cream. The ice cream was tasty, as was a chocolate malt!...More

I spent decades going to the Chocolate Moose in its old parking lot hut location on S. walnut St. I was dismayed to find that great old building and great old EXPERIENCE is gone. In its place is a soulless new restaurant....actually it's now turned...More

Friendly staff greet you when you enter the door. Numerous menu choices are available. Each beverage is individually prepared using organic ingredients. You can purchase ground coffee and t-shirts to take home. The Chocolate Moose prepares excellent beverages to savor on cool days.

I had the banana split which was a suggested favorite. It was delicious. Smooth creamy with great toppings. This is a great place to stop by for a treat. Very little parking and no dining area.

This is fabulous, but expensive ice cream. They have homemade hand dip and soft serve. The line has been huge both time we have been. After you wait 10min to an hour to order, you wait just about the same time to get the ice...More

Don't be intimidated by the long lines. It's part of the allure as you stand and listen to oldies music from the giant speaker located right out the back door of this stand. The wait was under 10 minutes and we enjoyed the tunes and...More
