Best creemee is most definitely at Burlington Bay. Creemees here are not as creamy and small for the price. Better flavor and better deal at BB--best creemee in Burlington.

Christopher Sumner

Decent food and service the chips in the nachos are very bland and leave u wanting better chips

Best creemees in Vermont. Seriously. Go maple or raspberry as they're REAL

I live locally and have read some reviews raving about the cremes here. Alas, that has not been my experience. I go to the stand just up the block (window at Burlington Bay Market) as I find them smoother and creamer. The servers there are always friendly, too. Like a couple other reviewers, I find the service at Bob's stand often brusk. I'll give it another try this year to be fair.

I’d read about creamees when researching our trip so had to try it. Extra rich soft serve. Maple was delicious and a must try, but I actually liked vanilla best. We grabbed a cone and walked around the park one evening. Very pleasant memory of Burlington!

This ice cream bob's is the best ice cream. I love it.

We came all the way from Yorkshire - England to visit your famous icecream shop! Your maple creemees rock! . We would come back for seconds, but your 5000 miles away! Let us know if you set up in England!

First time visiting the area and were told to hunt down a soft serve Maple Creemie. We were walking around the Lake Champlain boardwalk nearby and saw Ice Cream Bob's and a sign saying they had the flavor. I must say the Maple flavor was delicious and it made our visit complete. Yes, Bob has other flavors but this is a local delicacy one must experience. This is a walkup ice cream stand and not an enclosed building.

Located at the end of downtown Burlington and right before the gorgeous water (check out the water if you can, especially the swings) view, this place had several soft serve flavors. Visiting Vermont, I had to go with the maple soft serve. Perfection. Cold and maple and inexpensive (cash only but I think it was under three dollars). We shared it and even contemplated walking back for another. It looked like you could do maple raspberry which I noticed after we ordered and I have to say that flavor combo intrigues me. Maybe we'll stop for that on our next trip to Burlington.

I've walked by this ice cream shack many, many times over the years when coming to Burlington. This shop ALWAYS has a sign out advertising maple creamees, this is Vermont slang for soft serve ice cream.

Ice cream bobs is the cherry on top of the Burlington culinary Sunday, they are also open on sunday. Situated near the bay, ice cream coniseaurs can enjoy the countries very best creemee! You can even eat til your kinna sore. ATM available on site (before 6(when guys comes). Decorating the quaint location are custom textiles that truly culminate the experiences.

I've walked by this ice cream shack many, many times over the years when coming to Burlington. This shop ALWAYS has a sign out advertising maple creamees, this is Vermont slang for soft serve ice cream. FYI, they had signs at the counter stating that this is a cash only establishment. This business is VERY conveniently located near ECHO the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain and the beautiful waterfront. If you do come here, I recommend grabbing a bite and sitting by the lake for an amazing sunset. I'm not a HUGE maple syrup fan, so luckily they did have other flavors as well, so I went for a chocolate/vanilla twist. The ice cream here was disappointing, which is unfortunate. The ice cream was watery and not very creamy. I'd give it about a 6 out of 10. Other items sold here include Powerade and bottled water, which is super handy since this is right off the bike path. They also have hot dogs, nachos, soda, coffee, slush puppies, milkshakes, sundaes and a couple of other things. Wish the ice cream had been a bit better, overall it gets about 2.5 stars from me.

If you're looking for a late night treat sure to engage all of the senses go to ice cream bobs. If its winter then bobsled over, or if you're a construction worker bring over your Bobcat. Come to Bobs as it will fufill all your dreams, one could say it's a creemee in a bottle.

Very simple review - had the vanilla cone and it was utterly tasteless - No creaminess, no flavor, basically just watery ice milk. McDonalds cones way, way better for $1 vs this $3.50.

Maple Creemees!!! And location at the lake side and affordable.

John Martin

Ice Cream Bob has the best maple creamy’s in the state! The vanilla ones are great too. Give them a try right next to the Echo Center near the tracks on the waterfront

I had the maple and raspberrry twist creamy. I got a cup instead of a cone. It is a pretty small portion, but it is fairly tasty. Not the same as frozen custard, but pretty good for soft-serve. It was refreshing on a warm day in Burlington. I ate my ice cream, as I walked along the beautiful Lake Champlain waterfront.

This is a little shop that is right near the boardwalk and the Leahy Center. If you are not looking for it, you may miss it completely, so be certain to seek it out as it is amazing. The maple creemee (soft serve ice cream) is simply the best ice cream I have ever had. We ended up going here twice a day during our visit and even delayed our departure so we could get 'one more maple creemee for the road'. I wish they had this closer to where we live, but this really was the highlight of our whole trip and will be the first place we go when we return.

Great little waterfront ice cream spot. We ordered a maple creemee as it seemed like the "house special." Very nice alternative to the traditional vanilla soft serve.

We went to get icecreams. The shop attendant was very rude, almost aggressive when I asked about the amount of change he gave back.

Took a walk down to the lake after dinner. Despite seem pretty popular. I thought the ice cream was pretty good, although my husband thought it was a bit too thin and was disappointed. It was fun to sit along the bike trail and people watch though.

This Maple soft serve was perfect! And one is last day of the season, the cone was perfectly fresh. He is justifiably proud of his business, the food, and the staff.

MAPLE CREEMEE! Just get it! You won't regret it! Cash only, $4 for a large cone! They also let you sample other flavors if you're not a fan of maple. They give out generous portions of soft serve, so $4 isn't too bad.

Near the Lake Champlain shore, the enthusiastic owner touts the best maple creemee in Vermont. It was so good we had to stop our last day for one more.

I came to Ice Cream Bob's in the summer of 2015 without knowing, or even realizing actually, that this place had a name. I just saw a little shack boasting maple creemees outside of ECHO and the Lake Champlain shoreline. I was with my parents at the time, and it didn't take much convinced to drag my dad along for some soft serve. ;-) That being said, the maple creemee was AMAZING. It was present without being too overwhelming, and the ice cream was a perfect consistency. On a recent day trip to Burlington, I know I wanted another maple creemee before heading back to New York State. Before we hopped on the Lake Champlain Ferry, I swung by real quick to get my fix. A year later, and it's just as delicious! As a connoisseur of New York City ice cream, I've seen a lot and tasted a lot. Sometimes, it's just good to get back to basics. A trip to Ice Cream Bob's is a MUST if you are in that area of Burlington.

Like the maple syrup and the cheeses, the Maple Creemee is a foodie must-try when visiting Vermont. If you have to pick up that one last Maple Creemee before leaving Vermont, the perfect place to get a single, double, or a triple cone is at Ice Cream Bob's. Within walking distance from the Waterfront and just steps from ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, Ice Cream Bob's is a little hot dog and ice cream stand. A Creemee is a soft-serve vanilla ice cream or a frozen custard made with Vermont Maple syrup or maple sugar. When I arrived Ice Cream Bob's, I was in need of something satisfying. I had just drove 2 1/2 hours and I was in need for something refreshing. Ice Cream Bob's Maple Creemee does not compare to the one that I had at Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks. It's not as maplely in flavor, but it was still a very satisfying treat. It's CASH only. There's an ATM on the premises for convenience.

This is a modest little stand alongside the bike path. But it serves amazingly good soft ice cream (called Creemees, which is what we thought the place was called, because of the big sign.) We stopped by twice each day during our visit to Burlington. Delicious soft ice cream!!! The maple-rasberry swirl was our favorite.
