Iowa Ice Cream Road Trip at Arty's Ice Cream & Grill in Wilton, Iowa

Week three of our Iowa Ice Cream Road Trip brought us to a restaurant not only known for their ice cream, but also for their burgers!  A double win!  Arty's Ice Cream & Grill in Wilton, Iowa lived up to the hype and our family left filled to the brim.

Normally as part of our Iowa Ice Cream Road Trip we look for small town, seasonal ice cream shops, but twice now in 2021 we have hit the jackpot with seasonal restaurants not only serving delicious ice cream, but amazing food too!  Arty's Ice Cream & Grill initially came onto our radar after it was named a Top Ten finalist for the Iowa Best Burger Contest.  Then after talking to some local friends about Arty's they told us that their ice cream was equally worth the trip!

We loved the unique and creative menu at Arty's.  Per recommendation of a local friend, we tried their "special" ice cream creation of the day and when we went it was their Snickers Galore - a chocolate tornado with caramel, big chunks of snickers and whipped cream topped with a dusting of cinnamon and a churro!  It wasn't a combination I would have put together but it worked!  You can check their Facebook Page for updates on their specials.

Doesn't our Snickers Galore look amazing?!

Their ice cream menu is based off their flavorful, soft serve ice creams of vanilla, chocolate, twist and raspberry.  We tried a little bit of everything on our visit.  The vanilla soft serve tasted like homemade ice cream and was delicious with any of their toppings in a tornado.  Their raspberry soft serve is made every Tuesday and is available till it's gone each week.

I'll also recommend their strawberry shake!  One of my daughters, Miss L, had their strawberry shake that is made with their vanilla soft serve and real strawberries; it was one of the best I've had in a long time.

We were impressed with everything we tried at Arty's and their menu has so many creative options, we'll have to make a trip back!  This summer Arty's kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday from 1 to 9 p.m. and on Sundays they're open for ice cream only from 5 to 8 p.m.  They have both indoor and outdoor seating available and when we visited it was all utilized, as well as take out orders we saw going out the door continuously.  The restaurant was busy but the staff was friendly & fast!

So treat your self and go on your own Ice Cream Road Trip!  Where are you going to go?

  1. I've never been there, but this place seems pretty nice. I can tell you that I decided to start exploring various states not so long ago, and I hope I won't have nay problems with car rental services because I don't own a car. I've already managed to find Exotic Car Rentals Miami, and hopefully, there are similar services in many states.
