My wife and I were at the shop on wednesday 5/12/10. They have a wonderful selection of hard and soft ice cream and a great tasting yogurt that was like soft ice cream. Also, they have a large selection of various food items to eat for lunch or a simple dinner. GOOD LUCK to them.

I just got back from the grand opening of the Polar Scoops in Oneonta, the place has great food, ice cream and the atmosphere is terrific for kids. I recommend everyone give it a shot.

Everyone's whining about the prices. I say go get ice cream elsewhere if it's too expensive...BUT, after a friend yesterday asked for one small squirt of hershey syrup on his dish of ice cream, and I mean ONE SMALL SQUIRT (& not even hot fudge) and it cost $1...I'm whining too! Business is business but if they'd of just given the teaspoon for nothing, I would've rushed back--not so sure now (whine whine). I wouldn't even have posted this if I could find a website for them / the owners. Good luck tho! I'll be down on rt. 7...ha!

I must say the food prices are very high. This is Oneonta, not NYC. I have found burgers and fries for much less and very fulfilling. I am not talking MickeyD's either. I wish him the best, but unless he lowers the prices and then I think you will do OK, if not it won't be long.

will someone give attention to Cooperstown polar scoops ice cream shops,roboblogger, and daily star who seem to have lost their way all the way to posting in middle village,new york. Desperate, but polar scoops means nothing here. Try Alaska.

What is the price for a burger and fries?

I think it's about 10 bucks.

Oneonta is not,nor will it ever be a tourist trap.

Good luck Polar Scoops.I'm pretty sure they got a whole bunch of funding[loans] from the great people who run Otsego county.

Oneonta will NEVER be a COOPERSTOWN......

I notice when dining at Polar Scoops Oneonta that all the kitchen staff are standing in full view of the dining room wolfing down snacks and dipping chips into a crock of chili? WHAT THE ? Can't the workers get a dinner break, NOT be eating while serving our food, or at least not do it in full view of the customers? OH NO!

Spent a long weekend in Cooperstown and had a craving for ice cream, so I stopped by Polar Scoops (never heard of them). I AM SO GLAD I DID! The ice cream is incredible - creamy, fresh natural flavor, smooth. There aren't enough words to describe how great it was. Hope Polar Scoops is successful for many decades to come.

Is polar scoops closed??

Polar Scoops ONEONTA closed. I see they tried to have specials toward the end...listed on some cryptically hand written sign...too late! Their Cooperstown location will open summers--locals surely can't afford their prices and won't tolerate the quality.
