Absolutely love this little chain! They have vegan and keto flavors that they switch out every day(or week, not 100 percent sure). It can have a long line though, so be prepared on their busy days! Totally worth it in my opinion

They do their best with trying to keep the line moving. They may need another sign of the list of flavors, because many people don't see it until they get up to the counter, and by then it's too late to be moving quickly. I knew I wanted to taste test three and then decide. The flavors I tried were Kahlua, Vegan Root Beer, and White Chocolate Espresso. We decided to get a two scoop of Espresso and Kahlua. That want a good idea to mix, because they kinda blended as opposed to mixing and coming each other. The coffee flavor was very strong. Both were still good!

Excellent Premium butter-cream ice cream! It's a personal favorite of mine and the guests that visit. Location could improve as you have to stand and wait outside just to get inside.

Nice staff! Long line but it moved quickly. Glad I tried it but nothing spectacular. The ice cream has a different sticky texture that was interesting. Good flavor but again nothing spectacular.

Ice cream was great. Vegan ice cream some of the best I had ever. I will return for that and I even wait on the long summer line for it. I recommend but be prepared for the line, not because service is poor but rather because everyone wants this ice cream.

Kept hearing about how good the ice cream was before I visited the city. I usually order a vanilla milkshake to compare place to place and they didn't disappoint. Very cool atmosphere and love the homemade ice cream. I'll be stopping again next time I'm in town to try the unique flavors.

I really wanted to give a bad review because I figured there was no way the ice cream was worth the wait, but it's pretty good. Dutch Chocolate and Vanilla bean were amazing. I'd recommend staying away from the more "exotic" flavors.

My initial thought was they are pricey but excellent. But you are getting a premium product made the old fashioned way. We like to try their new flavors. Give them a try for a real treat.

Simply the best. Fresh, homemade ice cream with interesting flavors all the time. They offer keto-friendly and vegan options. Service is quick and friendly. If you are in the Old Market, you have to stop here.

Ted and Wally's management and staff went above and beyond for my daughter's 6th birthday gathering this Memorial Day weekend. They were patient and empathetic to my son's food allergies, for starters.Also, they kindly wrote a birthday message to my birthday to my daughter on the flavor board, which she loved.Some time us we Moms are down to the wire with birthday party prep and can be a little excessive with our requests, but they made me feel like I wasn't a bother at all! I so appreciated this!

The Butterum Coffee ice cream was amazing! It was a nice cool treat on a very hot day. I would highly recommend giving it a try! I think the flavors change daily.

I went to Ted & Wally's because I was headed this way on vacation and it was recommended to me. I thought that the customer service was great and I was even more impressed by how good the ice cream was. I had a waffle cone with dutch chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream and i enjoyed every second of it. I will definitely come back the next time we head this way.

Phenomenal homemade style ice cream. Not super cheap, but a great value for what you get. Went here with a group of friends as an alternative to going to a bar with the rest of our group and thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of booth space to sit in.

They do have at least one vegan ice cream option per day, which I appreciate. However, the cones are not vegan (which is a huge part of the ice cream experience!). I found this out after a rather disappointing customer service exchange this weekend. I asked the 2 guys behind the counter if the cones were vegan, and one replied no. So, I asked if I could get one scoop of the vegan flavor in a dish. Then the second guy turned to the first one and said "Are our dishes vegan too?" in a sarcastic tone. If you're going to offer a vegan flavor, train the staff to treat customers with respect. And maybe think about vegan cone options, as well.

Excellent ice cream. Very cool atmosphere. Reasonably priced. A lot of odd flavors of ice cream, but that is what they are known for. I wish they had a few flavors every time that you could count on being there.

An Omaha classic!Fresh farm to table, no flavor is the same from day to day. From classics like chocolate and vanilla to more adventurous ones, like Negro Modelo or habenero, Ted & Wally's has it all! The scoops are very generous, and if you don't get your fill you can take a pint or quart home.

One of the high points of Omaha. The ice cream's texture must be experienced to be believed - rich, decadent, and smooth. On top of that, the flavor mix is inventive and ever-changing. This place rocks.

It is snowing in mid April but there is still a line for ice cream. They make their own here. The flavors change every day. If you want boring flavors go somewhere else. This is 14% butterfat gold so enjoy responsibly .

Best ice cream place in Omaha. They always have new stuff on the menu every time I'm in. There are a few classics but generally most of the menu is novel and full of tasty options. They're not afraid to experiment with new stuff and generally the experiments go over really well.

They have a great, unique selection of handmade ice creams that change daily and a good selection of hard to find sodas. The atmosphere is cozy and really feels like an old soda shop, but seating is extremely limited. Well worth a visit!

Extremely popular, especially weekend evenings and nights, with the line pretty consistently out the door. For a good reason, though: the ice cream is great, locally made, and always with fun flavors like Star Crunch or Thin Mint, or vegan options. They also take Apple/Google Pay.

My family absolutely loves this place. They always have some sort of traditional flavor and then a selection of flavors for the more adventurous eater. Even in winter there are people in and out. Don't be intimidated if you see a line in the summer because it is quick moving and absolutely worth the wait.

Back in 2015, went on an awesome family vacation in the west. This Omaha was a halfway stop on our way to Colorado. While here, we stopped by Ted and Wally's. I got the artichoke and cream cheese ice cream, mostly just to say I had it. Call me insane but that is some killer ice cream!

How can you not love their ice cream? With so many flavors and sugarfree or vegan options offered frequently too. It is a "must" stop for our family. Pricey but a great treat.

Solid old school ice cream, very cool to see the ancient churns making old fashioned ice cream. The ice cream itself is OK but not great, more of an experience than a place for great ice cream. Very cool for kids.

Waited in line for a pretty long time, but it was well worth the wait. As someone who has worked in an ice cream shop for a few years, their flavors are unique, spot on and delicious.

The ice cream wasn’t bad. But it wasn’t good either. It was kind of icy and we were uninspired by the flavor selection. They seemed more random than appealing. We defaulted to chocolate.

Excellent ice cream. My colleagues told me about this ice cream shop, Ted and Wally's, and said that it was some of the best homemade ice cream in all of America. I confess, it was really good. I had vanilla bean with Oreo topping. They had double dutch chocolate ice cream. Other flavors included cinnamon roll and butter cookie butter, strawberry rhubarb pie, and lots of other unique flavors. It's a fabulous outfit just across the street from the Hyatt Hotel.

Very nice classic ice cream parlor. Ice cream is made as real as possible (few artificial ingredients, if any). Staff were very friendly and atmosphere was very welcoming.Ice cream was good, very flavorful, unique texture and taste. Flavours are very inventive, from dark chocolate to corn to blue curacao. Obviously a careful business who know what customers want in ice cream and it seems they've understood for a while. Definitely will be back.

Totally rockin old fashion ice cream shop. They have creative flavors that include a spicy blend and avocado from time to time. Worth the stop in if you're in town. They are a long time tradition in Omaha right down town.

Great service and usually enjoy their flavors! But when I visited recently, I couldn't hardly find a unique or specialty flavor that I enjoyed, and they were also sold out of a couple flavors including pumpkin (which I do like) -- so a little disappointing. I'm sure I'll have a better experience next time!

Great homemade ice cream with a variety flavors, some funky like hot and spicy ice cream. Charming interior, looks like a converted old gas station, benches around outside as well where you can sit on a warm evening.

Great shop with amazing malts. They had durian flavored ice cream for the day which I wish I had but I don't trust Nebraska to have durian so I declined. Nice spot to visit after dinner.

The ice cream was good, but I only saw maybe 2 flavors on the menu that were different than most ice cream shops. I thought the ice cream was decent but it would be nice to have a few more selections of unique flavors.

Usually a line once you get in this extremely popular ice cream shop. But their house made ice cream can not be beat. Employees are super friendly. This is a must stop place in the old market!!

Best ice cream in Omaha hands down.always something strange to try and always good.my last visit I tried one called Chinese 5 spice if you are familiar with what that is you would be surprised to find it in ice cream.but it was amazing.my advice if it sounds weird try it they have never done me wrong.all the ice cream is made right out front in these large old times machines in big vats of ice the ice cream you are eaten was probably made that morning

Simply amazing home-made ice-cream. Had the "Roasted Sweet Corn"; who would've thought it would be awesome as ice-cream?! Can't wait to go back.

The only downside was the crazy long line. Of course, my perception of that was heavily colored by the two women behind us who were complaining about the *sprinkling* rain and saying that tattoos are "disgusting" (I have a good bit of visible ink). Other than that, the ice cream itself was neat and VERY flavorful. We ordered a sampler and I chose watermelon and Velveeta and crackers. They both tasted spot-on...which was interesting. The establishment was quite messy, though, with ice cream stickiness covering the tables and floor. If they'd keep up on thier cleaning it would be a much better experience, but we enjoyed it.

It was good, homemade ice cream. However, I wasn't overly impressed by the flavors. The line appeared really long but moved quickly. There wasn't much room inside for seating, which way fine because it was a nice night.

How delicious is Ted and Wally's ice cream? I may have flown to Omaha one time for the sole purpose of satisfying a craving of their sweet treats. The rich, creamy, thick ice cream is the best I have tasted and worth a stop whenever I am in the area. Cheers!
