A Syracuse staple for over 60 years, Carol's Polar Parlor is definitely not something you want to pass up. On a yelp review Stephanie C. wrote: "Carols polar parlor has so many different flavors of ice cream and cones. The possibilities are endless. I got the turtle sundae. It has vanilla ice cream with hot fudge camel walnuts and whip cream and of course a cherry. It was so decadent!! The gentleman at the counter was very fast and friendly. The prices are average. Although I feel like for the price the did give a small sundae. I also feel their portions are also smaller than at Pete's polar parlor. I would go back though because the ice cream was delicious!!"
