Polly’s Freeze is an icon for southern Indiana, opening in 1952. Just off I-64 at the Georgetown exit, it isn’t a far drive from downtown Louisville, and is definitely worth the short drive! They’re only open about half the year, so my family always takes advantage of beautiful summer weather and makes a couple trips each year. Last year, we went blueberry picking at Bryant’s Farm first, and this year went to Mount St. Francis for a nice hike before heading to Polly’s for lunch!
At this restaurant, you place your order at a window, wait for your number to be called, and eat at any of their wooden or concrete picnic tables around their property. I have never met an unfriendly employee in my many visits. Even with my daughter’s nut allergy, they are good at making sure we make the right choices. They have a wide range of menu items, like hamburgers, chicken fingers and sandwiches, hot dogs, French fries, onion rings, etc. Many people get their “Pollyburger,” which is just a larger version of their regular hamburger. Here is their menu, which is posted in front on their walls.
We always order food first (always a corn dog for me and a pollyburger for the rest of my family!). When we’re close to finished, we will decide what type of ice cream treat to get! They have such a wide range of ice cream and dessert treats that it is hard to choose! I got their brownie bliss flurry last time and it was fantastic! They also have a baby ice cream cone for kids which is adorable!
Polly’s is a great, fun adventure that you have to go on! My family loves it and we always make sure we make it up there each year! The food is good, the atmosphere is fun, and we always have a great time!
