“Great little place”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped for lunch one day and had a great experience here. Burgers were great and we had a pineapple dole whip which was very good. Loved that's they have the little play ground for kids, our daughter loved it. Great prices too.

“Personable, professional and perfect!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The family friendly atmosphere is wonderful. A fantastic compliment to their tasty dishes. Burgers and hotdogs like home (only better) and garlic large pretzels ending with sea salt Carmel custard! What a delight! A playscape for the children and happy smiling atmosphere!

“Best on the Beach”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

DeNucci's is a few blocks from the beach on Sadler Road, one of the main roads that cross the Island. Tucked away in a shady spot with fenced kids playground upfront, cool air-conditioned seating inside with clean restroom and drive thru window.

Family owned and a few years old, DeNucci's has the best ice cream and related goodies on the island. It is easy to get to and park and their variety and quality is unmatched on the Island. They even have great coffee and hot dogs so great for a dog and a shake!

The nearest competitor is several miles away in historic Fernandina Beach. The ice cream is great there as is the chocolates, but parking is an issue, and it is nowhere near the beach. Two good options, but DeNucci's is a first rate operation. Some comments about cost. Good ice cream is not cheap and combined with a good clean operation and well trained smiling staff, you should be happy to spend the extra 50cents over the DQ. It is a very different experience for sure. Enjoy:-)

“Good but expensive”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Just like title says-good but pricey. We also tried the DQ, but it was poorly run and dirty. I would definitely spend the extra money and try the local spot.
