Their hand dipped ice cream on a sugar wafer is the best. Both my husand and I rarely get this type of ice cream. It was a great treat!

In downtown Beaufort, NC you will find the General Store on main street. There is a porch with seating where you can rest and enjoy an ice cream cone and watch the boats sail by on Taylor's Creek. The store has ice cream, candy, and lots of inexpensive souviners to take home, as well as t-shirts, hats, and other clothing with pirate and Beaufort, NC logos on them. This store is well worth a stop if you are in Beaufort.

My family always looks forward to stopping into the General Store when we are in town. (Which is about once a year)... It is not a typical general store... It is set up for tourists and we happen to like that. It makes us feel welcome in the town. We enjoy their ice-cream and their homemade fudge is outstanding... mmmm.... and no, it is not a restaurant... but it is a store that serves ice-cream...

They offer souvenirs, Ornaments, toys, T-shirts, Long sleeve shirts, Sweatshirts, Jackets, Hats, taffy and other sundry fun items like costume jewelry, pirate things and more... We just love to look and see what they have. We are a family, so there is something that will catch each of our eyes.

It is charming. It is quaint and it is fun. We enjoy it and have for years. We look forward to being back again next year... It is one of our favorite places in Beaufort. We have only had excellent experiences there and again yes, it is geared to tourists.

Great stop as you're meandering through Beaufort. Benches out front to sit on while you enjoy your icecream. Employees very friendly.

Clean bathrooms, decent fudge, sub-par ice cream, and overpriced nick-nacks. Typical tourist trap despite the name. This is not a restaurant. Also, after the hurricane last year, they dumped all of their spoiled ice cream into Taylor's Creek on the waterfront. The smell was horrendous and it created an environmental hazard.
