“I love Fatty's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We had a wonderful time! The owner, Jeff, himself was our ice cream scooper, and he was very nice. The ironic name is what drew us to the shop, but the amazing taste and owner are what will bring us back! So many flavors, you'll love it!

“Local guy committed to his heritage.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Fatty's deserves five stars for a number of reasons! #1 the French fires! We ate them on the beach with our hot dogs. Wonderful and a minutes walk from our umbrella. #2 Hershey's ice cream. #3 the shop has a cool, beachy vibe. #4 a wonderful sunset kayak tour. #5 Jeff! He is simply a pleasure. A smart young man. How inspiring that he is committed to his local community and his family heritage on the island. I wish him luck with his enterprise.

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Took a morning kayak tour with Jeff and we all loved the experience. Myself, my husband, and our 3 teenage daughters have never kayaked before, but it was a breeze. Jeff shared some local history and pointed out many different types of wildlife including a sting ray, skate, and a snake. But the best part was "parking" the kayaks and wading in The Sound looking for sea life. Jeff found a live scallop, cleaned it out, and shared the good part with everyone to taste. Fresh from The Sound.....better than any restaurant. The kayak tour was money well spent that everyone enjoyed.

“Yummy ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Yummy ice cream in a relaxed environment.
Great selection of flavours to ponder and choose from and not too badly priced either.
Fully filled the cone too so loads of ice cream too.

Grab a cone and sit on a rocker on the porch and enjoy.
