“Good ice cream, better location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

The ice cream is good, but a little pricey. Though the location is tough to beat. We pop in for an ice cream every trip to Sea Pines.

“Convenient Ice Cream Shop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Our condo is right next door to the Sea Pines Marina, so the Salty Dog Ice Cream Shop is a nightly walk after dinner for our family (my husband and I, daughter and her husband, 6 and 9 year old grands). Nothing really special except the smiles on the grandchildren's faces while they are eating their cones. Typical beach ice cream shop, flavors and prices. They have plenty of tables so seating is usually not a problem. The acoustic music from the area beside it is a nice touch for the grown-ups in the group. A must stop if you are in the Salty Dog area and need a snack.

“Yummy creaminess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

Love their butter pecan. Like the adjacent Salty Dog cafe, I've seen their portion go down and prices go up over the years, which is a testament to the popularity of this spot. It's a great mid-bike ride destination to cool off with a sweet treat, and then bike away some of the calories.
