Saw this place three years ago when I first came, and I've been back every year since! Delicious warm cookies with ice cream and favorite toppings! A MUST for Chincoteague visits

“Innovate, Fun Dessert! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

We spent the day at the beach and finished off the day with a delicious fresh, warm cookie topped by our favorite choice of ice cream, toppings, whipped cream and topped with a cherry! The young lady is working was very nice and looked happy to be working! She was very attentive to the children and even made sure we had plenty of napkins (and let's face it, with a group of kids this is invaluable!) The kiddos we enamored by the creative chairs and tables. Having the plastic hard hats for kids to wear ($1.50each.- affordably priced) was a neat touch! What I thought was just the cherry on top was that the young lady working gave each of the kiddos a BYOC kids tattoo, but asked us politely first if she could give them each one. We loved the old fashion customer service just ad much as we loved the ice cream and cookies!

Over all we had a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this hidden little gem on Chincoteague Island!

“Our 10 year old son LOVED it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

This is a cute little fair style outdoor dessert stop. You get to choose your base cookie (homemade), ice cream (Hershey's), and finally toppings. The server was very friendly and even posed for a pic with our son. The dessert was large enough for all of us to share. Priced well for portion size. Has outdoor seating with umbrellas.

“Fun and flavorful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

BYOC was a fun stop. You'll see it on the side of the road. There is some seating, though minimal if crowded. There was no line for us, but that shocks me since it was so delicious.

You choose a cookie, an ice cream (1 or 2 scoops) and a topping (or two). The cookie was great, but it was really the ice cream that made the dessert over the top fabulous. (Island Creamery was wonderful, but my boyfriend and I both liked the ice cream at BYOC better!)

It's interactive, it's delicious, you can't go wrong!

(Only con: minimal beverage options).

“Oh My what a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Be ready to enjoy great ice cream on a huge cookie! Delicious and well worth the stop. Nothing like a good ice cream on a hot night.
