“Great Ice Cream, Friendly Service”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The ice cream is very good. It isn't homemade, it is by Hershey's but it is delicious. It is a friendly little place that makes a wonderful stop for travelers and locals alike. It has become almost a tradition for my wife and I to have an ice cream there on Sunday afternoon.

“Tiny place, big personality + milkshakes!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We visited this tiny ice cream shop based upon reviews indicating that the owner was charming, fun, informative and the ice cream was great. The reviewers were correct. Immediately upon entering the establishment a big, booming voice holds forth with a verbal tour of the offerings. He is so friendly, it just lifts your spirit to listen to him. Of course, being in Manteo/Outer Banks of NC is uplifting in itself!!! The ice cream is wonderful - Hershey's, and the milkshake was the best I ever tasted. The proprietor through in a "surprise" on the bottom of the shake and handed me a spoon with which to enjoy the surprise. I'll let you all find out what that surprise is for yourselves. I highly recommend this place. Although we did not eat there, the burgers frying in the place smelled HEAVENLY.

“The best!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Wonderful service, great food--best pulled pork, burgers, and New York hot dogs for lunch/dinner! The veggie burgers were also delicious. The kids loved the clown cone sundaes and the play dough ice cream. We must return!

“Not homemade but great ice cream!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

I was a bit skeptical when they readily told me the icecream was not homemade, but made by Hershey's but we wanted ice cream so we gave it a try. It was delicious! Actually batter than the homemade ice cream we paid much more for at another place. And the young ladies running the place were just so nice and sweet! It was a pleasure to eat there. Would definitely go again!
