We visit the OBX at least once every other year, and this is one of the MUST's each trip! They always have a nice variety of flavors and their ice cream is soooo good! Not only do they have very good ice cream, but they also have all kinds of homemade candy and chocolates.

My family really wanted some good ice cream, and heard that this was the place to go. We were not disappointed! It was some of the best of I've had, hands down. I enjoyed my chocolate marshmallow very much, and the rest of my family loved there various flavors as well. Maybe not the cheapest ice cream around, but for... More

Great ice cream parlor with seats inside. Ice cream was tasty, but expensive. Store also includes a coffee bar and candy. Homemade candy and also candy from our childhood.

Very cool ice cream spot! There is loads of candy, old fashioned sodas and assorted treats in this store. We had an ice cream sundae and a frappe- both were amazing!

Home made whipped cream. To die for fudge sauce and great home made ice cream. We've been there twice this week and plan another visit before we leave for home.

My husband and I stopped in after being on the hunt for good ice cream in the outer banks. I was happy with my banana peanut butter ice cream, but my husband said his lacked some flavor. You can tell it is definitely homemade which is nice - but it was a little more icey than homemade ice cream should... More
