We came at the end of the season & it wasn't busy at all. Yet, the proprietor was extremely rude-yelling at kids to "shut his door" & then grumbling as he walked around. He was rude to my teen, wouldn't serve my teen until he...More

Place is small and cramped. Service was not friendly. Overpriced for ice with some syrup poured on it. One child liked it and my teenager threw it away (peach flavor).

Not worth the effort. Don't ask a simple question or you'll get ridiculed by the manager or owner which ever he is. Never been treated like that in any establishment. Go to another shop for ice cream.

At the boardwalk in Duck overlooking the sound, perfect for a dessert and watching the sunset. And the ice cream is very good.

Our son wanted a snow-ball while we were there for a wedding. We have had quite a few snow-balls in our lifetime having lived in multiple areas where they were plentiful. An older gentleman was handling a customer in front of us. He proceeded to...More

My husband and I came to the outer banks for our honeymoon. I had been bugging my husband for ice cream and we found this place. I have to say that it wasn't very good. The ice cream was bland and he kept making comments...More
