While visiting the beach we were looking for a treat and to cool off, well we lucked out with some awesome ice cream, friendly service and a comfortable place to hang out! This is a must stop when visiting the Myrtle Beach area!!!

One of the hilights of our 3 month stay. 2 scoops Tuesday and 1/2 price banana splits on Thursday. So many flavors made to order. Even the banana splits. Not much parking, but it works, the same for seating. Picnic benches outside. Kind of fun. Kid friendly of course. Not sure about the other menu items.

We had a coupon for "buy one, get one free". I had a hot fudge sundae and my husband had his first ever banana split. Together they cost less than $6.00 and were excellent.

Their sign says: "Come in as a stranger and leave as a friend." That's true. The people are so nice and friendly, they make you feel a friend. Their ice cream is good ice cream.
