Great deal on 2 for 1 banana splits on Thursday's and your choice of the ice cream. The girl working during the day on 12-14 was very nice and helpful, 2 splits for $5.77 was great deal even on a cool day.

We visited a few ice cream shops at the beach and this was our favorite. Prices are more reasonable for the product. A family friendly environment with a diverse menu!

They have many unusual flavors, along with the traditional. I believe they make their own ice cream. Delicious!!
