A measely 3 burgers, 1 hot dog, and 2 fries were $40+. The food was slightly better than fast food chains but 4x as pricey. If in Manteo and you want this sort of food save your money and go to McDonalds. The ice cream...More

I love ice cream and I was assuming (which you know what the means) that this creamery made their own ice cream. This is not the case. It is Hersey Ice Cream which was consumable. There was some fudge and chocolates in the display case....More

What a wonderful place. The ice cream selection is varied, the shop is kept so clean you feel comfortable ordering anything and the gentleman the runs the shop is careful to get you your order quickly and with lots of good conversation!

We dropped by for an ice cream one night and the whole thing was a bit surreal. There wasn't a single other person there - which is not, in itself, a big deal - but the whole place just felt deserted (no pun intended). There...More
