Socs has been around for years and they still do not disappoint. Lots of great flavors and a great location. Even when it's busy, the line moves pretty good. And doesn't get as crowded as some of the other places around. They have their own parking lot, small but can usually find a spot.

Homemade coffee Oreo ice cream yum! Good size portions for the price. I go here every season. You can get hand packed pints and quarts to go. Peanut butter ice cream is another yummy option

While walking up to the menu board, I was enveloped in a delicious waffle cone aroma. They happily provided generous samples to help me make my decision. 2 scoops (a small!) of Buttercrunch in a fresh waffle cone were all mine. If I'm ever in the area, I will be sure to return.

I had the orange-pineapple ice cream and was not happy. It was very citrus unable to taste pineapple. I was looking forward to the soft serve pineapple, however, it's no longer available. In addition, I sampled peanut butter cup which is vanilla ice cream with chunks of chocolate. Blah! Coffee ice cream strong. Chocolate brownies good. Frappes are good. Plenty... More

A true ice cream stand, one of the last of the dying breed... I've tried many flavors of ice cream here and never been disappointed. Their sundaes are huge. Great frappes. Always crowded on summer nights, but they open in late March so plenty of time to beat the crowds. School kids work here and they're very appreciative of tips.... More

Great ice cream selection. Neighborhood gem. The Brownie Sundae and the Shortcake Sundaes are my favourites. The portion size is very generous and service is fast. The place closes down in winter.

What can I say I ate the whole thing and wished i opted for a large. The size options are perfect, many selections, staff is reasonably friendly and... More

This place is off the beaten path, but WELL worth it! The ice cream is rich and creamy and my daughter who doesn't usually like ice cream raved! Definitely home made! The scoops were big and inexpensive. We dI'd go on the night tropical storm Andrea hit, but we would not have found a parking spot if the weather was... More

Socks is the best in the area, and they did NOT close this winter. We were able to enjoy their ice cream all year long...

We can't wait for Soc's to reopen--this month or the next. (It's closed in the winter.) Their ice cream is fantastic, both in regular and sugar-free versions. My favorite is the small maple walnut cone and my spouse loves the chocolate frappe. Warning: the small cone is a lot bigger than you expect. From early spring to late fall, put... More
