Decided to give this place a try for our after dinner ice cream treat. Very busy and very overpriced. Finally got to front and out of several flavors. Employees rude and complaining to customers how long they've worked that day. Do yourself a favor and go to the Surf City Pier for your ice cream. Less expensive and much better.

Sweet Island has good food and ice cream treats too. It was understaffed and a bit overwhelmed by the crowd. Perhaps a little pricey for a custard stand, but it’s a tourist attraction. Cheap sweatshirts for sale $8.99. We ate outside, and there were no clean tables whatsoever.

Cute inside. That’s about the only positive. Ordered 3 burgers and bill was $31. Buns were stale, burgers were frozen and fries were bland. Never asked how we wanted burger cooked and they came out like a hockey puck. Didn’t try the ice cream. One and done it was so bad.

Great choice to stop for lunch. Friendly people, fast service, fantastic burger and fries and plenty of it. Sweet Island added to a great day on the island with my sister's visiting from Maryland.

Guy behind the counter (taking orders and prepping food) was not wearing a mask, so we turned around and walked out. Not acceptable considering NC's covid numbers are on the rise.
