We visited Sophia's on our first day in Myrtle Beach and ordered a banana split. They allow you to basically build your own, which is wonderful! We had butter
pecan, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream with pineapple, hot fudge, and strawberry toppings. The ice cream is fantastic, the toppings even more so. The strawberry and pineapple had chunks of fruit in them rather than just being syrup as is true of most places. Add in the fact that the owners are personable, community minded, and very pet friendly... what more could you ask for?

Thank you so much for kind review! It was a pleasure meeting both of you! BUT most of all I would like to thank you for your generous donation to All4Paws. We both appreciate it very much and so do the animals! Hope to see you again should you be back in MB!

Wife and I stopped in one evening for a treat. Wonderfully surprised and satisfied!

PROS
- Modest prices with generous portion size and very good election
- PET FRIENDLY! Special doggy sundaes available; free biscuit treats on the counter
- Free samples of ice cream to help you choose
- VERY clean and well maintained premises (the owner wiped down the outside tables for sand and sea mist TWICE in the 20 minutes we were there!)
- VERY friendly and personable staff. The husband/wife team who own and operate this place are sincere, humorous, and engaging... just the right personalities for such an enterprise
CONS
- NONE (a first for me in these reviews!)

MOST HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ICE CREAM SHOP

We did visit Sophia's ice cream a couple times during our stay at the Surfside Beach Resort. It's very close to the hotel, so you just walk across the street and can have ice cream. They have good hard icecream and yummy softserve also.

good choices, clean, outside seats. stayed open later than other local places which gave us a place to get an ice cream when we came back at night.

Supporting the restoration of the pier and yummy ice cream. It was a win all around. Chocolate soft serve was smooth and delicious. The pecan coconut cookie on the sundae was one of the best I have tasted and I am a baker. We would return! Enjoy the props in the lifeguard chair.
