Our friends took us to have an ice cream dessert after dinner. So glad they did. A definite repeat. So many things to choose from. Yummy :)

Kiddie size should be the only option (and should be renamed as A regular size). People tonk kiddie and assume it's child size and order small or large which is MASSIVE. Everyone in our party ordered small or large and it was obscene. I saw...More

It's a great place to bring kids for ice cream! There are lots of flavor a to choose from too as well as a small selection of water ice. They also hold events for families on certain nights of the week!

Lots of choices for ice cream in downtown Avalon. The Buccaneer is a great choice. Many flavors of home made ice cream. They also make their own waffle cones, the great smell of cooking waffle will influence your choice. Try the salted caramel.

Kids got the "ship wrecked" ice cream sundae. LOVED IT!! All the staff are great with kids and patient as they take their time making their choice! Ice cream is fresh and tastes fantastic!

Our group, which ranged in age from 4-years-old to 48, all loved their made-to-order ice cream. They do an excellent job of preparing it fresh, with all natural ingredients. I would have given it 5 stars if they had sugar-free ice cream, which they have...More

We tried 3 different ice cream venues in Avalon and this one ranks a distant third from the rest. Service was good even though crowded, but the ice cream doesn't match the service. We found Sundae Best to be much better, but try the two...More

Look at the lines- enough said! Apparently not- they require 100 words! LOTS of flavors, nice sized portions and, if you have a group of kids, they have a deal with many scoops and toppings in one dish. They bring it out with a celebratory...More
