Not any nice atmosphere & ice cream is nothing special & very small portions. The owner is not only unfriendly but bad tempered. Go anywhere else.

Good selection of flavors and a nice area to sit outside. There are always families around with happy children - overall a very friendly place.

Really expensive . Had one small scoop in a cup and was shocked that it was almost $4.00. Ice cream was average. I went because I read it was homemade but it wasn't. Should have went to Ben and Jerrys across the way.

We all truly enjoyed our ice creams. The staff was great, they had seating outside. A must try when in LBI.

The places is a bit small, the ice cream was good but, the owner appears to be just a miserable guy. Very unprofessional and seemingly disinterested in how he handles his paying customers. If I were you, I'd go else where.
