Found this ice cream spot driving around a few weeks ago...and Oh My Goodness!! Their ice cream is amazing!! I got the Carolina Crunch and it's the perfect blend of sweet and salty, and my 8 y.o. gets the Birthday Cake with sprinkles. The employees are sweet, helpful with suggestions, and FAST! A must try spot for ice cream lovers!

Ice cream is really good. Can get busy at times. Has corn hole game to play while waiting. Order at one window, pick up at another window. Outside seating only.

We went there in a very hot summer day. We chose the place based on the amazing online reviews. When we got there, we were disappointed that the seating was only outdoors. The bees bothered us for a while. The ice cream was also somehow disappinting, as we expected a healthy, flavorful, not so sweet icecream.

We stopped in on our way home by chance for a sweet treat. Fast friendly service at the walk up window, plenty of outdoor seating and lots of different flavors to choose from. The pumpkin was amazing with pieces of crust in the ice cream and 'Carolina crunch' was tasty. I high recommend this place for a yummy sweet treat!

My family and I have been to Fresh on multiple occasions this summer and have enjoyed great ice cream every time. We've tried a variety of flavors and all are outstanding. The portions are large, so one scoop should satisfy everyone, even the kids who have eyes bigger than their stomachs. There's no inside seating, so be prepared to sit... More

Fresh Ice Cream serves ice cream from grass fed hormone free cows. Flavors are local and luscious. There are also outside games for children and families. Great local hangout.

Thank Ouida M
