We drove past this spot several times before finally stopping in. I'm so glad we did. I think you can always tell a great place by how many locals are there. My theory held true. I had the Reuben and it was delicious. As far as ice cream goes, I recommend the Jolted Cow flavor if you like coffee ice... More

Recently a visiting friend wanted to treat us to an ice cream so we decided to stop. The place was packed but the service was very efficient. They had a great selection and even the small serving was huge. Can't wait to go back.

I have driven past this ice cream parlour for years and finally stopped. As soon as I walked in the door you could smell grease from hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. The floors and counters were really dirty. The portions were very large and the ice cream was delicious. Yes it is a good place to go but... More

We were departing on a boat tour to Morris Island and needed some quick eats in the area, we stumbled upon this restaurant and grabbed food to go. Staff was so friendly, portions were huge and price was cheap! The food was delicious, we definitely want to go back for lunch during our stay.

The food here is perfect for lunch. The Tuna Salad was fresh. The onion rings were good. The raspberry chocolate ice cream is my favorite.

We stopped here after passing it literally 100 times in our lifetime and hearing so many good things about it. As expected, it was packed. That was okay. We got in line, ordered 2 BLTs (1 regular, 1 with just bacon for a picky child), a cheese fry, a loaded fry & 4 small drinks. That came up to $34... More

We stopped in after church for some ice cream and yogurt, unfortunately they were out of yogurt. We got a brownie sundae, two medium cups of ice cream and a basket of fries. The ice cream sizes are HUGE but wonderful. Parking can be a bit tricky but worthy it.

It was nice, and a few years ago I had a pretty good "Philly" cheesesteak, but this trip was purely for ice cream. It was a Saturday evening, and cool weather had moved in, so there were not a lot of people, but things moved slowly. Quality was good, but the prices made me feel like I was a captive... More

Went here with my sons for an ice cream supper . The place was clean, clerks were friendly and the ice cream was good. Had a lot of different selections of hard ice cream. Recommend others to go.
