The best ice cream on the island. The lines are long but they go quick. All the flavors look good. So hard to make a decision. The staff here is nice and very quick. We will want to come back

We all scream for ice cream. Best ice cream on the island. If you can't find your flavor there are many others to choose from including sorbets, sherbets, and custards.

This ice cream place has excellent flavors and the taste is amazing! I recently went to the Ice cream shop at Coligny was massively disappointed. I was apprehensive to try this, but it ended up tasting very good. I tried the cookie dough and the ice cream had the taste of almost a custard. It was rich and creamy and... More

My wife and I are pretty much ice cream snobs, and make it a point to visit the top rated places we travel to. This place had a good variety of flavors, but the two we sampled were quite tasteless. Cold and sweet, but little else to write home about. The chocolate shots were really crunchy (maybe that's the way... More

I read the reviews and hoped for much better than what we got. The service was not overly welcoming, and the cotton candy ice cream was freezer burned with chunks of ice in it. Perhaps my expectations were too high seeing five stars, but if you're looking for some sort of idyllic back in time ice cream parlor this is... More

This is the perfect stop for an after dinner treat. We stopped in on a cool rainy evening and had a great experience. They make all their own ice cream and the quality shows. Many unique flavors like Cotton Candy, Chocolate Cayenne, Heath Bar, Banana Pudding. Two people serving ice cream were quick and friendly. The inside is clean and... More

Hilton Head Ice Cream is the best ice cream on the island and they have many flavors. They also have a section where you can add all the sprinkles, and jimmys, and whatever you like, to top off your creation. So good! Actually it's good that I don't live down the south end of the island as I would look... More

They serve THE best ice cream in a lovely, clean shop. All home made and plenty of toppings if you choose to add any to your order. There is an outside deck to enjoy your ice cream or soda and an inside option too.

We always go here for a special treat. It's always busy - the line is out the door. You can pour on the additional sprinkles and whatnot as you wish. So much more here than your regular parlor!

All of our ice cream is homemade the way mom and pop shops used to make ice cream before people started watering down or pumping air into ice cream. Our ice cream is rich in cream and is dense because we do not pump air into our product. We have over 40 flavors available at a time from traditional flavors to more creative flavors. Come on in and give us a try, after all we were voted BEST ICE CREAM in SOUTH CAROLINA by Business Insider in 2015 !
