The line was long but it moved quickly. The staff was friendly and there were lots of options (not just ice cream). There was a foosball table for the kids to play while they wait!

Blue Bell ice cream is notoriously good, but the Key Lime Pie milkshake with graham cracker crumbs left much to be desired. The lime flavor was very weak, leaving my $6 milkshake tasting like vanilla with crumbs. The wait staff was very friendly - kudos...More

We sat and played checkers on a giant board while eating our ice cream. Fun and funky interior decor. Also has outdoor picnic table seating.

We stopped here for dessert. The place was cute but the service people acted like it was an inconvenience to sell us some ice cream. We got two small scoops in a cup for $6.00 each. I think that is very expensive since they didn't...More

cutest Ice cream shop and employee was so nice. I took a lot of great pictures, and it was actually inexpensive for beach ice cream.

We stopped in one evening for dessert. They serve Blue Bell ice cream not home-made. Still good ice cream. I had the warm brownie sundae which was excellent. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the plastic spoon I was given...More

I'm sorry about the spoons. I'm going to change them out. I guess I got a bad batch. 😬

Great find on Easter evening! All 6 of us got something different & ate it while enjoying checkers and foosball.

After 8 years in Port Aransas I have moved down the main street, Alister, after new owners bought the building I was in. I re-opened in February 2013 . If you want to keep having my Famous Brownie Sundaes, coffee shakes, Key Lime Pie shake, cheesecake, apple pie and the Big Fat Banana Split come to the new 2700 sq. ft. shop. Same bright pink and yellow colors with the decor collected from my travels around the world. If you go looking for me in my old location KNOW that it is not me. There is only one Desserted Island! Smell the brownies!
