We tried 3 different ice cream venues in Avalon and this one ranks a distant third from the rest. Service was good even though crowded, but the ice cream doesn't match the service. We found Sundae Best to be much better, but try the two...More

Look at the lines- enough said! Apparently not- they require 100 words! LOTS of flavors, nice sized portions and, if you have a group of kids, they have a deal with many scoops and toppings in one dish. They bring it out with a celebratory...More

What makes this place is the fun attitude, and the crazy menu, including the shipwreck: 15 balls of 3 flavors of ice cream, covered in whipping cream and a side of all of their toppings, served in a pirate hat. There are also countless combinations...More

The service was so slow. Last year we went and it was slow, but it was crowded. This year, we went and they were just all standing around!! It took at least ten minutes for them to make our "ship-wrecked". This was my second ship-wreck,...More

Nice assortment of ice cream flavors offered at this clean, large ice cream shop. They even had a bacon sundae (ewwwww) which none of us tried. Apparently they have a magician there on Mondays to entertain the kids. We were there during off season, but...More

Big selection of ice cream and toppings. They also sell fudge. It's very expensive though, a child's size is 3 scoops and it's $4!
