We've stopped here a couple of different times and the ice cream never disappoints. Plenty of flavors and offerings to choose from. They also sell shells and some wind chimes. They offer miniature golf for those feeling so included. We definitely be back again.

After dinner one night we walked over and the line was out the door. But the line moved fast and they had so many fresh flavors. Great fun place to get some ice cream

Best ice cream in OBX by far. We come here each time we visit the OBX and always have a happy stomach. We've even had Uncle Eddy's for supper! Yummy.
