My husband and I came to the outer banks for our honeymoon. I had been bugging my husband for ice cream and we found this place. I have to say that it wasn't very good. The ice cream was bland and he kept making comments because I didn't want whipped cream. I used to be a pastry chef so it's... More

Great selection of flavors. A great view of the sunset can be seen from their establishment. Make sure you stop in and have this refreshing treat.

My favorite place to have ice cream when I am visiting the banks. Jeff, the owner/operator, is the best. Edy's ice cream is what he sells. Try the sugar free vanilla/chocolate swirl. I tis good!!

My family wanted ice cream while we were doing some shopping. We found this place. They have average ice cream. Nothing special. The bill for our family of six was about $30.

This place stinks. The owner is rude and overcharged us. We tried explaining the situation to her and she didn't listen to a word of what we were saying. Nothing about this place even rates a star.

If I could give this place a zero out of five stars, I would... As soon as you walk through the door, you are greeted with one of the worst smells that I have experienced at a food establishment in my life... and once you get served, you will appreciate the smell as it is the best part of it...

In the evening I wanted a scoop of ice cream in a cup. Found this place around the corner from where we stayed... wish I would have skipped it. Sorry, but paying $3.99 for a single scoop of Edy's Ice Cream in a cup (75¢ more if you want a std cone) just seems excessive and taking advantage. I should... More

Decent ice cream, but rather expensive. The hard ice cream is good, I would not recommend the soft serve, though, sort of icy and flavorless.

What a horrible place. The soft serve was lousy and what's so special about Edy's ice cream that's warrants $10 for 2 ice cream cones. Save your $$$$.
