Husband and wife putting their hearts and souls into tasty treats. I love mixing up their flavors into my own custom combo. Shakes are great. Cute souvenir shop to sit in while you enjoy.

Our family visits Oak Island for one week every year and we hit Frosty's every single night. We wouldn't even consider getting ice cream anywhere else on the island. Matter of fact getting ice cream somewhere else on the island would make me feel like I was cheating on my wife. Great and friendly owners who are also husband and... More

We are always pleased with their waffle ice cream cones, sundaes or thick milkshakes! Their flavors are very good, rich and creamy too. They also have a nice gift shop with both local and novelty items.

Cute little ice cream and gift shop. This place is small with a few outside tables. Only about 10 choices for ice cream but all very good. We went there with our granddaughter who has peanut allergies. to insure there wasn't any cross contamination they went and got a brand new 5 gallon tub and a clean scoop for her... More

This is a weird place. There's an unpersonable man scooping flavorless ice cream in the front & tables surrounded by a tacky souvenir shell shop in the back. After he served me, he went to the very back & no one came out the whole time I was eating & browsing. A customer came in TWICE and still no one... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat while on Oak Island. Kids love the ice cream and I get a banana split. They also have souvenirs for sale. The owners are so friendly and customer service is great. It can get a bit busy but the line moves quick.

I was craving ice cream after a hot day on the beach and figured we'd give Frosty's a shot. I'm so glad we did! I had the coffee ice cream with chocolate and cookies (I forget what they call it) as a hot fudge sundae. My boyfriend tried another unique flavor in a waffle cone. He said the waffle cone... More
