This is obviously THE place to get ice cream in downtown old Wilmington. Everybody was here. The ice cream, fudge and baked treats are as good as you can find anywhere - bar none.

Everything I have ever ordered here has been great! The ice cream, the waffle cones, fudge, candy, popcorn...you can't go wrong. The service is fast and friendly but expect a long line out of the door during tourist season. I say it's worth the wait!

Kilwins has an amazing variety of delicious home made ice cream, fudge, and assorted treats. The staff are friendly and offer samples upon request of the fudge and ice cream. If you get the ice cream try the freshly made waffle cones.

You can't go wrong at Kilwin's. We had just been on an evening tour and were delighted that this Kilwin's stayed open late. Of course, on a hot, humid night ice cream is a must. There was much more to enjoy than just the ice...More

Kilwins has a ton of delicious ice cream flavors and every kind of fudge. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the biggest problem is getting those in your party to decide what they want! They also have unique " drugstore" candies like gummy alligators,...More
