The lines were long so we thought the ice cream would be fantastic. We had the chocolate and Kilwin's tracks. The chocolate was just average and the Kilwin's tracks lacked tracks! More vanilla ice cream than anything. A lot of money for average ice cream...More

Stopped here for dessert on the recommendation of our waitress. What a great little place. I really enjoy ice cream and this was some of the best I've ever had. The wife had Turtle Cheesecake & I had Double Peanut Butter Pie. Flavors came through...More

Right in downtown Wilmington. Take a walk on the riverwalk and visit Kilwins. Great Fudge and ice cream. The staff was very helpful.

Before you even enter, the smell of the chocolate is so yummy! Delicious ice cream & chocolate - a definite MUST when visiting Wilmington.

The candy would be what you expect. The workers were not friendly. They seemed like they'd rather be anywhere else.

The wait is long sometimes but the ice cream is worth it! They have homemade waffle cones. You can watch them make them right in the window. The chocolate and fudge section looks impressive although I've never bought anything other than ice cream

Even though it was Off Season the store was very busy with a steady stream of customers lined up. The line moved pretty fast and Wait Staff were friendly.
