Stopped here on a 64° Saturday night in September. Ice cream was good. Three of us had the the three different types of cones offered: sugar, cake, and waffle. Line wasn't long and speedy service with only one woman at window. Can't imagine what this...More

We ordered a small coffee cone and mint chocolate chip cone. They were pretty big servings for small cones. Prices were a little high for us but was worth it. Great and friendly service.

Sprinkles is on Bowen's Wharf, in the middle of everything. Not a long list of flavors, but some yogurts, too. Nothing special. Prices are not cheap. I do not like to promote chains, but next time I would walk 5 minutes to the Ben &...More

The ice cream itself was good- not spectacular or exceeding different, but a very welcome break on a hot day. My wife was disappointed as they had run out of waffle cones which she wanted. Some seating which was nice, especially since some of it...More
