Kilwin's has just about every confection and ice cream imaginable. In the middle of historic downtown Wilmington, NC, it is an essential visit if you are in this coastal oasis. The pralines and other confections are scrumptious but it is the ice cream that draws people in...every flavor you can think of and all wonderful.

Everyone raved about this place so we decided to check it out. They have good candy/fudge & ice cream but expensive. There were lines out the door but they seem to be the only ice cream shop in the area.

Would rather explore other ice cream places.

Whether you are traveling to Wilmington for vacation or live here year round, visiting Kilwin's is a must-do! The ice cream is the best in town, I love their salted carmel ice cream and banana fudge pie! Definitely recommend both! I love how near they are to the water front, you can grab a cone and enjoy a lazy walk along the river, people watching and enjoying sun set after dinner. Perfect!

This is such a fun place to stop in for an ice cream, and with the Cape Fear river righr down the corner, what a great spot to enjoy it. There is lots of seating down by the river, though I do miss the bench they used to have right out front. There are so many flavors to choose from. I think my personal favorite is the toasted coconut. In addition, there is freshly made fudge, several different scrumptious looking candy apples, and so much more. Serice is always friendly and efficient. Definitely a fun place to go for a treat. Kids of all ages (and kids at heart) will enjoy this spot.

The ice cream was great. Line was a little long but well worth the wait. Love eating ice cream on the water watching the sunset.
