“Must Stop Destination!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

I'm not a big ice cream eater but I just had to give this place a try. They have a great assortment of flavors but I stuck with Mint Chip - it was great and so was the waffle cone. I went in the afternoon and was able to walk right in - I didn't even have the waiting time to decide what to get. The next night I want in the early evening. Even though the line was out the door it moved quickly. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. This is definitely a must do one your Chincoteague list.

“Great ice cream and wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

We had read so much about the place and never having been we went about 8:00 on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised that even with a line out the door the wait was not more than about 5 minutes. They really know how to keep the line moving without you feeling like part of a cattle herd. Ice cream was great (a single was huge), next time I will get a cup of ice cream and a bag of waffle cone pieces to share. You will not be disapppointed, enjoy.

“Homemade ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

The line was out the door, down to the sidewalk and 20 feet across the parking lot! By the time we were at the door, it stretched all the way across the parking lot! Great service, great staff, worth the wait!

“Great ice cream!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

This place has great ice cream, and very well may be worth the wait. We decided to go in the afternoon, to skip waiting in line. It seemed that every night we were on the island, the line was out the door and down the street! They offer tons of different flavors, done up however you want them.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

The line looks longer than it is, they manage to move people through here quickly so don't let a line down the street deter you. The portions are huge! I say that and yet the flavors that I had were so delicious that I managed to finish my cone or cup each time without trouble ;)
