Yummy!

My favorite shake was the JaCoCo; which has chocolate ice cream, coconut and amaretto. It was so yummy! I think we went 4 times in the 6 days that I was there. It was the perfect post Magen's Bay treat.

Yep, it's just a shake, and overpriced at that - but then again, everything on the island is overpriced. Location is great being that it is just up the hill from Magen's Bay. I actually brought my shake to the beach which was a pretty good idea, except for that the melted in about 4 minutes - that's my fault... More

After a long day on the beach at Beautiful Magens Bay, you must stop at Famous Delite (formally Udder Delite) for a shake. Waiting in line for your shake is one of the hottest spots on the island but sitting on the porch drinking your shake is one of the best! You can get shakes with or without alcohol .... More

We enjoyed the day at Magen's Bay and decided to walk for a shake after lunch. It is about a 10 minute walk up the hill from the beach. It would be better to stop there on your drive home. Delicious shakes and the coconut ice cream was the best! Enjoy a little treat after your day at the beach

Great variety of infused and virgin milkshakes. The perfect stop after a visit to Magens Bay. The older couple serving the milkshakes are the real delight. When leaving Magens, this is a must.

I'm not sure why there are any negative reviews about this place. The ladies who run it are charming locals who make a spiked milkshake for you, from scratch, and it's under $6. The ingredients are all local from a local dairy farm. I've tried almost all of them and they're all delicious, perfect combinations of ingredients. The place itself... More

If you are in the Mageans Beach area, this is fun quick stop for a milkshake. Their flavors vary but usually have the basics. They have a picnic table or get your order to go. The shake was nice and thick. The ice cream cone melted quickly so eat fast.

I got a shake and it was OK at best. A little runny for my taste. Hagen-Daz it is not. How does this become the 7th best restaurant on the island. What does that say for the food service on the island. When you rate it 5 stars it even asks if it is one of the best meals you've... More

Been to Magen's Bay multiple times since moving here and have never seen it open. A lesson in futility would be trying to figure out their hours of operation. Never open whenever we are there, so disappointing.

We just happens to be going to Magen's bay and was driving right past this place. I wouldn't go out of my way to get there but if in the vicinity it's a nice treat. Most of their ice cream have liquor in them though and I wish they didn't. Some needed the flavoured liquor though to give it a... More
