A Must

Delicious, unusual, homemade ice cream. Huge portion on a cone. Enjoy eating inside this quaint shop or sit out on one of the street side benches. Enjoy!

Kings is by far the best in ice cream and has been for many years now! A must visit and I'm not a huge ice cream fan but whenever in downtown Lewes a butter brickle cone is in order! Amazing place with many delicious ice cream flavors to savor

It is by far the most popular ice cream place in Lewes. Delicious homemade ice cream. After dinner everyone flocks there for ice cream. There is always a long line, but the efficient management gets you through as quickly as possible. Eat at a table or one of the many benches along Second Street.

It was a chilly day but you can never go wrong with ice cream. This shop is located in downtown Lewes right across from the cool cemetary. They serve real ice cream that is hand made and local. It is the real.deal...well worth the calories. Ice cream is actually an event. King's is not open year round...they close for winter... More

When the tourist season is not in full thrust - take time to sample and enjoy a Lewes tradition at King's Homemade Ice Cream shop. Made from milk procured from local dairies - supporting the local farmers - the end product is creamy and not sugary - a good thing. We samples a handful of different ice creams before settling...

Been handed down for at least three generations. All ice cream is homemade with many choices. Can not go wrong here.

This is the best use cream around and it's homemade! In downtown Lewes in a quaint little shop. In walking distance of other shops so you can work it off if you're feeling guilty.

Kings Ice Cream is in a cute little town called Lewes, Delaware. They make homemade ice cream that is wonderful! They have numerous flavors and give great portions. The kids that work there are very helpful and friendly. It was a jail a long time ago and there are claims that it was haunted as well.
