The ice cream is a tasty treat. Be forewarned that the line can get long and there is limited seating. Our family trips to Lewes are not complete without a trip here.

Good service, but poor selection of flavors. Head to Hopkins Farm Creamery instead. It is in a great location with okay parking and is a must to many. I prefer other places to it though.

Lines are long at times, but ice cream is so good! Lots of flavors to choose from...I had banana, chocolate, and strawberry.

The ice cream is average, service was horrible. The girl could not remember my simple order do ice cream hot fudge and whip cream. When my order finally came the fudge tasted burnt when I questioned her she said it was the fudge was at the end and no one replaced it. I returned my order.

Our first time visiting Lewes downtown and stopped here for a treat...good ice cream but Hopkins Farm was better...King's just didn't taste as homemade but glad we tried it anyway!

Amazing ice-cream! I love the coconut flavor! Great quality and nice and friendly atmosphere! I wish there were more sitting place outside to sit down and enjoy it more. :)

Hopkins farm ice cream tastes better, but King's store smells better than the farm although the milk/cream smell can overwhelm you some times.. There is a nice variety of flavors. The Lewes location is on the main drag near Agave and Half Full.
