If you love homemade ice cream. You must check this place out. If I'm in OC or DE, I always make stopping here part of my trip. Just love it. And has some of the best ice cream I've ever had.

This place, whether in Lewes or Milton, has been a summer tradition for any and every one for years. The selection is plentiful and the line always moves fast!!!!!

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.
