Great place to take the kids - especially if weather keeps you off the beach

Took the kids there - lots of video games, foosball, etc. ice cream is great, lots of flavors. Great activity for kids when it's raining.

They only take cash - nothing to cry about. Ice cream was good. Gal that makes milk shakes needs to stop scraping the inside of the metal cup.

This was a delightful little shop with homemade ice cream in all the flavors you can imagine. Has a game room as well as customer seating. We tried the mint chocolate chip, pralines, and birthday cake ice cream; they were delicious! Highly recommend you visit.

This is a great spot to cool off from the heat. They have a large selection of flavors and different kinds of cones to choose from. Their serving sizes are also very generous. The decor is fun including a cow statue and a cow couch which make for fun selfies. There is also a fair amount of video and arcade... More

The ice cream was delicious, but the atmosphere was dirty and crowded. It was the only choice for hand dipped ice cream. The variety and quality of the choices were great. But the tables were packed together so tightly you couldn't walk between them and looked like they only get wiped down at closing. The line moved fast and the... More

This location is just across the street from the hotel we stayed in (Emerald Shores Hotel). It was without a doubt the busiest location we saw in Daytona Beach Shores. I highly recommend going with the two scoop cone or cup, that way you can try two of their fantastic flavored ice creams. They have many, many flavors to try.... More

Cow Licks is a stop for us every time we vacation in Daytona Beach. We always look forward to stopping at Cow Licks on the last night of our vacation. The ice cream is very good. The only draw back is that it can be very crowded, but it is worth the wait

This is the perfect destination to get a beachside dessert for the entire family. They offer a great selection of homemade ice cream. Such a creamy taste doesn't come from some large delivery company. You can actually taste the difference. They have been around for many years and when you have theirs, you'll know the secret why!

Came here three nights on vacation. Great homemade ice cream every day - and tons of choices. The whole family loved it. We would go multiple times a month if we lived here.

The ice cream is homemade and you can definitely taste the difference! Aside from the yumminess, the portions are huge. One scoop is the equivalent of three.
