Great ice cream!

This shop has the most wonderful selection of hand-dipped ice cream imaginable. I'm partial to their strawberry and wild cherry favors. My husband can't decide on his favorite because they are all so tasty. And portions are HUGE. So forget calorie-counting and treat yourself!

Banana Split Republic is a no frills ice cream shop, but what it may lack in ambience it makes up in quality ice cream! I was so glad I researched a fee different ice cream spots in New Smyrna because many seemed to be serving Hershey's ice cream. It may be good but I'd rather spend the money and the... More

Great home made ice cream, they even offer two or three sugar free flavors. The staff is friendly and offer free samples to help you make up your mind.

We tried almost every ice cream shop in NSB, but this one was THE BEST! We came here at about 6:00 PM, drove home, then decided to go back at 6:45 for a second helping. Donna, the server, was friendly, energetic, and enthusiastic. Best ice cream in NSB!

Although there is a Deli there, we go for the ice cream. It's home made and absolutely delicious! The amount they give you for the price is great. They have a fantastic variety of flavors and, if you buy ice cream that is of a fruit type - peach, strawberry, cherry, etc., you get chunks of that fruit in it.... More

Home made ice cream at its best. So many flavors to pick from. Try the waffle cones. You won't be disappointed!

Went here with our grandkids after a warm enjoyable day on the beach. The ice cream was very good and the price was fine but the servers were gruff, impatient and rude. A 10 year old child will take time to make a choice from all that is available no matter how impatient you are with them and if they... More

These people are awful. When just moving here my wife got a job there. It was the most awful place in the world. She realize the unsanitry'ness, etc. She now works for a fortune 500 company. That was just a quick fill in .I would never go there if my life absolutely depended on it. She spent almost the entire... More
