Relatively cheap and awesome, locally sourced ice cream

In addition to having many "normal", everyday flavors, this ice cream shop had other, creative flavors such as bananas foster and my personal favorite, dark and stormy. From what the woman working there told us, it is a couple that make all the ice cream, the milk/cream which is sourced from their... read more

If you like ice cream it's very good here. The servings are pretty big so go hungry so not to waste any. Next time I'll get a single serving. :-)

Hard to top ice cream in a state and a town known for it. Great location among shops and close to cruise boat pier. The line is long sometimes but moves swiftly. Follow the directions posted to help them keep a great pace. Many flavors including frozen yogurt. Lots of choices of cones and waffle bowls. Tables inside and picnic... More

Great choices of ice cream and the ones we chose were worth every bite. We had heard about this ice cream so we decided to give it a try.

Even late at night this place was busy. Quite a lot of flavors to chose from. They also give a very generous scoop of ice cream. You won't go away hungry!

Pricy, but that's expected on the harbor near the shops. Great selections. Fast service. Good location too.

Tried to find this place last night. It was the anniversary of my beloved chow Nero's birthday. He passed in 2007 but when he was alive we always went for ice cream on his birthday, so I still do every year in his memory. We went crazy wandering around town trying to find this place after reading the great reviews,... More

Great ice cream and very reasonably priced. One scoop is huge, and you can get 2 cones for around $5. Well worth the stop, and bucks, and we stopped everyday of vacation there.
