It was clean and had a lot of options for about everything ice cream! I haven't had a banana split in forever and the lady there that Sunday made me a jr. banana split to die for! Loved the hobby horse theme! Kids of all ages would love it!

Ummm every day that I am in or near Ocean City I have to have. This place is outstanding and the service is great and quick ! The cookie monster is awesome...if Ben & Jerry get a hold of this they would want to sell it. I always get a regular scoop on a cone but I keep seeing everyone... More

When your in OC you can't miss Hobby Horse, literally. It is the cutest little shop with big flavors. It is decorated with colorful merry go round horses so you can't miss it. Unlike most shore ice-cream shops when you order two scoops you get two full scoops. The ice-cream is creamy delicious and the flavors are endless, just like... More

Not sure what "nothing special" was talking about, but I just had the birthday cake ice cream and every spoonful had at least three big chunks of cake. It was full of cake and very yummy!! Very sad that this is Labor Day weekend and we have to wait for next summer to get this wonderful ice cream again!!

Definitely the best ice cream in OC! Large selection of hard and soft-serve, sundaes and other treats. Kids love to sit on the carousel horse outside!

This was an ok ice cream parlor. I wasn't too amazed with their options. Their times are convenient though. It made an after dinner treat. It was no better than any other ice cream parlor we have been to this week. Plus the line was crazy with no organization. With that line frankly I was disappointed with their flavors.

They have a great selection of ice cream and a good selection of sundaes loaded with your choice of toppings. My wife ate the whole thing! The service was personal. You feel they are creating something special for you. The chocolate covered pretzels are awsome for dipping into your ice cream. The painted horse out front makes for some good... More

Lots of different flavors and toppings to choose from. Some soft serve available also. Mint chocolate chip was very good, and others in our party enjoyed their flavors. Dining area decorated with a few painted carousel horses, fun for kids to look at. Overall great ice cream.

I've been coming to the shore my whole life and finally discovered this great old fashioned ice cream shop. It's worth getting off the boards to enjoy the selection, quality, service and price!
