Fudge with Pecans!

Hubby liked his ice cream, I LOVED my fudge. They could use a bit more staff, but the server was efficient and doing her best to keep up. It's a cute store in which to browse - with souvenirs and various candy choices. Seems to be a favorite with locals as well as tourists. It's a well known... read more

This was a very handy store. There's not much located on Harker's Island, so being able to buy things you'd find in a hardware store and groceries in one place was very convenient. The place was usually staffed with an older guy and a couple of younger guys to help you find miscellaneous hardware, and they always had a different... More

Visited the store mainly for the ice cream. It was excellent. Also liked the atmosphere of the little store. Cool souvenirs, and I have heard the fudge is wonderful.

Sell typical souvenirs, only ice cream in DT beaufort, drinks and the like. Pricey for food, limited selection, but it is typical. Nothing special.

The prices here are good and they have a very good selection of tourist oriented souvenirs. And if you're lucky, there will be room for you to sit up on the porch to eat that ice cream and watch the traffic on Front Street or the boats in Taylor's Creek.

It doesn't matter what time of day, or how hungry you think you aren't, you just can't pass the General Store and not be tempted by their bins and bins of yummy ice creams. You may also be tempted by the many flavors of fudge, oh dear! The shop has a great selection of sun hats, tee shirts, sunglasses and... More

A tad small but filled with nestalgia. Fun to browse, and yummy dip ice cream! Not far from parking and close to waterfront.

The General Store had great ice cream, you could tell by all of the people pouring out of it with cones and bowls on a Saturday afternoon. I had butter pecan :)

Great ice cream & fudge. If you are looking for gifts to take home this is the place. Old fashion candy kids would love. My family & I stop in when we go over to Beaufort.
