Ice cream, custard, shakes.

Been going here for years and years. There are always lots of flavors, and while you eat your treats you can look at all of the interesting objects in the mini-golf course, or play golf. We have never felt cheated by small sizes, or high prices. Choose a shell-covered box from the comfortably... read more

Park out front and take a stroll past live oaks and a meticulously-manicured, beautifully landscaped putt-putt golf course before or after you grab ice cream! Uncle Eddy's is a small ice cream shop, decorated with an eclectic flair and fun gift store. They offer many flavors of ice cream cones and gooey-yummy sundaes. The kids will love Uncle Eddy's...and so... More

Ice cream was very good. Price was right, and very good service. They allow you to sample before you choose.

I honestly can't see how people on here have written the portion sizes were excellent. Perhaps these reviews are "manufactured" by friends of the owner or someone got special treatment. I ordered a small vanilla cone. Yes, the custard was delicious. HOWEVER, it was the size for a child. I couldn't believe it. No wonder when I asked if they... More

THE BEST frozen custard! We went every day during our stay at the OBX. Tried the vanilla the first day .... very creamy and great vanilla flavor. The chocolate the next day ..... again very rich and delicious chocolate flavor. Wait till you see all the home-made flavors of hand-made, hand-scooped ice cream - sampling those started on my 3rd...

Many flavors; rich, creamy, and the best soft ice cream/frozen custard I can remember having. Only drawback: lots of other people think so too - lines are long and parking can be difficult. I just deal with it; the ice cream is worth it. (I try to limit myself to one visit per trip to Cape Hatteras, lest my stomach... More

We stopped here on the way back from Avon, and we are glad we did. This is a throw back type of place with great ice cream and custard. The portions are large, even the kids size.

The man behind the counter was unable to smile, greet customers, or act like a business owner happy to be busy during a short, seasonal business. The party before us ordered 4 ice cream cones, he made 3, the woman asked for the last cone and hd replied, "I didn't get that one." He made her GET BACK IN LINE... More

The ice cream and custard offerings were very good. Don't even both with the golf portion. Not worth the time or money.
