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...

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.

Very friendly staff. They were helpful since it was a tough decision on what to try. Everything sounded so yummy. The portions were very generous and small was like a medium.

My kids love this place, we go every year! Lots of selections. They even have a mini golf course, but we have never played. It's been too hot outside.

Quirky little mini golf and icecream place on obx. We usually stop here. Unusual flavors as well as your standard ones.
