Nice people, good ice cream.

This delicious custard is more like ice cream than soft serve custard. The flavors we tried were delicious and the place is a lovely funky place to be and see. Very nice hosts as well. Eat in or out and don't miss the unusual "gift shop."

We had custard banana split and a... More

Stopped by for an afternoon snack and had great service and wonderful ice cream. Only complaint is they didn't have hand dipped vanilla or chocolate hand dipped or custard, how is that possible?? Still would return though.

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 furnished lounge/gift shop that is part of... 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...
