Walked over from our motel to get some ice cream. Had to wait in a short line. Service was quick. I ordered a hot fudge sunday and my husband got a large ice cream cone. We got more than we expected. Prices in line with others.

We went at a little after 9pm and it was still crowded, but the line went quickly. Both of us got salted chocolate caramel ice cream--yum! The only thing I found a little strange was the cut glass that is in the flower beds. It's gorgeous, but there is a sign asking not to touch it (it is sharp glass,... More

At peak season in the summer you should post that the grill closes at 900. That was just poor service

We went late, and there was a big crowd - but, delicious choices and a casual atmosphere, along with a good sized eating area, made the wait worth it. Banana Split and Chocolate Covered Strawberries were yuM!

My family stopped by for some ice cream and it was great. They had lots of other food on the menu too, burgers, subs, fried oysters, etc. It all looked good. All seating was outdoors so the ice cream melted quickly and it got a little crowed while we were there. But it was a cool place, fun, good food.... More

Incredibly disappointed, not sure how this could have been a worse experience. Pros: --Girl who took our order was very friendly. --Nice covered patio seating area Cons: --Long lines, 15-20 minute wait to order, 10 more minutes until served --No hand dipped chocolate ice-cream (chocolate available in soft-serve only) --Soft-serve ice cream served already melting down sides of the cone....

Just across the street from the state beach (a short walk but I discovered the hard way that in August a double scoop of ice cream on a cone does not travel well from Fat Boyz back to the beach). The ice cream is tasty, service friendly. Highly recommend.

Maybe I'm spoiled (OK, I am spoiled) and I don't like paying premium prices for soft serve ice cream. Call me crazy... I also don't like waiting in line for 15 minutes in a parking lot to pay premium prices for low quality ice cream. I know there are some die-hard fans, almost in a cult-like following and I'm probably... More

We went there for an afternoon ice cream, the caramel sundae were good. The prices quite high. There are few places to sit outside. People are smiling and smart. Chairs and tables outside looks a bit dirty. It did not impress me too much.

Extended family (11) stopped at Fat Boyz for ice cream based on other reviews. Except for the kids who just wanted something sweet, none of the adults were overly impressed with any of the selections made. Comments ranged from "that was okay" to "mine had no taste". We were impressed with the price!!! Of course, none of the ice cream... More
