Casual place for some nice ice cream!

Great ice-cream! Tried and enjoyed a couple of different ice cream flavors. Just 2 suggestions to improve the experience - too many flies flying around the tables - not sure if citronella candles and cleaning the tables/floors periodically would help. Secondly, given the number of children being... read more

I thought the food was great. For hamburgers and fries and shakes I thought it was a bit pricey. Our family of 5 (3 kids 10 and under) we spent over $50. But it is tradition and we would go back again

There is nothing quite like a stop at a great ice cream shop to top off a day of beach fun. This place fits the bill! A great assortment of those things that are probably less than lo - cal but what can you do? Order something and enjoy it!!

The ice cream was great! They have both hand scooped and soft serve custard. Must check it out! It's a walk-up, so no indoor seating.

For a late night cheeseburger or ice cream cone, this is the spot. the drinks are HEAVILY iced (3/4 of my large soda was ice- see photo)the burgers take a long time to cook, but that is because they are made to order and not sitting around. Very Fresh, Nice crowd for ice cream, there is parking and outdoor seating,... More

We have walked down Every night this week to get ice cream. Go about 7 at sunset and we seem to miss the crowd. Sometimes a little wait but worth it. The banana split and Sunday's are good too. We hear the food is good too but have only tried the ice cream

We head to Fat Boyz for lunch on the first day and the last day of our visits to OBX! This is a perfect beach lunch spot. We always order the crab cake sandwiches with a limeade and onion rings...but the menu looks awesome...shakes, other sandwiches...food is always really fresh...we like to go about 2pm.
