This was some of the best ice cream and most unusual flavors we have had in a long time. The coffee flavor with chocolate chips and toffee bits was superb. My daughter had the red velvet cake and cream cheese flavor and loved it.

My family and I live near Dolly's it is awesome from the homemade icecream with so many different flavors it's hard to choose just one, the atmosphere, and the service!! We can't wait until they open up for the season every year!! We attend from late night visits of satisfying a craving to the end of a fun filled day... More

Our "Sunday Supper" consists of ice cream at Dolly's. Home made ice cream, delicious choices, and an excellent place for people watching while eating!

After hiking the trails of the Pisgah National Forest this was a great treat. Our son who lives in the area said it was a "must go" place while visiting the area. When we arrived there was a long line but it went fast and was worth the wait. They have plenty of places to sit including some rocking chairs... More

Right at the foot of the forest and river, Dolly's has the best icecream! My kids love that place! After a long day on the river, nothing better than some ice cold icecream!

Dolly serves up some of the most delicious and innovative ice cream anywhere in Western North Carolina. If you go try something different you will not be disappointed. The regular flavors are outstanding but the unique blends of the various ice creams and other confectionery additions make for a one of a kind experience. Bring your appetite the single scoop...

This is some of the best "homemade" ice cream we have had anywhere. And the atmosphere made it even more fun! Went twice during our stay in Brevard. Great original and regular flavors. Large menu to choose from. Decent size portions. Nice picnic tables and also benches for sitting out on.

The only problem was that they were out of most of their flavors that they offer, besides that the icecream was good.

Ice cream was yummy but unfortuntaley not enough to make up for the crummy service. We were originally greeted by a very friendly young guy. He took my young daughters order before my husband & I had decided on what we wanted as she knew exactly what she wanted from the moment we said, "ice cream". :) This was a... More

Basic ice cream stand. There isn't anything special here. It was ok at a good price. No complaints but not sure of the #1 spot?
