Great variety of flavours to choose from and wonderful combinations. If you like ice cream you must not miss a trip to Dolly's. I was surprised how quickly our orders were made up as it was, not surprisingly, very busy.

Every time we vacation in Brevard, we get ice cream at Dolly's EVERY DAY! Not good for the waistline....but who can resist? You will not believe the amazing flavors...but old-fashioned chocolate with peanut butter swirled thru it is our favorite! There is always a line of people because it is known all over the area...so be prepared to line up... More

Old fashioned, walk up and eat outside ice cream joint. Lots of people milling about and talking. Ice cream is wonderful with more options than you could eat in a summer!

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.
