Amazing ice cream and service!

Dolly's is without question the best-run dairy bar establishment I've ever enjoyed, and their ice cream is excellent. I could not believe how efficiently they worked through a very long line of campers and little league baseball players. By the time we had placed our order and paid at the first... read more

Cute little place with great ice cream and choices. Several places to sit, all outside though. It was a perfect day when we went to enjoy both nature and ice cream

A friend recommended this place to me, and I'm really glad. I had one of the shakes, which was actually Sierra Mist mixed with sorbet - it was amazing! The guy serving even gave me the rest of the can to drink :) Big range of ice-creams to choose from too!

Nice little place to get a refreshing treat. Quaint little shop. Good Ice Cream. Good location. Only complaint was Cookie dough ice cream had one very small piece of cookie dough in it, that was it. Two scoops of ice cream and one tiny pebble size cookie dough piece. My friend's cookie dough had no cookie dough pieces. So that... More

Dolly's is on 276 as you leave the Pisgah Forest. It is a great place to stop and sit on the porch full of comfortable rockers and have a scoop(s) of ice cream. Lots of flavors to choose from! Dogs can join you on the porch.

Found this little gem on our recent vacation to Brevard and I am so glad that we did. What a choice of ice cream flavors, cones, and toppings. The first time we stopped I decided on a scoop of peppermint and a scoop of black raspberry, both were yummy. The next time, after a day of trout fishing, I decided... More

The ice cream and waffle cones were good, but a little pricey. They have several flavors of ice cream.

Nice treat after visiting Sliding Glass Falls and Looking Glass Falls. Ice cream was yummy. They had both soft serve and regular scoop ice cream. Nice porch with sturdy rockers to enjoy.

A great place to sit and enjoy ice cream. Plenty of selections to please everyone in our group. After a day hiking, looking at waterfalls or just enjoying the outdoors, this is a nice place to end your day. Eat ice cream, relax and sleep well.....
