Best ice cream ever!

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... read 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.....

They had the best selection of Ice Cream I have ever seen. The size and the price was great too. I am diabetic and love Ice cream they had 4 Sugar free flavors. Are you kidding nobody has that. Great location. Worth the stop. I went twice.

Not the best but it was ok. Didn't really order anything special just plain ice cream and a float so that might have been the problem. The rockers on porch are nice

I've been going to Dolly's for most of my life because I grew up going to the summer camp in Brevard, NC! I love Ice cream, and Dolly's has the best in the world. You can't miss it if you like Ice cream even a little bit. The coolest thing they have is camp flavors! Each camp in the area... More

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
