I have to begin by saying I'm a local, have been for many years and have visited the Ice Cream Parlor many times in all those years. Not once did I ever have a complaint until I brought my daughter and 2yr old grandson in for lunch. Of course we had to end the visit with ice cream! I ordered... More

Great, local ice cream parlor. Ice cream after evening movie, or afternoon walk. Children visit after school. Owner and staff on site and greet regulars. Great, limited lunch menu. Small town friendly!

I'm a sucker for ice cream parlors! :) I love their hotdogs. I get the veggie hot dogs with bacon and cheese(Makes sense, right?) :p Great place to grab a quick lunch or to meet up with your sweetie for a date. Their "homemade" ice cream is pretty bad though. Absolutely no flavor whatsoever.

I am doing a book fair in Southern Pines, and decided to stop by the Ice Cream Parlor for lunch. I ordered a catfish sandwich and the lobster bisque. Both were decent but nothing to rave about. The cashier told me I could only order the specials but I noticed other patrons eating pita sandwiches. I guess you have to... More

The Ice Cream Parlor serves ice cream (of course!), soups, and sandwiches...it's a great place to drop into whether you are craving something to go or want to sit down and eat (it's small, though). Their soups and sandwiches are great, but their specialty is the Hershey Ice Cream and several other flavors.

This is a wonderful spot for your family. We visit the ICP every time we are in Southern Pines. The menu is so accommodating to all. My picky eater can have his chicken tenders and fries in a portion sized just right so he can finish for ice cream. My adventurous eater loves to mix it up, between the chicken... More

My wife and I love ice cream and the Southern Pines Ice Cream Parlor has a good selection of Hershey Ice Cream and their own homemade flavors. They also have a good menu of food which we like to get when we just want a quick, relaxed meal. They just went through a big renovation with a whole new beautiful... More

I consider this place one of the hallmarks of So Pines. It is a small town ice cream parlor. What more do you want?

Who doesn't live the idea of an old fashioned small town ice cream shoppe. This place falls short of what it could achieve. Bad service, rude, no eye contact. Just mediocre frozen friend type food mostly. Went in to try to order special, hummus wrap only healthy thing, it was on their board but they were out. I go to... More

There is no excuse for sub-par service. I wish that you had contacted me. I can not be there all the time and I appreciate when people contact us in person to alert us to a problem. The veggie wrap that was a special is now on the menu along with many other healthy items(veggie burger, salads, wraps, and sandwiches).... More
