Homemade, delicious ice cream. The flavors are really creative- my son had the Superman ice cream, which is some fruity mix of blue, red, and yellow. My chocolate peanut butter couldn't get much better.

Every time single time we are in Wilmington we go to this place. The service is great, the treats are excellent. Any time we go we buy all of the Chocolate covered corn flakes. The line is long but it goes quick.

Easy to stop in while at the Riverwalk area. Hand dipped ice cream is good but very expensive. I didn't think it was worth the price.

Two scoops was all I will need for about a month or so. I got my fix (didn't even have to wait in a long line). I can't even remember the flavor but it was the best ice cream I've ever had!

Are you kidding me this place is as good as the line to get in. Ice cream that is flavorful and very tasty. Cones that are as good. Well worth the wait. I promise. Headed there now for another.

Always a great place for dessert! You can't beat Georgia Peach on a waffle cone. Their chocolate covered cherries are amazing. A major indulgence because they are a little pricey, but everyone should try them.

Good ice cream and fresh cones very highly priced. Three cones and two small boxes of sweets were 43 dollars

Last Sunday night, about 8:30, we stopped by to see what the hoopla was all about. The line, as usual, was out the door -- generally, a good sign. As we waited in line we watched the guy make the waffle cones through the big front window. He wore gloves. A few minutes later, a girl walked over to him... More

Whenever our grandsons are in town we have lunch downtown at one of our favorite restaurants and then walk the boardwalk to Market Street to Kilwin's for dessert. The selection is wonderful and one scoop is plenty to eat.
