My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. We ended up splitting a sandwich and indulged in an ice cream afterwards. I highly recommend the Hunting Island Sea Turtle sundae. I also enjoyed the fountain drink. The ladies working the counter were very friendly and make a fantastic cherry coke!

It is an ice cream parlor with an old fashioned style. The reason it gets a five star rating from me is the girl behind the counter. Friendly and accomodating. A refreshing change from the 'hurry up and order' style in so many places

It was so good we went twice! My husband is a butter pecan man and it was perfectly salty and sweet with huge pecans! The first time I had the sea turtle sundae and it was outstanding with homemade whip cream. The second time had mint chocolate chip which was good but the praline and cream was outstanding!

We took a day trip to Beaufort and stopped at Southern Sweets for some ice cream during a day of shopping on Bay Street. Our kids had single scoops, and my wife an I shared a brownie sundae. The kids gave the ice cream a thumbs up, and our sundae hit the spot. We liked the atmosphere with its traditional... More

This place was such a treat!! Reminds us of an old time soda shop and the Ice Cream was great. They have so many flavors to choose from and all kinds of inventive sundaes. Kid tested and mother approved! Loved this little place and will definitely go back.

My wife and I stopped for lunch at Southern Sweets. The sandwiches were great and the ice cream was delicious. The staff was was very friendly. One of them even took the time to write down the recipe for their "Beaufort Caviar." We will definitely go back if we are in the area.

Some of my best memories are going to work at southern sweets with my mom. I would always get a strawberry ice cream cone, sit in the corner and color. Mod every year for my birthday, we go and i get the same thing.

I have a habit of eating ice cream for lunch instead of a sandwich while traveling. This ice cream was outstanding. Even though it was a bit of money it was good and a generous portion was given. All a glass of water was given too.

Counter service, with old fashioned charm. Doesn't anyone make ice cream sodas anymore? There are several flavors of what appear to be home made pralines. Ice cream cone was good. It is a handy place from the harbor front where the carriage rides and boat tours begin.
