My husband got butter pecan and it was so creamy and full of pecan chunks that the carton I have in the freezer just pales in comparison. My pralines and cream was also good and the service was prompt and friendly.Not inexpensive but worth every penny and calorie.

This isn't a place that really wowed me. I would go back here, but only if I was to lazy to drive to a better ice cream place. They definitely need to knock the prices down a bit.

We ordered 2 ice cream cups: A kiddie size ($4.00) and a small ($5.00). Yes, the kiddie size was smaller than the "small". 2 nights later we had ice cream at "Frozen Moos" and had 2 "regular" cones - with almost 2 scoops in each for about $6.50. So, for about 2/3rds the cost we got about 3x the product.

This is just an OK place. It reminds me of an ice cream parlor/tackle shop. There aren't very many flavors to choose from. The flavor I got was just average....you could get bluebell ice cream that tastes better. I'd suggest Frozen Moo over this place if you are looking for more flavors.

Good ice cream but fairly expensive. We enjoyed the ice cream but a kids scoop and two adult bowls was $20. We weren't disappointed in taste or anything just didn't know it was so pricy. I thought the decor on the inside was neat and fun to look at with my daughter while we waited.

The aquarium and topping bar was great for the kids. But, the overpriced icecream was awful. The salted carmel icecream was like licking the ocean, and I usually like it a little on the salty side. When I said something to the employees they did nothing. The other flavors my family had were a little better, but still not very... More

Pros: The ice cream here was delicious. Many different flavors and they pack the ice cream with flavor. This means in a chocolate chip ice cream the chips are big and in my chocolate/peanut butter ice cream there were big chunks of chocolate and peanut butter. Cons: A big line as we expected, but I do not think it all... More

The place looks like a train wreck inside with all kinds of decor. My wife's 2 scoop ice cream was 6.50 and my small extra thick vanilla shake (which was not extra thick) was 7.00. There's much to be desired at this place including the service.

Have to agree - the place was a wreck when we went - not to mention the gal behind the counter was wiping her runny nose on her shirt YUCK - being we were at Hilton Head we expected a little more calibur in both quality and hospitality but this was not the case. The icecream was ok - but... More

Stopped by one evening and noticed the line out the door...stood in line for only about 15 minutes, but it was WELL worth it! Lots of different flavors of home-made ice cream. All four of us got something different and it was all unbelieveably good! Will make it a regular stop everytime we are back on the Island!
