Mediocre Ice Cream

This is convenient but I've had much better ice cream. It was pretty average and we had hoped for something more. There were a variety of toppings which were great for our 7 year old.

We've been coming to Kiawah Island for 15 years and always bike to this ice cream shop during the week we are here. This year, the employees were very unfriendly and stand-offish. They couldn't be bothered with any kind of pleasantries or even crack a smile. The ice cream is wonderful and the price isn't horrible, but the employees leave... More

When my family first went it was because another ice cream parlor was closed that we were told would be open. When we called front desk back and informed them of this they told us to go to inn-side scoop and they would wait until we got there. We arrived at 10:01 PM (they close at 10), they had already...

Cute ice cream shop with a nice variety of flavors. The ice cream is nice, but not fabulous. No seating inside, but close enough to the beach where you can get a scoop and go for a nice beach stroll.

Suggestion...walk or drive to FreshFields Village (3 miles) and go to Harris Teeter and buy a pint of ice cream. Much cheaper than the Scoop!

We stayed at Shipwatch so it was an easy couple minutes walk to Inn-Side Scoop. There were enough flavors to choose from that we had trouble deciding. The gal who scooped our cones was very kind and, unlike many of the previous reviews, I thought the size of the cone was consistent with the price. My husband felt it was... More

I understand being on a resort you will pay more than other places, but for nearly $4 a cone the amount of ice cream was embarrassing. After receiving one of the ultra skimmpy scoops, I asked the girl working there if that was normal and her response had to do with not adding more to avoid the cone from cracking.... More

Went here for an ice cream at 9:00 pm. Straw Market was practically deserted; this was the only thing open. The only employee had a "couldn't care less" attitude. We had to ask for service; she never said "what can I get you" or anything! There were less than a dozen flavors of average ice cream, none were chocolate or... More

We came here every day if our vacation. The banana bread pudding flavor is amazing! I had the mint chip!! The kids loved their choices too. Only complaint is stay away from the sprinkles. They were hard as a rock!! Otherwise go and enjoy.

Besides the general "i dont give a cr@p" attitude from the workers, this place was WAY over priced $3.50 for a single scoop of ice cream in a regular cone. That's exactly what is was. Grab a cone. Take 1 scoop of ice cream and plop it on top...Boom...$3.50 I was there with a large group ~10 people. $35 later... More
