Blue Bell ice cream in a lot of flavors. Good stuff. A small place and easy to miss. This is our second visit and both times we had banana splits. You can choose your flavors and toppings. If you go on Thursday they are 1/2 price.

This place stays busy. Two scoop Tuesday and 1/2 price banana splits on Thursday. Try the Southern Blackberry Cobbler. The summer parking lot is a busy place. Lots of families and where I always take my grandkids (without their parents) for our special treat. Staff is very friendly and good with kids.

Simply the best, convenient and pleasant folks, great ice cream and variety. In and out, quality product at a reasonable price. The staff can communicate in "grown up English" and aren't stumped when you give them $5.02 for a $3.77 tab...

Make sure you get a coupon out of the free tourist brochures, to get a "buy one, get one". I thought this was going to be a cute, decorative, vintage old-fashioned ice cream parlor, as the name implies. It's just a store-front, a little run-down, normal place to get ice cream, nothing special. The guy waiting counter was really nice.... More

My wife and I stopped by for ice cream on a Thursday night and discovered the 1/2 price banana split special that evening. They had a large number of ice cream flavors and to my surprise, we were able to choose up to three different scoops for the banana split. I went for the whole experience -- nuts, whipped cream,...

We had read reviews, and passed The Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlor a few times during our vacation (usually on our way to dinner) and commented how that would be a good dessert. However, after dinner, we were too full to want dessert. We left the beach a little early for some shopping on Thursday, and we decided it would... More

Half price banana splits on Thursdays are a great deal! The kids like that they can pick out 3 dift flavored of ice cream and their toppings. And it was cheaper than just getting a single scoop! Also have special on Tuesdays where you get a free second scoop. Nice family owned business.
