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.

They have an awesome deal, two scoops for the price of one on tuesdays an half priced banana splits on thursdays, and yes they are huge banana splits. The owner greets everyone and has fun with his customers. A must do, if your in the area.

This place has very friendly staff, they have a delicious brownie sundae where the brownies are homemade by the owner. They sell blue bell ice cream and it tastes great! We have went here two years in a row and twice on this trip. Always a nice sweet treat to end the night. Very reasonably priced. For one adult and... More

We get down to Surfside Beach often as we have a vacation home there. This is one of our favorite places at the beach - best place for ice cream. We particularly like the banana splits and Thursdays are just a great day to go with the 2 for 1 deal. Nice owner and employees.

Very good ice cream at a reasonable price (we had coupons). We were there on a Thursday afternoon during off season and we were the only customers in the store. The owner was very generous in allowing us to sample various flavors.

Privately owned and it shows. The ice cream is really good. My family loves the place. On Tuesday and Thursday they have big time specials. It may take you a few minutes on those days in the summer but the wait is well worth it. Service is always great.

The ice cream was out of this world but way to expensive for a family on vacation. Probably would not go there again because of the pricing

I'm guessing blue belle ice cream isn't theirs or homemade but it was delicious. Family of 5 was $16. I suggest the Italian cream cake flavor, very very good!!!

Cute, clean & easy to get to... our group of 8 got exactly what they wanted and everyone said how good it was. Most places around are soft serve - and we stopped here BECAUSE it was hand dipped hard-pack ice cream (and it was Blue Bell! YUM). If you're in the area all week, call them up & see... More
