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.

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.
