Loved the selection of hand-dipped and soft serve ice cream. Friendly. Clean. Good burgers and food. Made to order fresh. A welcome change from chain restaurants. Reasonable price. Convenient location.

It nice to have an ice cream shop across street from the hotel. There were some very hot days while we were at the beach and it was nice to walk across the street and have an ice cream sundae. The hamburgers were good but the chili was not that good. Tasted like can chili. Hot dogs were okay.

We were there on the first night of our stay, May 28, 2014. At 9:45pm we went in for dinner. The staff members were extremely friendly and although they were closing at 10pm they did not make us feel rushed. The burgers were good and they made sure we had drink refills.

A little pricy but no more than places like Baskin Robbins. Across the street from our hotel so that was nice.

Delicious ice cream and shakes. Lots of selections though no dairy free/fat free. Also a little disappointed there was chocolate syrup for sundaes but not hot fudge.

This is typical ice cream shop. You are paying for overpriced beach icecream but it is fun and walking distance from hotel. We really enjoyed the service here. You can get great sundaes.

Stopped by while golf carting for some refreshment. Sophia's has both hard and soft serve ice cream. I opted for the soft serve with sprinkles and a waffle cone. Very good. Great and friendly service. Will be back! PS...They serve Blue Bunny - which is pretty good! They even have sherbet!
