A must stop for ice cream

How many times do you get to have ice cream at the #1 rated in the country?! Lots of flavors to choose from. We went there shortly after they opened for the day and avoided long lines.

So many flavors to choose from. Wanted to try them all. Pony Tracks in a waffle bowl was so good. Also wanted to try some fudge. Looked amazingly good.

You have to try this ice cream!!!! There is a line almost every night during peak season because everyone (tourists and locals alike) love this place. I've been going here almost every summer for fifteen years, and it never gets old. My favorite flavors are their black raspberry and their pony tracks (peanut butter cups with fudge and peanut butter... More

Yup, as others posted, long lines out the door in hot summer weather. That took the magic out of the experience for us. Once inside, the service was quick and portions are large and priced for great value. The fresh made waffle cones are awesome, don't miss those. There is a huge range of ice cream flavors, but the ones... More

As soon as you walk into the Island Creamery you are overwhelmed with the aroma of fresh waffle cones and fudge. Yum! My husband and I each ordered one scoop in a waffle cone- it was huge! The cones came with spoons. Neither of us could finish. I think my flavor was called Pony tracks or something like that and... More

Great home made ice cream. We knew it was the place to try given the long lines waiting for a dip. There are lots of flavor options - you're sure to find something you like. My only complaint is that the flavors have local names and there are no descriptions on the board; there's a paper sheet that describes each... More
