The Island Creamery often times have a line out the door on a hot summer night. Don't let that discourage you, it is worth the (usually short) wait. Island Creamery is much better than the competitor down the street!

A must stop for locals and visitors alike. Tasting chocolate? Get the marsh mud! Not a chocolate person? Not to fear, many many more flavors are near.

When you visit Chincoteague, you must include the Island Creamery. The ice-cream is very good and there are a lot of flavors. The waffle cones are especially good.

Island Creamery in Chincoteague was named one of the best places for ice cream in the USA. We were surprised by the astronomical line out the front of the ice cream establishment. We waited about 20 minutes before ordering. We ordered the chocolate dipped waffle bowl sundae. We chose the Iced Nirvana and the Absolutely Nuts as our ice creams... More

On a recent trip to Chincoteague over the Holiday period we were thankful for anything that was open. On a frigid day in late December, the last thing we expected to see open at 8.30PM was an ice cream parlor. But this place is something of an institution and late into the evening when there seemed to be barely anyone... More
