I wish they were open for lunch and they had more that 1 line but the warm cookie with cold ice cream does hit the spot. I'd do it again.

For 4 days during our visit (8/2014) the kids begged to go to BYOC, so our last night there we stopped in and let them become cookie constructors! They absolutely adored the process and the cookie/ice cream :) We will definitely take them again!

This is my favorite place on the island to get ice cream. They have sugar free options and also a variety of other flavors. The warm cookies are fantastic. It's also not too expensive.

We have been to Chincoteague many times, and have somehow overlooked this little gem. Our kids noticed it and begged to go. Boy am I glad we did! We were expecting a hard, dry store-bought type cookie topped with ice cream and candy....something the kids would like, but not necessarily the adults. What you get is a thick, warm, homemade...

Do yourself a favor and stop by here and get a LOADED cookie! We just keep it simple and order 1 layer and they are still huge and yummy! This is not to be missed when in Chincoteague. Also check out their cool 50 gallon drum chairs! All in walking distance to mini golf, the tackle store, fresh seafood stand... More

We stop after a day at the beach. There was something for everyone our groups age was from 1 to 46. The cookie was hot and tasty, perfect combination. The prices were very reasonable. The husband and wife team were so sweet. Can't wait to return!

I was excited to try this cookie after all the positive reviews. I didn't have the same experience. I watched the employee warm the cookie in the microwave. The ice cream wasn't very creamy and the fudge tasted like it was the cheap very thin. I thought the cookie was a little overpriced for someone warming it up in the... More

In response to your review, we are sorry your experience wasn't positive! We make our homemade cookies from scratch daily. There is no way to keep them warm without them drying out through the course of the day so we do re-heat using the microwave. We've only had wonderful reviews of our Hershey Ice Cream and the hot fudge we... More

My husband and kids loved this place. We went after dinner one night and there was no line at all! I recommend a sugar cookie with cotton candy ice cream and sprinkles. Ymmm!
