Is it really a cookie?

First things first. Whatever this thing is, it's delicious. With that out of the way, let's discuss branding. Is this thing a cookie??? It's more like a cookie-pizza-thing, or a flattened muffin, or maybe a cookie-dough brownie, or possibly ... well nevermind. It's too thick for a cookie, and it... read more

This is a great dessert that won't break the bank! The cookie was moist, the ice cream delicious (Hershey's), and the topping the perfect touch to a delicious treat. The lady taking care of our order was very friendly and it was a great afternoon snack. Make sure you stop by if you're in the area!

You pick a cookie, ice cream and topping. All are very good and allows you to make you own combo. It looks like a shack, but s worth a stop.

We've been coming to Chincoteague for a few years now, and had yet to try BYOC until this last visit. You can't beat an I've cream sundae that has a huge, warm cookie as it's base! We will be back for sure!

It's a great concept and we came several times last year and enjoyed it immensely. Great service every time and the ice cream is always good. This year we just felt like the cookies were not quite on par, which of course is what makes or breaks a cookie sundae. Overall, we'll definitely come again but it just didn't leave... More

While the prices are a bit more than your average desert, the quality and quantity of the product are much more than your average desert! Your choice of a fresh large cookie, topped with your choice of one or two scoops of ice cream, one or two candy/cookie toppings, all in a takeout box with a spoon, ready for you... More

I've been coming to Chincoteague for many years and have to say that this place is definitely the place to go. The cookies are warm and soft with tasty ice cream! They're pretty big so my boyfriend and I shared :)

Decided to try here for a change. First time we went here. JUST GO. Fresh warm cookies, cold ice cream, choice of toppings, whip cream and a cherry. What more can you say? I had the coffee house cookies and cream ice cream which is the best coffee ice cream with Oreo bits mixed in over the best chocolate chip... More

All around good stuff, friendly staff as well. You get to pick from multiple cookies, then top it with a scoop of ice cream, and then you pick your toppings.
