I Scream for this Ice Cream!!

This is the best ice cream ever. My favorite is chocolate peanut butter brownie but I haven't tried a flavor that I liked. Let me say that the portions are very generous. A single scoop waffle cone is huge. They gladly let you sample the flavors. Warning: this is a walk-up establishment. There... read more

Visited this place while visiting Virginia Beach. It was very yummy & I had a hard time choosing what to get as there were lots of choices. I got the strawberry shortcake, my boys got the fish bait hurricanes, & my husband got the vanilla w/ Oreo. We all really enjoyed it & recommend it if you are around the... More

They have awesome ice cream of all kinds. It's a real treat to come here. So many flavors and ice cream treats that it is hard to choose. In Red Mill Commons shopping center, close to Sandbridge.

Try the frozen peach yogurt - it's the best! Also ample parking and seating area to the outside of the establishment.

I asked for the smallest cone and one scoop of the vanilla frozen yogurt. The cone was really tasty as was the BIG dollop of yogurt. My friend had the strawberry cheese cake ice cream...yummy. Extensive choice on offer at this popular establishment.

Let me say first the ice cream product itself was very good, the portions are on the small side and the advertised price is on the higher side but its the beach area and that's fine BUT what is not fine is the way they charge you without putting any kind of posted notice up or the staff telling you...

My parents grew up on this place in Ohio and this one is every bit as good! Always a long line, but well worth the wait! Heck, if there wasn't a line, I wouldn't go there! Wide variety and friendly staff! A must go for desert!

They say all the icecream is homemade. I bought a chocolate covered banana. They are hard to find. The rest of my family got the icecream. They said it was good. The portions are a little on the small size for what you pay. It is a little pricey.

The ice cream was fantastic. So many choices it was hard to decide. You had a choice of several types of cones.
