This ice cream store is legend! All summer and into the Fall the place is surrounded by hordes of people eating their product!

If you like ice cream, you'll like King's. Everyone in town goes there so you line up and chat while waiting to get to the counter.

We had some of the cookie and the raspberry ice cream. It was good but not good enough to say we'd be back again next time in town.

Small mom and pop ice cream shop just across from St. Peter's Church. Sometimes the line gets long, but when its in the 90's, the wait is worth it.

I found that the Icecream here was ok, but not great. Server seemed disinterested (bordering on annoyed) in any of the costumers, but I doubt that's the norm. You will probably enjoy it, but it's not a big difference from storebought icecream.

I got the butter pecan cone. It was frosty and gritty, not creamy. It tasted like it has been frozen and thawed and then refrozen. I brought it to the attention of the young man behind the counter and he was argumentative and, after tasting it, said it was "normal". If this is normal, it's terrible. My husband's was creamy,...

I have been coming to Kings since I was a young child so despite being biased by nostalgia--this is great homemade ice cream. The flavors are generally no frills and not fancy combinations but there is more than enough selection. My favorite--Black Cherry--only comes as a sometimes daily special when cherries are in season.

Interesting selection of ice creams and froyo. I loved mine, and everyone else seemed to be enjoying theirs just as much. The prices were comparable to Rita's Water Ice stores. The staff were very friendly.

This is a popular ice cream shop and we found it crowded on a Saturday afternoon. The ice cream was good, but nothing special, and the serving size was not overly generous considering that the prices are a bit high.
