This family owned shop is the best place to go for homemade ice cream. They have a fat free raspberry ice cream (or frozen yogurt) that is excellent! You would never know it was fat free! There is plenty of outdoor seating.

Outside and inside service. We went inside and were pleased to find seating and air conditioning as well as a cooler of ice water with cups as a courtesy to the customers. Ice Cream was delicious. Also had restrooms available. There must of been 50 different flavors of ice cream.

This was a very friendly place. You could sit outside or inside. I love the unique flavors they offer and the massive options of toppings. I had a mocha chip brownie sundae with hot fudge and peanut butter topping. Life doesn't get better than that!!!

The Salty Caramel Crunch icecream is perfection and the Coffee Oreo in a waffle cone was absolutely delicious. This is a must if visiting the area!

The homemade ice cream is good but a little overpriced. My husband and I each got 2 scoops on a waffle cone=$12.

Ice cream is pretty skimpy on chips for chocolate chip ice cream. If I want vanilla, I'll order vanilla. But if choc. Chip....I'm looking for some chips to chew.

Big Daddy has the best ice cream around! My favorite is the brownie sundae! I also love that the location is perfect. I can walk there from Drake's Island Resort.
