Don't let the line fool you, you'll be through in no time. Three trips for our daughters definitely means it's a winner. Generous portions and lots to browse while you wait. Tons of unique flavors.

You have to stop by for the Hershey's ice cream. They do not skimp of the serving and ask if you want more. In a week we were there 4 times.

My son and I came mid week. Nice gift shop with some great ice cream. My son had bubble gum (yuck) that he loved. I settled for chocolate fudge peanut butter. Wow the flavor was good. Highly recommend stopping here

We have been here many times over the years and it is always very good. The service is always good and the servers always have a smile. It is always on our things to do list while on the island.
