Great experience. Lots of flavors of Italian Ice including soft serve. You can visit them on the mainland, at the OIB pier or they run carts on the sand. Grandchildren and grandparents all love it.

Nice crisp refreshing flavorful ices. A bit pricey however I understand it is the going price for a vacation town.

Good morning gayle r, Thank you for taking time to review sunset slush. We are delighted that your kids enjoy our ice. As I read your review , I am trying to figure if we or your kids oversold sunset slush. For the past six years we have remained the number one rated restaurant out of 34 in ocean isle beach. Gayle R, if you do not mind, can you explain "oversold". Any critique you provide is appreciated and taken seriously. We look forward to serving you in the future. Have a safe and wonderful summer. Sincerely, Stephen & Catherine, founders 2003

We officially open the 19th, however we will be at the main shoppe until 3:00 today, Tuesday . If you would like to come by, we will be glad to serve you. Sincerely, Stephen
Good afternoon Verolinswe, There was obviously a misunderstanding of what you believed you were getting. We sell Classic Italian Ice, which contains no dairy or cream. We do offer a Gelati, which is ice cream mixed with our Italian Ice. Our signage does not have the word Gelato nor do we pretend to offer Gelato. As you know, Gelato is an Italian delicacy, containing heavy cream and dairy. I would appreciate you taking time to retract your comment. Thank you, Stephen
