My kids and I are obsessed with Sunset Slush,its the best! When we first started getting Sunset Slush on vacation, we would try to get it once or twice during the week. My kids literally stalk the black and yellow umbrellas on the beach aaaaaand...we end up getting it EVERY day haha! Worth it and its just a part of why we love Ocean Isle. The kids working the beach carts are fantastic! It was in the 90s every day the week we were there this year, and those kids were still pushing those heavy carts. So PLEASE remember to tip the cart pushers, they really do work hard!visit the shop if you are too far away for the carts, you will not regret it. So delicious! Might get a good cooler next year so I can transport some home haha!More

My family looks forward to going here every year on vacation! The staff is always friendly and service is quick even if there is a line. We're never disappointed, every flavor we have got we have loved. Wish there was one in Ohio! :)

On really hot days I don’t always want ice cream. Not sure how to explain it, but having a slushie to cool you off really hit the spot. They must’ve had 20 flavors. And to top it off, they have another board with recipes for...another 20 flavors. During COVID, it was window service, but worth the wait.More

If you don't catch the carts that go up and down the beach then make sure to stop in at their physical location that is part of the building that is attached to the Pier. Our kids love it and its very refreshing on a...hot summer day.More

One of the best things about sitting on the beach all morning is seeing the Sunset Sluch cart coming up the waterline. After hours of swimming in the ocean, reading a good book, and building sandcastles, the cart is a welcome sight for a cool...treat. And the Italian ices are creaming and sweet, but not too sweet. The young people who push the carts are friendly and let us taste the flavors as we could not decide what we wanted. We love it.More

I was in the mood for soft serve, it's my favorite type of ice cream, and was recommended this place. There are several as I understand, but was told to go here and not the others. Im glad I found it. The soft serve is...good - not gritty at all, which, to me, says alot of the quality. They really seem to be proud of and gently recommend the Italian Ice and Gelato, but I stuck with the soft serve. I also found the little gift shop to be quirky in a good way, I purchased a nice wall hanging done by the owners daughter, I loved it and had to have it!More
