I've visited Kilwin's in other locations and they are always consistently good. This one has an extra large ice cream selection and has a lot more treats than their other places. The Wilmington Mud is so good.

Ice cream is great but $14.00 for a 1 scoop cup and a 1 scoop waffle cone it should be. Prices are crazy won’t be going back anytime soon.
