A staple of life in Mt. Pleasant, I’ve been going here for delicious ice cream since I was a young boy. I’m 23 now, I still go here. You can’t beat a traditional ice cream parlor especially on a hot summer day.

Short walk from the Cambria Hotel ... The cherry amaretto was wonderful! My husband had the black & white sundae and loved it.

This cozy restaurant/ice cream shoppe was as terrific as I remembered 8 years ago. The menu has a delicious, wide variety and getting ice cream afterwards is a must! Anytime we vacation in Mount Pleasant and/or Charleston, we always have to stop at Ye Old...More

Wonderful little ice cream shop. Convenient location in Mount Pleasant. Banana split was to die for.

The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 is because of the "traffic flow" inside the store. It is relatively chaotic if there is a crowd. The ice cream is delicious.

Food was great.... but our grandkids had meals that included ice cream...this needs a look at. Everything is served at the table except for the ice cream. It is a busy summer night and the ice cream line is LONG. My wife went in line...More

The parking lot is small, but after circling a couple of times we found a spot. This has a diner feel when you walk they the door. Seat yourself at a table or the counter & then a waiter comes to the table. Delicious burgers!!...More

Got into town. Already had eaten dinner, but had a craving for something sweet. 36 flavors and a bunch of toppings. I chose a Turtle Sundae. It was great. My wife had butter pecan with caramel. She loved it. The food looked and smelled good.
