Many treats to choose from, but how can you pass on "two scoop Tuesday"? Our kids tried some flavors outside their norm and the employees had great advice on some new flavors. The choices were abundant, the portions generous and the prices reasonable.

A must on a hot summer day. Excellent ice cream choices. My hubby loves this place because owner is a Washington Redskins fan.

5 different sizes of comes with regular or waffle. 3 sizes of cup/bowl to choose from. Price varies for each and of course whether one or two scoops. Very generous one scoop. Full from pizza next door; this is great finish to meal. Seating inside or outside.

Had a buy one get one free coupon I found in an MB coupon book. Cheapest place to get ice cream in Myrtle that I have found. The workers were very nice. They had a lot of different menu items and flavors. The banana split was excellent. I'll definitely come back again.

This ice cream shop is great! The staff was super friendly, the ice cream is delicious and the prices were fantastic! At least compares to back home. We got 3 sundaes and a 2 scoop cone for $16.00! Can't wait to come back!
