I got a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream, nuts and a cherry. Yum! My friend got a peanut butter flurry, also yummy. Only soft serve available. Would love to see some non-dairy options made with almond milk or cashew milk. Very reasonable prices, a...block from the beach.More

Nice treat on a hot summer day. The service was pleasant and prompt. I had the strawberry milkshake. They had a decent selection of banana splits, soft serve, milkshakes and malts. (CASH ONLY)

The Oreo flurry that I ordered was relatively cheap and I was surprised with the portion size. The Oreo's tasted like the ones out of the packaging and carried the whole flurry on its little Oreo back. I wasn't a big fan of the icecream...after it melted as it tasted too creamy. The staff was also nice, especially Sidney!! WARNING: they only accept cash and PSA: TIP YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE WORKERS ((-:More

If you like soft serve then this is the place for you. Grab one and take a short walk (about a block) to the beach and enjoy the view!

This is good soft serve ice cream in a cute atmosphere near the beach. For what it is trying to be, I don't think it really could be better. I like that they have a kiddie size serving.

Great Ice Cream and service. A fun family hang-out. Plenty of parking and clean picnic tables to set-down and enjoy ice cream sodas or banana splits, etc.

Nancy's is a one of a kind neighborhood gem. They offer generous portions of soft serve ice cream with a smile and professionalism that you don't see very often any more. Wonderful place for all ages to sit at the picnic tables out front and...enjoy a cup or cone.More

Delicious little ice cream place just down the road from our hotel. Obviously a local hangout. Heath Flurry was lovely!

This is a neat little place for a cold treat on a hot day. It's decent soft serve ice cream and they have plenty of ways to change it up- sauces, fruits etc. I think they are a little overpriced for the quality and size...of servings, but again, location, location, location. Would I go again....probably.More
