We went there for an ice cream and I had a chocolate covered cherry cone. Delicious. They do offer food which we did not try but told by local residents that what they offer was very good.

I got the tropical Storm which was so good. The other family members loved their's too. We got large pizzas and went to the park at the dam so the kids could play. The large pizza was the size of small at other pizza joints.

We frequently go to Summersville Lake to climb and always end a day there in the summer time with a dip in the Lake. Fat Eddies is located near the dam. It is definitely worth a stop when in the area.

Best all around tasty ice cream. Milkshakes, hot dogs, hamburgers too. Stop by and grab a cone and head for the Dam to watch a spectacular sunset.

We were expecting more of a hard-packed ice cream experience, but Fat Eddie's does a great job with soft serve and many options. There was also lots of traditional snack bar food available.

The camp ground host suggested that we eat a light dinner and plan a trip to Fat Eddie's, about two miles down the road to try the Storm. Boy, was that a treat! The Storm was a delicious ice cream treat, and the Reese's Cup...More
