Visited late (approx 10 PM) one evening for ice cream for our family of four. They served me pleasantly and attentively even though I believe they were about to close. Somewhat pricey. Recommend chocolate/caramel/cashew ice cream--all ice creams are very rich and creamy. Samples and "kids' size" available upon request. Chocolates also available for purchase. Observes seasonal hours--check in advance.... More

If you are going to eat the calories then skip cheap Dairy Queen ice cream and go for the real thing at Kilwin's. I sat outside this place in 90 degree heat sipping my vanilla malt and was perfectly happy.

Great shop!! Loved the peanut butter ice cream and the coconut ice cream was to die for. The caramel apples looked great along with all of the chocolate candies and fudge. We all got our ice cream in cups to go sit outside on the benches to eat. Delicious stop.

If you love fudge this is the place to go! Kilwin's has several amazing types of fudge that they make on the premises in the window of the store so you can watch!

typical candy shop, with fudge, ice cream and other assorted chocolates. It was a short walk across the street from where we stayed.

After reading the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp, we were looking forward to enjoying some ice cream after dinner. The offerings were average at best. While not overly expensive, we would not return. The servings were nice sized. The chocolate was overly sweet. The salted caramel was meh. Would go elsewhere.
