“Good snow cones”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The snow cones are good, but the pizza is just so-so. Staff is very friendly and helpful. A good place to meet some of the locals and get some ideas on what to do and where to eat nearby.

“Excellent Pizza but read our tips...”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

There are not a lot of food choices on the island, but that doesn't mean there are not great places to eat. The pizza here is very good.

A few pointers:
There is no indoor seating. There is seating outside on the deck, but that can be brutal in the summer. It would be nice if they converted the 2 porch overhead light bulbs to fans.

This is quality pizza and takes 15-20 minutes to cook. So the reviewers that complained about the wait probably sat in the brutal heat waiting for it to cook. I would call your order in and give it a head start. You can also get it to go.

It is directly across the street from the Holiday Isle and Dauphin Island Beach Club condos. So very convenient. No more thann5 minutes from anywhere on the island.

Hope the tips help because the pizza is worth the visit and reasonably priced.

They also have ice cream, sno cones, etc., but we didn't get to try them this visit.

“Yummy snow cones close to the condo”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The family walked across the street for these snow cones (they also serve pizza). They were very refreshing. We tried to go back on a Sunday, but they close early, which is a bit inconvenient as there are not a lot of options on the island.

“Very Fun and good too”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We did have to wait a while for our pizza, but we ordered snow cones to keep the kids cool while we waited. The Rainbow snow cone is the best. We had Rainbow pizza, which has all the toppings. It was good, but hot with a lot of peppers on it. We would definitely go back there if we come back to Dauphin Island.

“Closed at 6 on a Sunday evening”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We arrived shortly after 6 p.m. on a Sunday and were told that the place was closing. The couple in line ahead of us pleaded with the restaurant to let him order, but was turned down. Dining options are really limited on Dauphin Island; the few restaurants that do exist seem to have quite a few negative reviews.
