The family friendly atmosphere is wonderful. A fantastic compliment to their tasty dishes. Burgers and hotdogs like home (only better) and garlic large pretzels ending with sea salt Carmel custard! What a delight! A playscape for the children and happy smiling atmosphere!

DeNucci's is a few blocks from the beach on Sadler Road, one of the main roads that cross the Island. Tucked away in a shady spot with fenced kids playground upfront, cool air-conditioned seating inside with clean restroom and drive thru window.

Family owned and a few years old, DeNucci's has the best ice cream and related goodies on the island. It is easy to get to and park and their variety and quality is unmatched on the Island. They even have great coffee and hot dogs so great for a dog and a shake!

The nearest competitor is several miles away in historic Fernandina Beach. The ice cream is great there as is the chocolates, but parking is an issue, and it is nowhere near the beach. Two good options, but DeNucci's is a first rate operation. Some comments about cost. Good ice cream is not cheap and combined with a good clean operation and well trained smiling staff, you should be happy to spend the extra 50cents over the DQ. It is a very different experience for sure. Enjoy:-)

Just like title says-good but pricey. We also tried the DQ, but it was poorly run and dirty. I would definitely spend the extra money and try the local spot.

Their ice cream is the best I've ever had. I've traveled the country and this is hands down the best. We also had their burger and fries and it was great also.

We always visit DeNucci's when in Fernandina! My favorite is the Dole Whip! I can't get it anywhere else. The mango is my favorite but I also enjoy the pineapple. My husband loves their creamy custard soft serve. They offer a huge variety being that they serve dole whip, soft serve custard and scoop ice cream as well. The also sell hot dogs and they even have a playground for the kids. Try it out while in Fernandina!
