It doesn't matter what time of day, or how hungry you think you aren't, you just can't pass the General Store and not be tempted by their bins and bins of yummy ice creams. You may also be tempted by the many flavors of fudge, oh dear! The shop has a great selection of sun hats, tee shirts, sunglasses and beach towels -- everything you need for the beach or a boat trip. There are also rows of kids' books, seashell jewelry and ornaments and more -- everything you didn't know you needed til you saw them. Souvenirs and stocking stuffers galore. And a bench outside on the porch overlooking Front Street and the harbor, to sit and try to catch the drips of your ice cream cone. Enjoy it!

A tad small but filled with nestalgia. Fun to browse, and yummy dip ice cream! Not far from parking and close to waterfront.

The General Store had great ice cream, you could tell by all of the people pouring out of it with cones and bowls on a Saturday afternoon. I had butter pecan :)

Great ice cream & fudge. If you are looking for gifts to take home this is the place. Old fashion candy kids would love. My family & I stop in when we go over to Beaufort.

I have been coming here for 32 years since I was born. This place is always a family staple and love the ice cream. I always get the black cherry and many packs of the Jelly belly jelly beans. Must stop for kids and families for ice cream.
