We stopped here on the way back from Avon, and we are glad we did. This is a throw back type of place with great ice cream and custard. The portions are large, even the kids size.

The man behind the counter was unable to smile, greet customers, or act like a business owner happy to be busy during a short, seasonal business. The party before us ordered 4 ice cream cones, he made 3, the woman asked for the last cone and hd replied, "I didn't get that one." He made her GET BACK IN LINE while her family ate theirs. I've never seen anything like it. Unbelievable. As for the custard, very average. I had choc. Peanut butter mousse, it was not dense and creamy as custard should be but riddled with ice chunks. We also tried the soft serve vanilla, always my favorite. .. it was ok. Better than a McDonald's cone but NOTHING like Kill Devil hills custard or Rita's or the famous Kohrs brothers custard I've tried at other vacation destinations. The environment was unwelcoming, don't waste your time or money. Many other business owners would be more than happy to treat customers with a smile rather than this grumpy old toad!

The ice cream and custard offerings were very good. Don't even both with the golf portion. Not worth the time or money.

Very friendly staff. They were helpful since it was a tough decision on what to try. Everything sounded so yummy. The portions were very generous and small was like a medium.

My kids love this place, we go every year! Lots of selections. They even have a mini golf course, but we have never played. It's been too hot outside.
