“Good Ice Cream- Service Experience Lacks”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our latest OBX rental was dirctly across from Fat Boyz- so of course we walked over to check it out. It was mid afternoon and not very crowded- yet- it gets crazy busy and loud later in the evening. We enjoyed the ice cream we got but were a little shocked at the service. Our 6 year old was overwhelmed by the selection and excited about getting ice cream and the staff could not have been more annoyed with her delay in selection. The rest of our party kept the orders coming but they were still short with the kids and my wife. We were interested in possibly getting an ice cream cake for an occasion we were having at the beach and when my wife went back up to inquire two staff members completely blew her off until one turned and said that they were extremely busy and then turned away. There were only 10 people in the joint and we were 5 of them. The customer they were so busy with was another family with a child who was also awing over the selection.
There are too many ice cream places with awesome customer service to bother with this one. It is also quite the teen-ager hang out at night which changes the environment and the language quite a bit.

“FatBoyz is Awesome”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Get the crabcake sandwich - its the best in the outer banks...no filler just crab meat! We go there every year. Ice cream is very good too! but don't discount this place as just an ice cream place.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Everyone was in the mood for ice cream...it was a little late. Fat Boyz was close, so we made a run. The line was long and the wait (after ordering) was about 10 min. However, it was really good and satisfied the craving of our 3 girls....ok, and us :). Definitely worth the wait.

“Good ice cream”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Decent ice cream, smoothies, etc. Can be a bit of a wait. As long as you're nearby and it's hot, stop on by.
