Everytime we go anywhere near Brevard we have to make a trip to Dolly's. Love the old time feel of a roadside icream place.

Finally got the chance to try out Dolly's Ice Cream at the entrance to Pisgah Forest NC. We were pleasantly surprised at just how good this place is and even though they were quite busy, how quickly we were served.

Opting for a small soft serve cone (good thing we did), the serving was HUGE! Can't imagine how big a large would be.

All in all, super service, large portions and tasty goodness. They have picnic tables, rocking chairs and benches to sit in the shade and enjoy your frozen goodies.

If you stop by during the summer expect to see a line and at least one summer camp bus in the lot. So what, get in line and enjoy the experience. Too many ice cream choices to describe. Great atmospere, it in the area its a must.

We summer in Brevard and once a week (at least) come to this wonderful Ice Cream Bar. If you can't find a flavor of ice cream you like or want, then obviously you don't need it. There are so many flavors and they are ALL delicious. Don't be dissuaded by the line waiting. They are organized and efficient and your reward is just a few minutes away!! And if you wish a little memento of this wonderful small town, then just pop into the gift shop.

We first visited Dolly's Dairy Bar nearly 10 years ago and were blown away by the extensive and delicious choices. We traveled near again and wanted to revisit our fond memories. We were not disappointed, in fact, the bar of expectation was raised. This area near Brevard, North Carolina is home to numerous summer camps and Dolly's has managed to create a unique flavor and named the flavor for every camp that operates nearby. The staff is always friendly and there are usually lots of visitors willing to chat. Dolly's Dairy Bar is a treat not to be missed!
