Small little ice cream shop with outdoor tables. Soft serve was good. We had fun joking with the college kids that were working there.

My husband and I live here and we occasionally enjoy an ice cream in the evening. There are times when we have driven by, holiday weekends, warm nights, and they are closed! I am not sure why an ice cream shop has such a short season in a tourist area in the south. In any case, the soft serve is great and the folks that run the window are always pleasant.

Okay, you had a nice dinner at one of Southport's great restaurants, but now you would like a little something sweet and to do a little people watching. Head for Spikes for soft or hard ice cream and to grab a little local flavor.

We frequent the Southport area and any visit requires a few trips to Spikes- he has the best soft serve ice cream I've ever had- it's rich and creamy. I love it when there's a featured flavor (last summer there was pistachio that was amazing). Our go to is the vanilla with the butter pecan swirl. The last few trips the service was inconsistent... we'd order a large cone and it would be the same size as a regular - same with the sundaes, and in several attempts the orders were coming out wrong. Hopefully it was just training some new staff. We did not have the issues when it was the owner who was working.
The hot dogs are also good and a great quick lunch when shopping around Southport.
