“Heat relief - so so ice cream”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Cute little place to get a cone when it is hot. Juke boxes and 50-60's themed decor. Mixed reviews on the ice cream. Some of our group were happy but others complained of chalkiness or ice crystals in their dessert. The clerk was rude to one of of our older relatives when there was a bit of confusion about how many of the cones he was paying for which ruined the vacation mood for him and his wife.

“Great Ice cream”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stopped at Island Delights twice on our trip to Topsail Island and as in the past, they never fail to provide us with a great ice cream dessert! The young ladies waiting on customers are very polite and they give you a nice serving of ice cream for the money. I'll always come back!

“Good lil'spot!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

This was our second year vacationing on North Topsail Island and can't believe that we didn't find this little gem sooner! Great lil' spot to grab burgers, hot dogs, fries, etc. We were a large group of 10 that came in and our server handled it all with ease and grace. This is a cute, 50's themed diner that is very kid friendly and relaxed. The food is very good with great cheeseburgers, fries, and ice-cream. If you want a good, not fussy, reasonably priced, comfortable experience than this is your spot! Will definitely be back the next time we vacation in Topsail!

“Cute little diner with very friendly staff & great food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

I visited Island Delights during my vacation in July after reading the tripadvisor reviews & it definitely met our high expectations. it is a cute little 50s themed diner with an ice cream bar and the best cheeseburgers. After visiting, i understand why the place is always packed. it was great. we had lunch there after going to the beach & then returned after dinner for ice cream. The food & ice cream were great & the girls working were very nice. we look forward to going back next time we're in surf city!

“Highlight of my vacations to Topsail”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

My family and I have vacationed at Topsail for the past 5 years. Every year my children insist we eat at Island Delights(and me too). We usually eat there more than once. The service is always great and the food is awesome. Can't wait to visit this year!
