My family and I have been coming to Topsail Island off and on now for 10 years. Not until this trip did we finally dine at Island Delights. Based on how busy it always seems to be, we decided to eat around 3 in the afternoon. Good choice. We got seated immediately. We had various items including their signature Island Delights burger and coney dogs. The food was delicious. If there was any negative about the meals it was that the fries were just blah. Run of the mill.
The interior was fun and it did have a Happy Days throw back feel to it. I didn't care for the fact though that the ice cream/shake choices were on the other side of the restaurant from where we sat and they didn't have an updated list at the table or on the menu. I asked what the shake flavors were and the waitress replied that there were a ton of them. I then said do I need to walk over to the other side of the restaurant to review them? She replied yes that they change all of the time and that she couldn't possibly memorize and recite them. They need to figure out a better system when you're ordering than asking a customer to walk over and pick a shake flavor.
All and all it was a fun experience and I would go back. In fact a few days after our initial visit I did take my two oldest boys back for banana splits which they seemed to really enjoy.
