This little hamburger place in Surf City, NC has THE best hamburgers I have ever had. Add french fries and a chocolate shake and the juke box that plays oldies from the 50's and 60's and it's doesn't get any better than this. The place is clean and filled with antiques from the 50's and 60's. The wait staff is happy to be there and very pleasant. It's a great place for the kids because they have all flavors of ice cream and great old fashioned quarter rides outside.

I read the reviews of Island Delights and since they, for the majority, seemed very good, my husband and I gave it a try for burgers to take out. If you're in a hurry, forget it. We went at 11:05 AM (just after they opened) - SLOW!!! The burgers were very good; not so much the fries. We decided to try it again later in the week around 8:00 PM for more take out burgers. Again, the service was SLOW; burgers good. The place was packed with people getting ice cream and that line moved along very well. The staff was nice and the price is fine. Just don't be in a hurry if you want food.

Good place to stop and get ice cream after a long day at the beach. They serve hard serve ice cream. Cute atmosphere for kids, it reminded me of an old fashion ice cream parlor.

Make a point of stopping in to check this place out! The staff are friendly, the service is excellent and the food and ice cream is wonderful. Lots of interesting memorabilia to check out while you wait for your order. We recommend the Carolina barbecue (with slaw) sandwich. I wish I had another right now! We will definitely be back when we return to lovely Topsail Island.

A fun atmosphere and great ice cream. What else could you ask for at the beach? You must stop in for the homemade waffle cone.
