“Not worth the price”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We went through the drive-thru and order the soft serve with candy. I had the Heath bar and the wife had the peanut butter cup. We got the med and it was over $8. It was just okay.

“Creamy, crunchy and good!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Went through the drive-thru and received fast service. I could understand the employee over the intercom, thankfully. I ordered the double scoop, waffle cone with a scoop of Butter Pecan and a scoop of Toffee Crunch. The ice cream was creamy, there were plenty nuts, toffee and chocolate and the cone was fresh and crisp. So, every bite was a pleasure. Their selection is pretty straight forward, unlike Cold Stone which is so confusing with all their mixes and toppings; so you can go through the drive thru without too much trouble. But, if you like weird combos, you may want to park and order at the window so you can take time to look at the menu. Really yummy and I'll definitely be back!

“old fashioned Ice cream at It's Best”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

In the fall they have a warm apple dumpling with ice cream. Warm gooey goodness. Do you need more?
Try the Turtle ice cream sundae. Loaded with toasted whole pecans..............

“Real Ice Cream”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Best ice cream in Wilmington. Creamy and rich and yummy. And you should try their pies and cakes. So many different flavors to choose from. Seasonal flavors are wonderful too.

“Good quality ice cream”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Best ice cream in Wilmington. Not the soft-serve or "mix flavor into base" kind of ice cream. Hand-packed and creamy, but with a nice 'body'. Lots of choices. Prices not bad. Nowhere to sit inside, so be prepared to sit outside in the heat, or eat in your car. Convenient drive-through as well.
