This shop has all the tourist items and are a knotch above the normal tourist trap stores. They serve homemade ice cream and fudge. Very nice and friendly staff.

Large selection of all things you forgot for your trip plus all the things you need. We bought clothing and some amazing ice cream.

Glad we stopped here! We went in for ice cream, but ended up buying some high quality, reasonably priced clothing and a hat. The ice cream looked really good. I would have ordered orange-pineapple. This store reminds me of an old time 5 & dime...More

We had ice cream as a snack. We sat by the water and enjoyed our ice cream. We both got two scoops! Very good!

Everyone should stop by the General Store for ice cream after dinner. Very good ice cream. The salted caramel was the best!

This general store was everything you would expect from it. I went there twice and the prices were good and the store was very clean

We came here for a cone after lunch. They are rather limited in their offerings but my ice cream cone was large and my wife loved the piece of fudge we bought. The staff was friendly and let us sample before we purchased.

This was a general store which had a deli in the back. Unfortunately, its corporate ownership closed it down. a year or two ago. The sandwiches were great, and it had a great ambience. It was a very convenient stop for locals in the area...More

The sandwiches we got were very good, but it took forever to get them. The place was packed & busy which I guess speaks to the quality of the food. Would have rated it higher had we been able to get our take out sandwiches...More
