Big Buck's Homemade Ice Cream is located in the Tim Buck II shopping center in Corolla, so it's in a convenient location if you are out shopping or for dinner. The ice cream is good, however, we found it to be VERY expensive - I...More

Buck's has the name. And they paid to be big on advertising. But we were not impressed. I got two dips of cake batter. It was two tiny dips, the second dip being half the size of the first. Taste was pretty good. My wife...More

Not sure what has happened to Big Buck's, which used to be very reliable. My family went there earlier this week and to the person we threw out what we purchased. The ice cream was tasteless. Are there new owners, perhaps?

Great ice cream and super helpful staff. It's a little bit hidden in the middle of the TimBuck2 shopping center, but worth the effort!

We stopped here for desert one night, and this is an interesting type place in that the shelves are stocked with an amazing assortment of candy, in addition to a chocolate candy counter. I went with the chocolate-chocolate chip ice cream; the ice cream was...More

Def NOT enough room for group of 23 people inside... it's a fairly small place. Yes, there are open areas outside in the Timbuck II shopping area that would work for a group that size.
