Definitely try the s'mores ice cream, it is amazing. We visited a few times during our vacation because we were staying right across the road. They are reasonably priced and their customer service is outstanding. They really go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your experience.

When traveling in groups sometimes one subject never seems to die down... with us it was ICE CREAM. Thank goodness we found Happy Belly. After a couple of sundaes and shakes we were already planning our next visit. Make the effort and enjoy!

I got a generous two scoops of s'mores flavored ice cream in a cone. A very tasty treat! Husband got a cookie sundae which he said was delicious. We left with two happy bellies. Screened porch for sitting and enjoying your ice cream or benches outside. Service was good too.

Quaint place right on 12 just as you arrive on the island. Nice and cold inside, a great break from the beach heat. Good selections of interesting flavors. HUGE single serving size. Friendly service. A hit with the kids.

My family and I came here one evening and we then came two more times during our 7 day beach vacation. I rented a bike with a toddler seat attached to the back which allowed me to bike up to this little shop with my two year old son. My husband followed us with another bike rental for himself. We...

Conveniently located for where we were. It was a hot day and the ice cream was nice in a pinch. A good variety to choose from. Shaded area outside to eat your ice cream.
