The waitstaff wasn't very friendly, but they can't take away from our enjoyment of ice cream. The prices are a bit high (in comparison to Leopold's in Savannah that we had eaten 2 days prior).

Stopped in twice while in Charleston. They have a great selection of hard ice cream, possibly 30-40 flavors. I got the Banana Fudge Pie in a waffle cone both days. It was divine for sure! We also tried the Salted Caramel. They let you sample any flavor, which is nice. The service wasn't very good or friendly, but it is... More

We recently visited Charleston for the first time and stopped in to Kilwins (a favorite store we often visit in Delaware) for a delicious treat. The candy we bought (a cashew milk chocolate bear claw) was wonderful just as we expected, but the service we received was not sweet at all.

We have never met a Kilwin's shop that we didn't love. This visit was extra great because the had made a fresh batch of caramel corn and the were giving out warm samples. OMG!!!!! My favorite ice cream is the chocolate and peanut butter in a waffle cone.....never disappointed!

This shop sells ice cream, fudge, and candy. I thought the ice cream was quite good. I would recommend that you stop here for a treat.

We had ice-cream here but were blown away but the counters full of fudge, toffee apples and other sweet treats. Ice cream is pricey but good quality.

While window shopping, we saw way too many goodies tempting us to enter. One sample of their peanut butter fudge made me reach for my wallet.

Kilwins is a chain. A good chain but a chain. Next time I would check out a local place. The fudge was very good and the place was always packed.

Just unbelievable the size of the toffee apples and a wide choice too. You need a very sweet tooth to purchase these. Staff were friendly and you can always buy just one piece to share.
