It was nice, and a few years ago I had a pretty good "Philly" cheesesteak, but this trip was purely for ice cream. It was a Saturday evening, and cool weather had moved in, so there were not a lot of people, but things moved slowly. Quality was good, but the prices made me feel like I was a captive... More

Went here with my sons for an ice cream supper . The place was clean, clerks were friendly and the ice cream was good. Had a lot of different selections of hard ice cream. Recommend others to go.

We just stopped for ice cream and it was pretty good. It had a great selection and samples. Decent customer service but felt a little rushed.

We loved sitting on the patio with our dog and enjoy ice cream on Christmas day. They are super nice, and their ice cream is wonderful. It's a charming place!

So food was OK. Usually greasy spoon fare. Service was not acceptable. Staff was curt and annoyed by having to take my order. Place was not busy I sat at counter to eat. It was also being used as a prep station while I sat there and ate. The staff is confused about glove use when performing food preparation. So... More

Excellent! Large portions and friendly staff. My husband had a hot fudge sundae which was enough for 3 people. The smallest cone had to scoops. Enjoy!

As we were heading back to our hotel room we made a pit stop for some ice cream. The scoop size was awesome. Ice cream flavors were around twnenty eight in hand dip alone. The taste was out of the world. Customer service was prompt and super friendly. The atmosphere was very family friendly. Yes, credit cards are expensive. Two... More

Holy moly. So many flavors. Such big scoops!!!! This was our afternoon pick-me-up after going on a tour of the Charleston Distillery and boy, were we shocked at the size of our ice creams! Between the four adults in our party we tried at least 5 flavors and all were just wonderful. The service was excellent as well. We would... More

Huge hamburgers and sandwiches. The ice cream was heavenly with lots of choices and so creamy. The service is fast and friendly. This place has a steady stream of customers because it has good food and fast service. Nothing fancy. They do have a drive through but it is at a busy intersection. We went in to eat both times.

Came here on a whim while on vacation and we weren't disappointed. Only had ice cream but it was so creamy and delicious! It is a little pricey but it's real and they def aren't skimpy with the scoops!
