Walking distance from the Surfside Beach Resort and great service! They have other items on their menu besides Ice Cream.....We have had lunch here too and it is really good. Don't waste your time going into Myrtle Beach when everything you need is right here in Surfside!

We came down to Surfside in both March and September and made sure to stop here both trips. Our teenage kids turned us on to it first....after a hot walk down to the Surfside pier, they crossed the street Sophia's to cool off with some ice cream and loved it. I think they ended up stopping there every day we... More

This ice cream parlor was nice but not many choices of ice cream. We just decided on settling for soft serve in a cup.

Buckeye Brian from Ohio turned me on to Sophia's and we drove down from Myrtle Beach for ice cream. We were not disappointed. The M&M sundae was fantastic as was all the ice cream we had. Very nice people and a clean and friendly atmosphere. A must have if in the area.

We've been coming to Surfside Beach for the last 5 years and we never miss out on at least one - but usually more - visits to Sophia's for ice cream. Sophia's not only has a great selection of hard ice cream but also soft serve ice cream in over 30 flavors! Sophia's is located right across the road from... More

I ate dessert here after eating dinner at Bubba's Fish Shack. It's within walking distance. Everyone else was full, so I went by myself. Going out to eat ice cream at least once at the beach is traditional. After contemplating all of my choices, I decided on chocolate peanut butter, since I like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups so well. It... More

The burgers are not frozen patties that you get almost everywhere else. The prices are cheap and you can watch them make all the grilled food while you are there. Excellent breakfast menu.
