Bluebell Ice Cream and you must pay cash. There are games (foosball, large checkers, etc.) and the kids love it!

I didn't appreciate paying $7 for a shake and 3$ for a small scoop of grocery store ice cream. Cash only is a pain and outdated. Not a good experience as we had a large party of teenagers. Won't return.More

I'm sorry you feel that way. But my 20 ounce shakes are $ 6.00 and Texas state tax brings it to $6.50. Not $7.00. The large single scoop is $2.75 and tax brings it to $3. Cash prevents a lot of credit card fraud and...More

The ice cream is Blue Bell and the brownie isn't anything spectacular but it was delicious and perfect for an afternoon treat. The games throughout are cute and a nice addition to the ice cream run. Cash only is the only negative for us.

We ordered cheesecake, Dr. Pepper float and ice cream on sugar cone--all delicious. Blue Bell Ice Cream flavors are served here. The brownie sundae was HUGE and I had no one to split it with, so I didn't get it. There was a great selection...More

This is a cute whimsical ice cream shop. Plenty of seating. Games to play like checkers. They sell Blue Bell ice cream (a Texas favorite). They had me torn between the famous warm brownie sundae and the big fat banana split. I went with the...More

Ice cream was great (Blue Bell), limeade was a little disappointing. This place is crazy colorful indoors, the walls covered with all kinds of things to look at, walls painted all different colors, chairs and tables hand-painted and bedazzled. The decor is a little overwhelming...More

After 8 years in Port Aransas I have moved down the main street, Alister, after new owners bought the building I was in. I re-opened in February 2013 . If you want to keep having my Famous Brownie Sundaes, coffee shakes, Key Lime Pie shake, cheesecake, apple pie and the Big Fat Banana Split come to the new 2700 sq. ft. shop. Same bright pink and yellow colors with the decor collected from my travels around the world. If you go looking for me in my old location KNOW that it is not me. There is only one Desserted Island! Smell the brownies!
