The owner is friendly and welcoming, and the Hersheys ice cream is the best I've ever had. I don't know why it's so good, maybe it's fresher? I don't know, but we had Hershey's ice cream at another place in the outer banks and it...More

So glad we hit on this place (especially since many featured restaurants are still closed at this time of year). The BBQ sandwich with coleslaw was delicious . . . one of the best I've ever had. The chocolate shake was good, too. The perfect...More

I love ice cream and I was assuming (which you know what the means) that this creamery made their own ice cream. This is not the case. It is Hersey Ice Cream which was consumable. There was some fudge and chocolates in the display case....More
