Our friends took us to have an ice cream dessert after dinner. So glad they did. A definite repeat. So many things to choose from. Yummy :)

Kiddie size should be the only option (and should be renamed as A regular size). People tonk kiddie and assume it's child size and order small or large which is MASSIVE. Everyone in our party ordered small or large and it was obscene. I saw and heard many people make the same mistake. The icecream was great but it's very... More

It's a great place to bring kids for ice cream! There are lots of flavor a to choose from too as well as a small selection of water ice. They also hold events for families on certain nights of the week!

Lots of choices for ice cream in downtown Avalon. The Buccaneer is a great choice. Many flavors of home made ice cream. They also make their own waffle cones, the great smell of cooking waffle will influence your choice. Try the salted caramel.

Kids got the "ship wrecked" ice cream sundae. LOVED IT!! All the staff are great with kids and patient as they take their time making their choice! Ice cream is fresh and tastes fantastic!

We always hit the buccaneer after our yearly visit to Pirate golf. The lines get longs so go early. The ice cream is delicious and the servings are absolutely ginormous.... The always seem to have entertainment. We especially like the magician. Go early and get a good seat or you will be standing. Best kid spot in Avalon for dessert....

This ice cream place is my favorite when visiting Avalon! There are SO Many different flavors of ice cream as well as many different toppings! The sizes are HUGE so make sure you are hungry or sharing when you order! The only issue I see is that it is pricey for the ice cream but you do receive a lot!

Our group, which ranged in age from 4-years-old to 48, all loved their made-to-order ice cream. They do an excellent job of preparing it fresh, with all natural ingredients. I would have given it 5 stars if they had sugar-free ice cream, which they have had in previous visits. I felt abit disappointed when I saw everyone enjoying theirs so... More

We tried 3 different ice cream venues in Avalon and this one ranks a distant third from the rest. Service was good even though crowded, but the ice cream doesn't match the service. We found Sundae Best to be much better, but try the two places and you be the judge!

Look at the lines- enough said! Apparently not- they require 100 words! LOTS of flavors, nice sized portions and, if you have a group of kids, they have a deal with many scoops and toppings in one dish. They bring it out with a celebratory style. I had a blast just watching the kids dig in.
