One of many visits for ice cream. The usual choices in a good location. Pricey but reliable. Shipwreck challenge is good

Ice cream is delicious! There are a million different flavors, they even have ice cream for dogs! Their serving size are huge! I always get a kiddie size, because of how large they are!

What makes this place is the fun attitude, and the crazy menu, including the shipwreck: 15 balls of 3 flavors of ice cream, covered in whipping cream and a side of all of their toppings, served in a pirate hat. There are also countless combinations of sundaes and ice cream flavors and toppings. The only thing lacking is more complex... More

The Buccaneer has great ice cream and many flavors. It's the shore, where ice cream isn't bargain prices, but the portions are generous. There are a variety of combinations and sundaes available. Of course the most famous is the Ship Wreck. In peak season, the place is mobbed, but it's spacious inside so it makes it easier to wait on... More

First off, "the order taker" was blocking off the counter like a bouncer at a bar. She was unfriendly and very indimidating. The service was quick and precise but that is when i started to drink my milkshake. You might as well bought a quart of whole milk for 2 dollars and saved yourself the time and trouble. If i...

The service was so slow. Last year we went and it was slow, but it was crowded. This year, we went and they were just all standing around!! It took at least ten minutes for them to make our "ship-wrecked". This was my second ship-wreck, and the difference of experience was crazy. Last year, I was with 10 under 18... More

Nice assortment of ice cream flavors offered at this clean, large ice cream shop. They even had a bacon sundae (ewwwww) which none of us tried. Apparently they have a magician there on Mondays to entertain the kids. We were there during off season, but I bet the place is a lot of fun throughout the summer. I would return.... More

Big selection of ice cream and toppings. They also sell fudge. It's very expensive though, a child's size is 3 scoops and it's $4!

I found all the ice cream in Avalon to be overpriced. But at least here - the pairings were imaginative and the service fast. The college students running the place seemed to have it under control. Some flavors were quite unusual and good - I had something that included caramel, pretzels and fudge. The line is inside - but moves... More

Wonderful ice cream shop in the heart of Avalon,NJ. Long summer lines move quickly with employees taking your order while waiting-genius!
