Had to have a milk shake and this is the spot in Atlantic Beach. Thought it was on the pricey side but the taste and quantity of ice cream made it a real bargain. Plenty of selections for the whole family and quick, friendly service.

Lots of great ice cream flavors. Some GF (gluten free) selections. Small selection of candy. Seating both inside and outside. Reasonable prices. Friendly service and fun for all.

We went for the ice cream. They offer an abundant selection of Hershey ice cream flavors. I had the dark chocolate raspberry truffle. It's reminiscent of the same flavor offered at Brewsters. Delicious!!! My daughter had a coconut flavor that tasted like you were eating...More

Reminds me of Kilwin's in Blowing Rock, NC! The sweet smell just draws you in. We had milkshakes and everyone wanted more. Has won many awards for its ice cream and fudge.

I couldn't believe there were only two options for ice cream at Atlantic beach. This was definitely a great place with awesome ice cream choices, homemade fudge, and nostalgic candies. This is a must!

The BEST ice-cream selection and it is delicious! What more can I say? Oh, and they have lots of homemade fudge!

We always stop here during our trip. I'm a bit of an ice cream snob so I skip the Hershey's ice cream and go for the bulk candy. The fudge looked fresh & delicious and I think we will try it next time.
