Tired one night, we crossed the street from the Residence Inn to try out this little place set way back from the road. It looked like it just sold ice cream, but we got burgers and they were the best burgers we've had in ages! Cooked fresh for us, with sweet potato fries and then had to have a banana... More

My friends and I came right before closing on a Saturday night. The owner was there and greeted us with a smile and welcomed us. We had never been there before and all the girls on staff were smiling and answered all of our questions. They gave suggestions and were so friendly. The ice cream was delicious and so was... More

They really make great burgers here and the French fries may well be the best in town. Certainly as good as any place we've tried lately. Service is friendly and yes...they make everything fresh so if you go through drive through you will have to wait while they cook your order. But what's wrong with that? Wonderful place. Please check... More

Every winter, when we come to Fernandina Beach, We always stop at DeNucci's for their wonderful soft serve ice cream. Not only is the soft serve ice cream delicious but the food they serve is as well. We strongly recommend a stop here when in the area.

I'm still searching for the frozen custard I grew up with in New Orleans. Although the custard taste I look for was not quite there, the frozen custard was creamy and quite good.

If you are looking for Ice Cream... This is not it. This is a frozen custard stand, and not an Ice Cream stand. Too bad as otherwise it would be quaint. The flavor is so far off of being the smooth rich and creamy ice cream taste. So... If you're a custard fan, then maybe this is your kind of... More

What can I say; the ice cream was good. They have a nice play area for small children (fenced). Shaded parking available.

Nice local non chain ice cream shop. Ice cream was very creamy, different flavor and very good service.

What's not to love about a locally owned shop that has the best ice cream, soft serve and frozen deserts in town! I love the Dole Whip, but have a hard time staying away from vanilla soft serve with hot fudge and pecans. The folks are always friendly and most patient.
