The ice cream was good, service was fine and prices average. They have many, many flavors. I do wish they had more of a thing where you get 2-4 smaller scoops in a dish so you can try more flavors. They do this at my favorite place in MN Izzys. They do an Izzy scoop on every cone or dish... More

We were in Raleigh for four days and went to FRESH twice... That should be a hint to how great this place was. There were so many different flavors that my wife and I wanted to try so we had to come back and get more. We would be in major trouble if their was a FRESH Local Ice Cream... More

Very very good but very pricey. Great quality however. Our dog loved his doggie sundae and my pineapple sundae was wonderful too.

Found this ice cream spot driving around a few weeks ago...and Oh My Goodness!! Their ice cream is amazing!! I got the Carolina Crunch and it's the perfect blend of sweet and salty, and my 8 y.o. gets the Birthday Cake with sprinkles. The employees are sweet, helpful with suggestions, and FAST! A must try spot for ice cream lovers!

Ice cream is really good. Can get busy at times. Has corn hole game to play while waiting. Order at one window, pick up at another window. Outside seating only.

We went there in a very hot summer day. We chose the place based on the amazing online reviews. When we got there, we were disappointed that the seating was only outdoors. The bees bothered us for a while. The ice cream was also somehow disappinting, as we expected a healthy, flavorful, not so sweet icecream.

We stopped in on our way home by chance for a sweet treat. Fast friendly service at the walk up window, plenty of outdoor seating and lots of different flavors to choose from. The pumpkin was amazing with pieces of crust in the ice cream and 'Carolina crunch' was tasty. I high recommend this place for a yummy sweet treat!
