Very fun place to stop in for ice cream with my daughter after an arts/crafts class in the east beach town center. However, they informed me that the Kiawah resort management is tearing this down to build a hotel for the upcoming 2021 PGA championship....More

Overpriced ice cream - nothing special - just ice cream- no seating inside & unenthusiastic employees.

We thought the portions were good size, but we also had small kids that we didn't want to get too sugared up. Not a lot of seating and selection was OK, but still a great spot. It's close to beach access and close to a...More

We didn't think the scoops were exceptionally small, as noted by many of the reviews. We enjoyed the experience and were greatful for an ice cream shop which was so convenient to our rental unit.

The size of the scoop was disgraceful, but the service was even worse. The bill was $16 for four of the smallest scoops I've ever seen. The staff were sullen and unfriendly and it was quite a disappointment for my family visiting from Scotland. This...More

This is convenient but I've had much better ice cream. It was pretty average and we had hoped for something more. There were a variety of toppings which were great for our 7 year old.
