This is the perfect stop for an after dinner treat. We stopped in on a cool rainy evening and had a great experience. They make all their own ice cream and the quality shows. Many unique flavors like Cotton Candy, Chocolate Cayenne, Heath Bar, Banana Pudding. Two people serving ice cream were quick and friendly. The inside is clean and... More

Hilton Head Ice Cream is the best ice cream on the island and they have many flavors. They also have a section where you can add all the sprinkles, and jimmys, and whatever you like, to top off your creation. So good! Actually it's good that I don't live down the south end of the island as I would look... More

They serve THE best ice cream in a lovely, clean shop. All home made and plenty of toppings if you choose to add any to your order. There is an outside deck to enjoy your ice cream or soda and an inside option too.

We always go here for a special treat. It's always busy - the line is out the door. You can pour on the additional sprinkles and whatnot as you wish. So much more here than your regular parlor!

I visited Hilton Head Ice Cream over the New Years holiday and was so happy I stopped in! The staff member, Jeff, who helped me and my grandmother was so friendly and patient as I tried half a dozen flavors before choosing Espresso and Peanut Butter Cup. The quality of the ice cream is so spectacular - creamy and rich,... More

HHI Ice Cream has probably dreamed up flavors you've never thought of. They make it all there, too. You might think it's a little expensive, but they let you taste before you decide.

This eatery is CLEAN, CLEAN - CLEAN ! The ice cream is homemade and you can tell the difference ! Certainly NOT INEXPENSIVE but worth every penny. Try the HOT FUDGE SUNDAE - Reminds me of Brigham's in the old days. Kids can put toppings on their ice cream ( with adult oversight ). A bit tough to find as... More

Hours online (on multiple websites) have the store hours from 2-10, however, the hours are actually 2-8. We were met rudely at the door at 7:58 and told they were closed, and to come back later. I think I'll pass.

My apologies for you interaction. I would if it might have been another night as I looked at our cameras for the night in question. Not only did we have no customers between 7:45-8:05 but we even stayed open until 8:50 that evening having wrung up three transactions after 8 pm. We pride ourselves on customer service and we would... More

So there's a reason I always gain a couple pounds when we go to HHI, and this place is it! Hands down, best ice cream on the planet. So many fantastic flavors...but I'm a total sucker for the Oreo. We go there at least a couple times a week, and also bring some back to our condo or house for... More

All of our ice cream is homemade the way mom and pop shops used to make ice cream before people started watering down or pumping air into ice cream. Our ice cream is rich in cream and is dense because we do not pump air into our product. We have over 40 flavors available at a time from traditional flavors to more creative flavors. Come on in and give us a try, after all we were voted BEST ICE CREAM in SOUTH CAROLINA by Business Insider in 2015 !
