King's Homemade Ice Cream Shops

Homemade ice cream parlors in the heart of downtown Lewes & Milton, DE. We specialize in simple, quality flavors, toppings, shakes, sodas & floats. Half gallon containers are also available to take home!

Reviewed By Deanna C

This was a great ittle ice cream shop. There are over 15 flavors of homemade icecream. They also have yogurt and sherbert. I had the black raspberry in a cup. They have waffle cones and regular cones as well as may toppings. Great little find in Milton! The staff (two young ladies) were very pleasant and attentive to customers. They also allow you to sample before you buy. They have some seating inside and some benches outside.

Reviewed By Joseph N - Lancaster, Pennsylvania

I met the brain-child of Gooey Donuts phenom, Doug, this morning doing what he loves a lot...making the best tasting donuts in Milton, DE, East Coast, USA, the world. His saying, "the second mouse gets the cheese" conotes wisdom, pride, and life. Eating his concoctions makes you smile.
His donuts are freshly made, one at a time. They are not like any donuts you have ever tasted...including Fractured Prune or Duck brands. I will never again be satisfied with subpar donuts. We will all benefit even more come this September 2017 when we can order his donuts from his new website and get them shipped near and far to family and friends. Hey GD fans? Let's keep eating these gems and make Doug famous. Good job, Doug!!! I will be back for more Gooey Donuts. Joe Nolt, Lancaster, PA. 08/15/2017

The Backyard

The Backyard. A market, restaurant and bakery focusing on seasonal and local foods. Traditional favorites and new ideas.

Reviewed By dawnzjones1961 - Baltimore, Maryland

The place was bright and airy.Friendly service.A bottle of wine was only $20.We tried calamari,which had a flavorful breading and tender centers.We had to have the Trucker sandwich-Texas toast with pulled pork and mac'n'cheese.As good as it sounds.But we balanced that with a very healthy grilled shrimp over quinoa salad,which was served with a lime dressing.This was delicious.I don't usually bother with dessert,but all the reviews mentioned them.We had a peanut butter/chocolate cheesecake pie.Very good.Plenty to share.We can't wait to try some other things on the menu.

Irish Eyes

Reviewed By MissSeaweed - Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey

We stopped in to kill time and eat before visiting the famous brewery in town. We had the good fortune to meet an awesome bartender, buy a souvenir shirt, and enjoy a good meal. The Reuben on marbled rye was excellent. Fish and chips was big enough to serve two, and very fresh. We enjoyed our short stay here and look forward to returning to try more of the menu and good company.

Smokin D'z - Real Pit BBQ

Reviewed By Ben M

This place had the best ribs I have had in years. Well seasoned and so tender they just pulled apart. The vinegar sauce they used was really tasty. It had a nice sweet tang to it. Staff was very friendly and happy to show me their setup. All in all a great stop that anyone who appreciates bbq should make.

This pizza is far better than any in Delaware. My Go Meditteranean pizza was awesome. My feeble words in this review cannot describe the abundant tastes that are included in this pie. My sincere thanks to a business dedicated to the pizza cusromer. Their wings are also well received. Check it out soon. Great food. Great restaurant. Great workers. = Great life.

Went in for lunch as it was within walking distance from our car. It's a nice atmosphere and decor upon entering. Sandwich/sub options were plentiful and the portion of meat, cheese etc given on sandwich was more then enough. Borderline to much. Would go back again when in need of lunch in Milton

Cantina Ultima

Reviewed By Chris K - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Why would ANYONE dine here? Went in prior to a play; started by ordering a martini from the bar, and was told "we don't serve martinis". Ordered margaritas instead... $9 for a JOKE of a drink. Not even decently made.

Ordered a burger... expected a standard plate, but the ONLY thing that came was a tired-looking bun with a hint of beef inside- no fries, no pickle, no potato chips.... nothing else. When asked about fries.."oh, those will be extra". My wife ordered the salmon.... the waiter actually suggested she order TWO entrees because "our portions are pretty small" (and it surely was). Other meals equally ridiculous but expensive.

DO NOT eat here.... a complete waste of your money and time.

Reviewed By PITTparent - PA

Stopped in Overstuffed Sandwich for lunch. My first time here. Tried the grilled ham and cheese. Perfect sandwich, fresh, toasted nicely, plenty of ham and cheese. Outstanding flavor. I think I found my favorite sandwich shop. You have to try the Overstuffed Sandwich shop.
