We've been here a couple times and the staff is always friendly. Wide variety of ice creams and mix-ins. We've tried a couple of their Signature Creations options like GermanChokolateKake and Chocolate Overload and we're always happy! They hand-mix your ice cream, so it stays nice and chunky. I would recommend finding a coupon for buy-one-get-one-free if you can as it can get pricey; but it is really yummy!

We had a nice dinner here of three tacos and a enchalata plate. And a 1/2 pitcher of Margarettas, which were quite weak.

Starbucks

Reviewed By akearney04 - Newport News

This visit was my worst at a Starbucks-and I go a lot. Both bathrooms where out of soap. When I inquired- I was told the store was completely out. The girl seemed very unconcerned- and frankly annoyed that I asked. She said they were having to send someone to get some. I then asked if I could use some hand sanitizer and she said they didn't have any. So you are all making my coffee and handling food with dirty hands . The worst part, though, was the lack of concern. Not even an I'm sorry.
The guy making the drinks was nice- however he messed up my order. He apologized, but proceeded to make about 6 drinks before remaking mine.
I think this store could use some lessons on customer service and proper inventory control.

Hills of Snow

Reviewed By James S - New York City, New York

You can't miss it, a big snowcone sitting right outside of the city center. It's pure Americana!
It's really hard to decide, there is a big selection of sizes and 101 flavors! On this trip I picked the Cherry Coco Cola. It was crazy good. There is plenty of liquid and the flavor bursts.
This is a great, fun stop just a few miles off busy I-95!

White Swan Barbecue INC

White Swan Bar-B-Q features award winning genuine Eastern North Carolina pork barbecue. Made from a 50 year old secret recipe, White Swan Bar-B-Que has been voted one of the top 25 Bar-B-Qs in the SouthEast. Eastern North Carolina Bar-B-Q is unlike any other in the world. It's a taste that you must experience. Our Bar-B-Q is made with a vinegar and spice sauce which enhances the smoked flavor of the fresh pork. The pork is slowly cooked in a covered cooker which holds in the smoked flavor. The meat is then chopped, ready to eat. Great on sandwiches in a hamburger bun with cold slaw or buy itself, there is no other Bar-B-Q like it. Platter items include the best Pork Bar-B-Q, Fried Chicken, Fried Shrimp, and other Side dishes! Try the Brunswick stew, boiled potatoes, cole slaw, french fries, and fried pork skins. And of course, a basket of the White Swan's celebrated hushpuppies are served with each platter. Private dining facilities for groups of up to 50 people are available. Also Catering is available to you and your guest with a variety of items. Six locations to serve you.

I love this sort of barbecue place: unpretentious, more about meat than fancy descriptions or creative ingredients. We made a first but not last visit while passing through the area. We tried plates of both eastern NC style pork and fried chicken, with slaw and...MoreVery glad that you enjoyed your visit! We love hearing from our customers and look forward to seeing y'all when you stop back by!

Reviewed By James H - Titusville

Our last experience was average so we thought we would try again as we were passing through with family. We had five and the food, service, atmosphere were all very good. Drinks were served quickly and the orders were delivered just as we planned. The rolls were fresh and warm. The waiter was on the spot and helped make our visit successful. I am pleased we went back and gave it the second chance. Rib eye, salmon and surf and turf were our choices.
