  • We were not greeted by the store attendant who was folding T-shirts right inside the main entrance. This was fine since we actually came for ice cream at Bubba's Ice Cream Shack. The ice cream was absolutely delicious, however, the service leaves a lot to be desired. Two young ladies neither acknowledged our presence nor asked to assist us. Instead they continued the conversation they were having when we arrived. My friend actually asked her daughters what they wanted because the workers did not. Danny, the young man, asked my son and I what we would like. He was extremely friendly and courteous. He began dipping my ice-cream and was reprimanded by one of the young ladies who rudely told him it was too large of a portion. I thanked him and we took our ice-cream to the front porch and enjoyed it. Again, the icecream is delicious but the service is poor. If I could, I'd give Danny and the ice-cream a 5 star review.
  • Store full of a whole lot of nothing. Want a mug with your name on it? Yup, they got it! Keychain? Yup, that too. Candy? Uh huh. Cheaply made toys? Bingo! Fake jewelry? That too........
  • Very cool place. Guy behind the counter was knowledgeable and friendly. Great representative of Colonial Williamsburg
  • Adorable store but the hand dipped ice cream with large chocolate dipped/peanut coating strawberry ice cream cone with Awesome. We received excellent service too
  • A lot of fun to look around, but way overpriced. If you are looking to kill a half hour or so, this is the place.

Where to stay in Williamsburg

Williamsburg offers lodgings for every taste, including four-star resorts, quaint inns, and budget-friendly hotels. Accommodations in the city's historical district provide easy access to all of the area's major attractions, but they also charge much higher prices than equally comfortable guesthouses in some of the outlying neighborhoods. For a genuine Virginian experience, consider pitching a tent or renting a cottage in one of the area's popular campgrounds, which offer shuttle services to the city's major attractions and provide free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and fenced-in areas for pets.
