Ye Ole Fashioned has been a lowcountry staple since 1972, when Rod Lapin opened the West Ashley café. Since, it has grown to six locations in the low country area, including the two Summerville stores owned by Lapin's son, Todd. While each Ye Ole Fashioned puts their own twist on menus and interiors, their devotion to outstanding customer service and providing large portions, in a family friendly environment, holds true throughout every location.
Of course, what everyone looks forward to when visiting Ye Ole Fashioned, is the multi award winning ice cream! With a selection of over 30 flavors, including the classics and fun seasonal options, there is always something for everyone. Their massive sundaes and famous banana splits are a must try - great for sharing on date night, or indulging solo! Ye Ole's ice cream has won awards through many local publications, including holding the title for Charleston City Paper's Best Ice Cream the last 12 years and Best Milkshake the last 3 years. The Post and Courier also named Ye Ole Fashioned as Charleston's Best Family Friendly and Best Food Value. So, come in to treat yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
