One of our favorite entrepreneurial local treasures is nestled between the Southwind and Tara neighborhoods of Savannah Lakes Village (at the intersection of Highways 7 and 378 behind the Village Store). A retail seafood market by day and an ice cream parlor by late afternoon/early evening, the two businesses share a storefront. Both emphasize quality fare and friendly service.
Rod Morris and Deb Nester moved to Savannah Lakes Village six years ago. At that time, there was no fresh seafood available here. Lovers of shrimp--they would drive to Georgia and pick up their favorite seafood. Word got out, and neighbors started asking them to pick up some extra. Soon, Rod and Deb were selling Georgia shrimp out of their garage. The community response was so great that they decided to open a retail seafood market. The market (Shrimp One) continues to offer responsibly harvested fish and domestic shrimp. Stop by on Thursday or Friday between 11-2p to purchase frozen seafood, or call to order fresh fish, certified Angus beef steaks, or pork.
The Ice Cream Parlor
The Ice Cream Parlor celebrates its seventh summer in business! A delightful excursion on hot summer days and nights, the parlor operated by four generations of the Dulmas family (who also own Alpine Construction and live near Southwind). They offer twenty-four flavors. Officially, the parlor is open from April 1st through October 1st; however, they have opened early and closed late the last three summers. We are hoping for ice cream on Halloween this year!
