Awesome selections.... Needed napkins though. Huge scoops. Loved the sugar free options. Bathroom was hot and needed an overhaul, but the desserts were to die for... Loved it!

Excellent ice cream in a fun setting... right near the beach. Great range of flavors. Family favorite.

We were told that this was the best place for ice cream on the island so I had high expectations. The outside is brightly colored and looks inviting especially if you have kids. The inside looks like a dirty, musty, old camping lodge... Plastic, mounted deer head included. (I am not kidding.) BUT I know that looks can be deceiving... More

I've never had a bad "treat" here. My all time favorite, and my son & daughters, is the strawberry cheesecake (or is it shortcake lol) Nonetheless, it is delicious! My only gripe is that it's the seating area. It really never looks clean....tables kinda sticky and somewhat warm

This place had great reviews, and I really wanted to like it. The prices were high, and I have had better ice cream from the grocery store. The service was also mediocre.

Stopped here on the way back from the beach because we had promised the kids an ice cream. I can tolerate a building being shabby on the outside but there was no excuse for dirt on the inside. Kids declared the ice cream to be delicious, but tables, floor and toilets were disgusting. I only hope the kitchen was cleaner.... More

We visited Joes eats and sweets after playing the adventure golf. The outside of the building does not look the best but the ice cream is great. We would definitely go back.

My son is nut allergic; they opened a brand new container of mint chocolate chip ice cream to scoop his cone and also used a clean, unused scoop. Not only were these efforts super impressive but when he licked the cone a few times and it fell out of the cone (he's 7 yrs old) they made him another one... More

We returned on our current trip after enjoying it last year. Ice cream, sundaes and soft serve were all good. The wait was about 10 minutes. Parking was at a premium and I wondered why they had a guy with a golf club sitting in a chair in the parking area. The place was much cleaner this year than last.... More

It was yummy! Huge selection of flavors. We will go again. It was very busy but they got you through the line quickly. Three ice creams $22.
