Finally found a lactose free ice cream in AMI! The girls at the counter were knowledgeable and helpful with knowing which items were lactose free and even making sure that none of the scoops, spoons etc. touched anything with lactose. The place was kind of run down and dirty, but the ice cream hit the spot.

The girls enjoyed what they ordered, which was a two scoop on a waffle cone and that came up to about $14. Just hard to believe they charge so much. Not sure if I would go back.

The ice cream was good, I'll admit, but the place is a dump. Bathrooms were disgusting. Old equipment sitting around with duct tape and blankets strew across and the patio could have used a serious wash and coat of paint. As I ate my sorbet I could only focus on telling myself that surely the kitchen was cleaner.

We stopped in later in the night, so I'll preface my review with that. The ice cream was good, service could have been a little better, but again, it was just prior to them closing. If you're hot and need refreshing ice cream, I would go back again. But it's nothing extraordinary.

As most places on the island, there is usually a wait and limited seating. The ice cream is so yummy and there are some really unique favors to try!

We love this place. It's a must every time we go to AMI. This year we went during the day and it was slow but if you go at night....prepare to wait. The wait is work it because the homemade ice cream is so awesome.

We've been twice on this vacation and both times it's been very busy. I think that's due to the fact that they don't start serving other people until the party in front has paid. They have several workers and could easily be taking orders for other people. But their homemade ice cream is delicious. The brownie batter is to die... More

Great ice cream and waffle cones. Didn't use the restroom or stay there to eat so I cannot comment on the cleanliness of it. We have been coming to Joe's for years and will continue to go there.
