Amazing sundaes - just a but scruffy

It's always refreshing to get ice cream from a locally owned establishment that makes their own ice cream. They advertise only the finest ingredients and freshest fruit. This rustic place offers homemade ice cream, soft serve ice cream, sugar free options, shakes sorbets and more. Tons of options for toppings or mix ins and a slew of sundae options. Anyone... More

We enjoyed our vacation so much more every night with a quick trip to Joe's for a little sweet treat. It gets packed but the line moves fast. All the ice cream is home made and they have so many flavors to choose from. We all got a different flavor or menu item each night and we were never disappointed.... More

My wife and I always walk here to get our ice cream at lunch. It's a nice walk down the beach for great service and really good ice cream!

Man, this place had it all for an ice cream joint. Awesome ice cream flavors (a BUNCH to choose from!). The colors! The outdoor & indoor seating! VIDEO GAMES! :) It's a kids place to be...and adult kids, like me. We stopped here on our way back to Ana Maria from a day in Sarasota. The perfect place to stop,... More

We stopped in for a treat because the other place wasn't open yet. The place was probably really nice a few years ago but it just seemed rundown. Inside it was not real clean and I was a bit hesitant to order. The staff was nice but it's hard to overcome a general lack of cleanliness. The ice cream was... More

They most definitely need to scrub and redecorate- our group felt like it was right out of a horror movie- but the ice cream was good and the flavors are interesting. Really wish it was not so overpriced- why is a scoop of ice cream almost $4??!!

My son could live on ice cream--he loved the choices of flavors (even though he got the same thing). Nice location across from the beach. Other reviews are accurate--bit run down, but it's a beach town ice cream shop…the service is sloooooowwww.
