Their selection of Sundaes is terrific and delicious.They have a great selection of sugarfree too. Good service and outside eating. If out at the beach, Do not miss it.

I've been visiting Joe's for ice cream for at least 10 years. After a couple of years away from the island, I stopped in for scoops of my two favorite flavors. It is as good as it's ever been. It's one of my favorite places to get ice cream in the area.

Huge range of ice creams and other frozen treats, probably the best on the island. Well worth a look in.

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!

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
