Joe's eats and sweets undoubtedly has the best ice cream that I've ever had. Every time I go here I always get the pineapple coconut ice cream. This time I also got the banana ice cream which by the way has no artificial flavors and only natural ingredients. The service can be hit or miss, and the... read more

Great ice cream, very accommodating service giving many free tastes to help in the decision process. Everything an ice cream store should be. Lots of choices and great waffle cones. Located well so if you don't want to eat in, there's the beach right across the street1

We enjoyed ice cream here twice. It has a fun 50s feel and music. The ice cream cones and shakes are very good. If you don't get a cone, your ice cream comes in a glass dish. Your get the metal canister with your shake/malt. For small kids, they'll add jimmies and candy eyes to the ice cream scoop. Nice... More

Incredible ice cream selection, friendly staff, and a perfectly quaint building. It is an incredible institution on Anna Maria Island. It is a little tight on seating, but it is fantastic. Definitely go there for a hearty dessert!

The line was long but the ice cream was so worth it. They had many choices, tons of sundaes, a few sandwiches and pizza. We just ate ice cream. Definitely recommend.
