The ice cream is excellent with many choices, but the shop on San Carlos is quite small and the Lines are always long, in season, and the wait runs from 30 minutes to over an hour. Frustrating at best!

Great homemade ice cream that's made on site. Decadent! So many favors, difficult to make a decision. Young people scooping were patient and friendly. Wish they had a number system as people coming in behind us were served 1st. Sugar free available but did not try, maybe next time

Best home made ice cream I've found. Every flavor I've tried has been great. You get 2 scoops with the children's size cone and 4 scoops with the small. I couldn't believe it! They have a continuous flow of customers and at times crowds. It is very much worth the time to stop here and the quality of the ice... More

I have been coming to Love Boat when I'm on vacation in Fort Myers since the mid 1980"s and it has never disappointed me. Yes the parking is horrible and yes the line often stretches out the door but it is completely worth it! The portions are fairly large and the prices are reasonable. I have tried many flavors over...

Small place, limited parking. maybe 7 or 8 little tables inside. Nothing fancy on the decor. What you go there for Is the Ice Cream. Huge on the flavor... seriously good ice cream. We had the chocolate PB and the Grasshopper( basically mint ice cream and chocolate cookie). Both were excellent. The chocolate PB was so dense and thick it... More

Awesome! Cinnamon caramel pecan is amazing! Best ice cream I've had in a long time, and we had no line to wait in (granted it was a weekday) on a beautiful sunny afternoon.

I always love coming to this place, be ready for a long line, but worth the wait. Its mid-line pricey but well worth the value.

Driving by one evening I noticed loads of people waiting to go in, so the next day we checked it out for a mid-day snack! Luckily there was no crowd to contend with. Discovered they had lots of fabulous flavors to choose from and servings are good size. It was a little pricey, but worth it!

Had the "Dirty Turtle" and it was Amazing! Chocolate with melted sea salt caramel and nuts. I wanted to stay and have a little bit of every flavor.
