There is an advantage to the long lines.

The long lines give you time to browse ALL the home made flavors and toppings and choose whatever your heart desires. (They also have sugar free.) Super casual and friendly with lots of drippy sticky happy little (and big) kids. Cafe tables inside, picnic tables out front.

Have gone to Love Boat for several years ~ very large selection and very creamy, good ice cream, and not like regular chain ice cream stores

We walk in and they know what we want. Awesome ice cream and they're friendly! They have home made ice cream made in the tiny building. They have unique flavors too! Like Mae bacon ice cream

We always go to Love Boat Ice Cream since having our second home in Ft. Myers. Sometimes there are lines out the door. They have excellent ice cream but I noticed the last 2 times we were there the ice cream cone portions were quite small. My kids were very disappointed since in the past the cone portions were amazing.... More

This is a family owned business that is NOT fancy but doesn't need to be! The ice cream is fresh and home made...with no preservatives (I am allergic to them and would know). This stuff is FANTASTIC,

Surprised the kids and wife and took them here on a rainy summer day! The service was great, I think we sampled half the options between all of us. The ice cream was delicious. Creamy, fresh and with quality ingredients.

I have been and it is delicious. But a little expensive. I would suggest it for people who don't like soft-served ice cream.

over 60 homemade flavors to choose from with endless combinations. Even Gluten free / dairy free options for my daughter with major food allergy issues and Celiac Disease. We've come here every year on vacation and love it! HUGE portion sizes so we always get the small or child portion and its still way more than enough!

There are lines out the door, but the lines move quickly for the locally produced ice cream flavors at Love Boat. There are quirky names and delicious flavors. Bring a pennant from your local school when you visit.

This is undoubtedly the best ice cream in the county and likely the region. Everything is made on the premises and the options in terms of flavors is quite extensive. The ice cream is of very high quality and it is a serious problem trying to narrow down my choices each time I visit. I literally never have had a... More
