Nothing better

If your taste buds crave some ice cream then this is the place for you. Made on site and served up by a fast, efficient staff. So many flavors. Cones, sundaes, banana spits and so on.

To be quite honest, in the age in which vendors are peddling ice cream that seems a tad more expensive than your mom and pops' scoops, you expect good quality and quantity. Love Boat delivers both. Being a Florida resident all my life almost makes it cliché to finally write a review about this place…perhaps the fact that I didn't... More

My family frequents here! My personal favorite is the Key Lime ice cream! I have been here when the line was around the building and also when i was the only one in there! Either way its always worth the wait! A MUST VISIT when you are in town.

Bacon Caramel Swirl!!! Plus tons of other great homemade favors. Definitely a place we take everyone who comes down here to visit to. Dirty Turtle is my second favorite.

Hm, this ice cream is simply amazing. And the variety to choose from, unbelivable .... the whole family had many many flavors and all were really good, incl. The sugar and fatfree ones.

We were staying in Ft Myers Beach & wanted to find a good ice cream place on the island when I stumbled on the reviews for Love Boat. We debated whether to go there and almost turned around. I am so glad we didn't because this place was amazing! We are all chocolate lovers & it was hard to decide... More

We have visited this three times in the past month. You must go here if you are anywhere near Fort Myers Beach. It is usually packed which is a good sign. They are ready though as they always have plenty of nice employees to dip your ice cream. It is family-owned and the ice cream is made on site with... More

Found this place from a recommendation of a server at the restaurant we ate dinner at. All I have to say is "fantastic". Everything we ordered was out of this world. It is so refreshing to see there are still places that make homemade things. There are so many unique flavors, it's had to choose from. Not to worry, they... More

There's not much to say that hasn't already been written. Absolutely the best ice cream I have ever had. There is always a line, but it moves quickly. Since we discovered Love Boat we go there almost weekly. They must put something addictive in it...
