Rich and creamy

A Fort Myers Beach icon. All homemade and the scoops are generous. Very efficient system for waiting on customers quickly. Lines are long during season but well worth the wait.

this is our favorite ice cream parlor. went there last night and the decisions are very hard to make but i settled on the jamoca almond fudge...it is always good the portions are enormous. a small cone has 3 large scoops on it. they even offer a cup so you can put some of it in before it falls off.

Best ice cream right next to our campground. This is real ice cream with real flavors. Choices are endless. Tons of decisions. But just ice cream no lunch menu here. Would definitely recommend if in the area and would visit again.

An under-advertised ice cream bar, we found this by chance when grocery shopping at Jerry's. In our 7 days stay on Sanibel, we came here 5 times. Each time we each had 3-4 different flavours and it was an agonising choice. The range offered is enormous, including fat free, sugar free and frozen yogurts. The service was friendly and efficient... More

Worth the short drive from Ft. Myers Beach. Lots of flavors and unique cones. I had black cherry and my wife had rocky road. Both excellent.

OMG.. The ice cream is delicious. It is very creamy and evry flavor is very distinctive of each other. My favorites are banana, egg nog, and rum raison. It is reasonable and a great family outing.

I have been going to Love Boat since I was a child. They brought in a Pac Man video game and all the neighbor kids would come after school and play Pac Man and enjoy ice cream

What a wonderful ice cream only shop. All flavors are homemade with real chunks of ample goodies. I always ask my server what their favorite flavor is and then try that! You won't go wrong!!!

My friend and I stopped here based on good reviews. The ice cream was good, but my friend's ice cream had some peanut butter type ice cream in her sherbet. Granted they were side by side in the case and this could happen very easily. But with a severe peanut allergy, maybe they should not be side by side, she... More
