The choices, the flavors, the consistency of the ice cream---unmatched anywhere. If the line is snaking around the building, get in it and be patient. Things move at a pace you'll get used to.

Excellent Ice Cream-huge variety of flavors to choose from. There are sugar / fat free options, frozen yogurts, sorbets, sundaes, malts and shakes. My husband had the rum raisin and he loved it! I had the peach ice cream and it was excellent as well. We can't wait to go back again, the line was long, but the service was... More

Simply the best homemade hard ice cream with so many flavors it will be hard to pick one. The parking is tight but the drive way to the left of the building goes toadditional parking but is not clearly marked. If the line is out the door, don't worry as they move you through fairly quickly. My wife and I... More

This place had lots of flavours and the ice cream was really tasty! The only negative is that it's really expensive -- one small scoop for $3.50!

We stopped in at Love Boat ice cream on a whim and fell in love!. Their homemade ice cream is the best by far. So many options and all the flavors that we tried were absolutely wonderful! We will be back many more times

We found this shop by accident and went back several times while in Fort Myers. It is always busy, but the line goes fast and it is worth the wait! Delicious flavors of ice cream, shakes, sundaes - great home made treats!

Great ice cream. Many, many choices. Worth the wait as there are usually lineups. Lineups do move quickly!

Lots of wonderful flavors to choose from. I am a foodie and an ice cream snob and I give it 2 thumbs up! Besides my first job was making hot fudge sundaes, banana splits and scooping cones!

There is a huge variety of their homemade ice cream with options like sundaes & different cones to choose from. They also offer fat free & sugar free flavors. We tried a variety of their flavors.
