We've been hooked on Love Boat Ice Cream since the 70s It's really good. There are several home made ice cream shops in SWFL, we've tried them all, Love Boat is the best. They're always busy and there's often a long line and a pretty long wait,,,, but trust me it's worth the wait. We're in the area twice a... More

I really would recommend a visit to this ice cream parlour. Homemade ice cream in a variety of flavours. We tried mint choc chip, chocolate and chocolate with brownie batter. We had 3 x kids cones at $3 a go. I have to say that a double scoop in a cone was enough for kids and adults alike! Great friendly... More

I read the reviews and I though I was going for a treat,WRONG,below average Ice cream not cheap,and I wonder who is writing this reviews, what a disservice for the Tripadvisor and their followers, and for people like me and my family who travel 20 miles for a treat and found to be very disappointed.

We passed the Love Boat several times and always found the parking lot full. After reading a few reviews, we decided to stop. It was yummy. A huge variety of homemade ice creams. The parking lot was full, but they have plenty of people working...no waiting and sampled a few favors before making our decision. The servings are ample, my... More

You have to treat yourself and stop here at least once if you are in the area! A huge selection of homemade ice cream. The portions are huge! This place has been in the area since the 60's. It's not very big and does get really busy at times, but don't be discouraged by the long lines. They take orders... More

I'm not an ice cream lover at all but I simply love this place. Their ice cream is homemade and you can taste the quality of the product. In addition, certain flavors with stuff added to them for instance the chocolate peanut butter ice cream is loaded with peanut butter. Anytime we have company in town this place is a... More

The parking lot was packed when we pulled in, which we took for a good sign. Apparently EVERYONE wants to get some of this ice cream - and now we know why! :) It was, in a word, fabulous. There were a ton of flavors to choose from, with sampling available if you weren't sure what you wanted. I ended... More
