Decent little ice cream shop and a pretty good value. My wife and I just left here and I just have to question this; we got ice cream and a Anna Marie Island car sticker all for $9.00. A great deal. The petite blonde manager asked me if I was going to pay cash or credit. I said cash. I... More

Not that I encourage everyone to eat fat free/sugar free ice cream on vacation, but some people are diabetics or they just want something good without feeling too guilty about it. I had the salty caramel ice cream - great sweet and salty combination. Besides that the atmosphere was unique and enjoyable. Looking forward to going one more time before... More

Was looking for an ice cream treat to fix the cravings and we stumbled upon the Holy Cow Ice Cream Shop. The shop is so cute with a little area where they sell little tidbits, an area with chocolates, and then the ice cream station. They also had a cute area where you could play checkers and a black board.... More

The ice cream quality at Holy Cow is very good. Quite tasty. A slight bit overpriced, but they do give you a large serving. We made two visits to the shop, but left without ordering the second time because they had run out of chocolate ice cream, which was what we were wanting.

We used to go here after dinner out, or as it was opposite our condo just for the fun of it. The ice cream selection is good and tastes great

Obvoiously not wanting to be there! proceeded to order when she said no smoothies today I'm the only one here! She did nothing the whole time We were there. Sat down to a chalkboard of the most dirogatory words.... More

The young lady serving the ice cream is the only person in the shop. They not only sell ice cream but other touristy things. She does a great job for as many customers as she has a day!

Came here for some ice cream...it was excellent! The service was great. There are many different choices for flavors and toppings. They have both soft serve and hard ice cream. This would be a great place to bring friends or family! The only downfall is that it's located in the strip mall and not that close to the beach or... More

The ice cream is to die for! We stopped there in the evening and they were lowering the shades so the sea turtles would't be distracted by the lights I thought that was great! The owner also stopped traffic for us to back out of the parking lot, very thougtful!
