Hidden in the Dr. Phillips area. This restaurant is a nice surprise. The owners are there and they meet and greet you as you enter their establishment. Nobody is in a rush. Service is excellent food is outstanding what a nice nice place to go and have a relaxing lunch or dinner. They also have brunch on Sunday's don't miss... More

We visited Private Island one sunny afternoon. It is opposite Gatorland and difficult to see from the road BUT it is worth the drive from anywhere. My daughter wanted Nutella, Oreo and Gummi Bear ice cream...all made in front of her and frozen before our eyes. I went for a more normal combination as did my husband...all were delicious and...

Absolutely delicious ice cream. I got chocolate caramel sea salt and it hit every craving I had been having. I was 100% pleased with my ice cream, but the two others in my group thought theirs was just okay. It was a fun thing to go try and very cool to watch them create your ice cream from standard ingredients.... More

Small Shop Across from Gatorland. Good to sit and enjoy inside or outside of the shop. A map of where visitors have come from and games are found inside. Ice cream is all made to order from the cream to the product to eat. Over 25 add ins including not limited to Girl Scout cookies, pretzels, coconut, peanut butter cups,... More

Nitrogen blasted ice cream. The place whilst not particularly old was not the cleanest and already could do with a refurb. They were out of stock of quite a lot of items used to flavour the ice cream and to be honest the end result was not the best icecream by some way and not particularly good value either. Better...

When visiting Gatorland we took ten minutes out of our day to head over the road to Private Island Ice Cream, and we certainly were not disappointed. This has got to be the best ice cream we have ever tasted, I couldn't recommend it enough!

I read about this on Trip Advisor and we (my husband and I and our two teenage sons) decided to give it a go. Nothing to look at and very simply decorated inside - good games, Jenga, draughts etc to occupy kids while you wait - but but the ice-cream was amazing. Loads of toss-ins to choose from - can...

We have don't live in O town but have a new favorite when visiting. Cool little shop, kids had a blast and the ice cream was great. They keep it back yard simple and that is what made it an awesome experience. After being bombarded all week in tourist hell it was nice to find a laid back place like... More

As others have said, strange little place, very hot. But excellent home made ice cream, well explained and great flavours. Fairly slow to make each one, as it is by hand, so by the time the fourth ice cream was ready I had nearly finished. Best Coffee ice cream I have ever tasted. Worth the ride out there.
