The service was friendly. Very helpful young man scooping up the ice cream who gave us good advice on local restaurants and attractions. The ice cream was OK, but not as good as we had hoped. Plus it was fairly expensive for what it was.

Strachan's has two locations the first is on Tampa Rd and Alt 19. It was nice to find a really good homemade ice cream place. Not as good as what Larry's was but he ain't around any more so I guess Strachan's is my favorite by default - still worth the trip. The second location is in downtown Dunedin. GREAT... More

Ive been here a few times & its always been great. The ice cream is delicious. If you go you have to try the "Boston Shake" thats the best. Love the banana flavor made with a real banana. Ill definitely be going back again.

Some of the best ice cream you will ever eat. But if you get a chance take home their carrot cake. You can't go wrong with it. Strachans will not disappoint.

This long time yummy emporium is still a quality act but it has become a lot more expensive recently by the slice and cash only continues. This has caused me to limit my visits and downgrade the experience although they will not miss my orders.

Strachans ice cream is the best - hands down!! It is a bit expensive but worth the occasional treat. When they have their "carrot cake" you simply must try it!! Two locations and both are amazing!!

You just can't beat the freshness and taste of the ice cream at Strachan's. They have a great variety of flavors and their waffle cones are awesome. The often have 2 for 1 coupons in local papers so that's a real bargain. It's a real treat to go to Strachan's!

Stopped on a recommendation from a local waitress and was very happy with our visit. The sundae was two scoops with two sauces, whipped cream and nuts. The cone we tried was Cherry wow and it had walnuts and chocolate chips. The smurf looked interesting. The price was fairly steep but the quality was good and service fast.

You can tell a good ice cream with a first taste. True homemade in the Dunedin shop, it is soo creamy and a taste you cannot get in a supermarket. Great flavors, my favorite Coffee with cookie cream or the Cherry Wowza. Can be pricey for the great quality, but BOGO coupons are plentiful. Save over $6 for two huge... More
