Great place!

Having visited numerous times alone, this was my first time with my girlfriend and her kids. The ice cream was excellent and the service was outstanding.

This place rocks! The ice cream tastes really great. It's almost as good as my sister's - and that means it's yummmmmy!

I think the reviews are more for the view than the ice cream! It's delicious, don't get me wrong. A couple other local places give twice as many homemade scoops for nearly the same cost though. The Working Cow is a great one! Doesn't have the ocean view though.

Thank you so much for your review. We agree the view is pretty great, we love being located on Charlotte Harbor. And Working Cow “homemade” ice cream company does make great ice cream and has a huge list of flavors, but to be fair, they sell their ice cream to numerous Florida locations (including the one on Mackensie St.) as...

Harborwalk Scoop is a hidden treasurer, tucked behind a well known restaurant with a magnificent view with which to share your ice cream. They are thrilled about all the recent publicity after being there 3 years. Everything ice cream is available from cups or cones, to sundaes and shakes. What makes it most special is the homemade one-of-a-kind flavors. Too... More

Thank your for wonderful review. You are right; we are thrilled, honored and humbled about the TripAdvisor honor! And right again, we are hidden (we have actually been in business 5 years, that's how hidden we are :-) ) but we really wanted an ice cream shop with a beautiful view because Punta Gorda is such a beautiful town!

So thrilled to see that Harborwalk S&B was named #1. Always a fun place to go for a sweet treat. The owners are wonderful hosts and the decor is so beach and perfect for the location.

Thank you so much for the kind review. My wife Claudia gets all the credit for the "beachy" look. She is from Rio de Janeiro and loves all things colorful and everything about beach life! Thank you for supporting our little ice cream shop, we hope to see you again soon. Ron More

Friendly staff serve up delicious homemade ice cream. Not all the ice cream is homemade. Homemade flavors are clearly marked and staff offer to let customers taste prior to purchase. I decided immediately on rum raisin. Nicely decorated shop with chairs and tables outside so customers can enjoy the view of the marina and the harbor. Very nice!

I should not be writing this review because this ice cream shop is so good that when people find out about it, the lines will be long. There are many different ice creams from which to choose. There are even more that are in the back that you cannot see. The shop is difficult to locate, even when you are... More

We took our son to Harborwalk Scoops & Bites to celebrate potty training success. The ice cream was delicious and the staff was super nice. It has that old time ice cream shop feel. Definitely bringing the family back soon.

Teresa, how awesome that you and your family decided to celebrate with us on your son's momentous occasion! One of the things we like most about our little ice cream is that we get to be a small part of special occasions, friends connecting, and families enjoying time together.

Great new homemade flavors, but the management is a bit disorganized. I realize that the new publicity has increased the summer traffic, but as a regular in season customer, they are having trouble keeping up their great customer service. Out of cones? Out of vanilla? Out of chocolate? Out of OREO? Don't tease me with the empty bucket and sign... More
