First things first if you have a sweet tooth like I do the smell alone of homemade waffle cones, cake and pie will definitely get your taste buds drooling simply by walking through the door. Be prepared to take a while to decide what you want since there are so many choices! Everything from gelato to ice cream and old... More

It just needs a good cleaning and I'd be okay with this place. Its been here forever and it should be top notch. Prices are mid to average for ice cream and sundaes, not a lot of seating. The ice cream is good but the place itself needs a good cleaning and updating.

Honestly, best ice cream I've ever eaten! The line to get in was long but moved quickly and was definitely worth the wait. I would go back every night if I could! Don't miss this gem.

By the looks of it, Larry's Ice Cream has survived all the Florida storms over the past 50 years. Nothing to look at, little parking, and crowed inside, but the line is out the door and the ice cream and gelato make it the reason for everyone to keep coming back for more. It's the type of place you can... More

The selections were ample with a few open stalls. the gelato is very good but be prepared for the cost. It was a... More

Their Reese's ice cream was so good, all of us had to have some. Their mint chocolate ice cream was good as well as their German Chocolate Cake ice cream.
