Big Olaf on Siesta Key is the perfect evening treat! After the sunset, stroll down to the village and get a scoop of your favorite flavor (loved the chocolate peanut butter). It's cash only though, so make sure you have at least $5 on you. ;)

Yum. What else can you say than yum. Their ice cream is so amazing, seriously, don't get too much because you'll eat it ALL and then feel horrible! Great service, even though it's always busy, then sit outside and watch the cars and folks walking by. We got fudge last time also, and it was good. But the ice cream... More

I think I visited 4 times, and all 4 times, I had the cinnamon bun ice cream. I dreamed about it. Nothing but ridiculous! Ridiculously delicious!

I came during an off time during the week as the lines are very, long during peak hours. Wanted to see what all the fuss was about and decided to give it a try. The young woman behind the counter was a little unhelpful and I was the only one in there. There are many flavors and I sampled the... More

... because then I am going to have to wait in line behind you too! Seriously, their ice cream is outstanding. They have many great flavors. The fact that there is almost always a lie out the door is no fluke - it is that good!

Found my new favorite flavor - White chocolate/Raspberry. It even has little dark chocolate raspberry filled candies whipped in. So good and so many flavors to choose from. They even have several flavors of fudge. Reminder - Cash only

There is a reason they have a line out the door for a reason. The inside smells fantastic from the cones. I highly recommend the butter pecan.

ATM is inside and the lines are well worth the wait for this great masterpiece making of ice cream. Yes it is kind of cramped, but there is never a night where it is not busy and is a local spot for many.

I didn't even get ice cream from this location because it was pricey and they didn't accept credit cards. It is the 21st century really? I don't want to have to pay extra money in fees. Went to the other ice cream parlor which was ranked higher than this one and it was worth it. Lost a customer.
