Not just ice cream but fudge too!

Great ice cream and Fudge! Don't let the long line fool you, because it was fast to get in and out! Friendly staff.

We strongly suggest people to come in during daytime. Yes, it's a long line to get an order but the ice cream is okay. The long line is about dinner time or late dinner dessert.

We went on a rainy Sunday afternoon and there was no wait to get served. The decor and restaurant went with Siesta Key's laid back beach vibe. They offered limited indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy your ice cream treats. The ice cream was very good and creamy. My family all enjoyed their selections and we would visit again.

Staple in the village. Lines are long for a reason. The ice cream is great. The staff very efficient at moving line through quickly. We go almost every night it is SO good.

ice cream is very good but while you're in line they want you to decide what flavor before you get anywhere near the counter. I like to see what I'm picking visually.

Perfect place to cool off on a hot night in Siesta Key. Get a cone and take a walk around town. The ice cream is very fresh and there are a ton of varieties to choose from.

We always visit Big Olaf's! Delicious, fresh ice cream and home made cones. Plenty of flavor to choose from. They carry great fudge and even have ice cream treats for your dog. Usually has a line out the door, but don't leave, they get you through fast.

The ice cream was great. The workers were friendly. The portions were generous. The line was out the door, but they were efficient.
