Every time I visit Siesta Key I visit Olaf's. They have lots of hard ice cream flavors, soft serve for those prefer that, and several different choices of cones. They even have fudge! In my personal experience the line gets the longest at night, even if you go there right before they close at 10 pm. Expect the line to... More

Almost always crowded but worth the wait....excellent ice cream in a wide variety of favors. The added plus is that everyone is in a good mood when buying and consuming ice cream!

The ice cream is very good. Flavors you would expect. They do offer a few unique cones that are dipped on the bottom. Staff was friendly and the bench seating outside is nice to get out of the sun but still enjoy eating outside.

Line is always long but they move pretty fast, Ice cream is good, about what I would expect. I felt the price was high, and probably would try another place in the future.

Went with a group only to find a very long line. We were very surprise at how quickly the line move and the ice cream was well worth it. We also enjoyed watching all the different people while we at our tasty dessert. Dak Le and Naomi

The ice cream from Olaf's was absolutely amazing! We were slightly intimidated by the long line, but we also knew that was a good sign for delicious ice cream. To our surprise the line moved very quickly. We had dessert here 3 of the 7 nights we were in SK. Definitely a must stop!

So good we ate there both days we were there. The three of us tried different flavors each day and all selections we tried we great. They must be doing something right because there is always a line waiting to get in and order. Only takes about 5 min to wait, get served, pay and be outside enjoying your ice... More
