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.

I found the Ice Cream at Big Olafs just of average taste that you can get anywhere else or even at your local grocery store, I did like their cone choice and they tasted good. It's a small Creamery with limited space and tends to get crowded.

Great ice cream and friendly service. Line is always out the door and benches out front are full of folks with ice cream dripping down their hands to their elbows.

Homemade ice cream with a number of flavors to choose from. Little indoor seating, but there was some.

This place turned me off from the start. There was a small sign listing the flavors with no descriptions or explanations. We had to wait for the family in front of us to finish ordering and step away from the counter before we could see the actual flavors and descriptions. However, as soon as we walked up to the counter,... More

I will start by saying I love ice cream, and I always try the ice cream wherever we travel. This place was by far the best ice cream I have ever had. I tried the snickers and the mint oreo. Both had huge chunks of cookie/candy and the ice cream was creamy. The homemade cones were DELICIOUS. We came here... More

Beware... CASH ONLY.. how convenient there's an atm inside. Nerve to charge $7 a cone when you have a family of several people. There nothing more to say $$..not worth the stop.

We had Big Olaf Ice Cream and walked to the beach to watch the sunset. I thought that it was overpriced for the ice cream. It is a very popular establishment.

Always busy and sometimes had queues out of the shop. Good selection of ice cream, my only criticism was that some were very sweet.

Homemade ice cream is supposed to have a rich flavor. This is definitly not one of my favorite places. It was fine for a hot day however will search for something else on next visit.
