Patrons stand in line, but there are many employees taking orders, so the line moves along. Many flavors of delicious, creamy ice cream. A perfect end to an evening on Siesta Key.
If you ever meet somebody from Sarasota, they will always rant and rave about this particular establishment. I believe there is another one in St. Armonds Circle. The ice cream is incredibly rich and I'm shocked at the amount of people that can get a large bowl of it and eat it like nothing. I've had like 5 of their... More
We have been going to Siesta Key once a year and the first place I want to hit as soon as I get there is Big Olaf's. Their ice cream is to die for - creamy, delicious, large, sumptuous! I always get a cone of Chocolate Mint Chip. They have a large number of flavors, many ways to serve it,... More
More selections of ice cream, ice cream cones, and fudge than you could ever imagine. Being a pumpkin lover and November, I couldn't resist the pumpkin ice cream. It was delicious, creamy, rich flavored. Couldn't have been any better. My grandsons both had Superman ice cream. They seemed to be leaping with a "higher bound" after tasting it. Everyone enjoyed...

We decided to see what the Clamor is about. Odered Heath Bar Toffee Ice Cream. Not on espec of Heath Bar anywhere to be savored, disappointing. I found the fact that "Homemade" Ince Cream is in quotes disconcerting. Does this mean it is homemade or it is like homemade? Not sure.
I love ice cream and they have many options including cone options. Of course you are paying for the location and more along the price of StoneCold product. But just in case you forget cash, they conveniently have an ATM on the side of the counter. I think I know how they make a couple extra $s in this debit... More
It's pricey but every flavor is great! We all sorts of ice cream in our group. we had different cones and waffle cones as well as in cups. I would have gone more but it was expensive.
We always make a stop or 2 or 3 at Big Olaf when we are on Siesta Key and out for a walk. Their fudge looks good to but have not tried. My husband has tried various flavors, most recently, blueberry cheesecake and trashcan and loved both. I am a Mint chocolate chip lover...yum!
Big Olaf's.....Great ice cream,!! Super ice cream shoppe.....pick your flavor and start enjoying every single bit! Don't walk....RUN to this place. You won't be sorry!
Although there is a strong consensus that Big Olaf's is unique, a recent visit was a disappointment. We ate only ice cream, and the ice cream was more than acceptable, and very fairly priced, but we did not feel that the flavor was anything special. WE will visit again, but cannot share in the high praise the place receives in... More
