We usually make several visits to Big Olaf and are never disappointed. This year weather was the best for enjoying ice cream but we still managed 2 visits!

If the product and service had been as entertaining as the sign outside--then we would have something. The staff was more interested in folks being in the right line etc and the actual business of customer service. Nothing special. But we will go back to see the sign outside!

This is a regular stop for us during our visits to Siesta Key. Plantation praline is my favorite, but will always try something new because they have such a great selection.

Good fresh ice cream with lots of choices. Very popular place and long lines are not unusual, especially on weekends.Many get their ice cream and sit/stand out front watching the sights in Siesta Key Village.

My daughter loves this place, we usually go once a day while we are visiting. There is usually a line but it moves fast.

Excellent ice cream and soda fountain creations. Single scoop is large enough to satisfy most appetites. Varieties of ice cream is extensive and changes with seasonal offerings. Good midday stop!

If you want some ice cream, check out Big Olaf ~ in the middle of the village. They have cones and amazing cups. The kid size is really big!
