Outdoor seating was Plentiful as were the servings! Many different names like "Trashcan" made the choosing fun! At the counter, the cone sizes were shown as were the flavor of cones! Never knew there were jimmies on the outside of a cone until today! Made for a fun stop for an early evening stroll! We were lucky to have found... More

Don't overlook this ice cream parlor. The cones are wicked good - and the ice cream is generous. All favors are delicious.

at a little under $6 for two scoops it was reasonable for home made ice cream. The scoops were quite large - more than enough for my husband and I to share

In the center of Siesta Village is the Big Olaf Ice Cream store. Its ice cream is known to be special and a treat for children of all ages. My wife ordered a cup with the vanilla raspberry ice cream which was nice and creamy rich with a full flavor of vanilla. The ice cream is smooth and rich. My... More

We had seen Big Olaf's when we first came to Siesta Key just after Christmas for our week vacation. We had visited some family nearby, later in the week, who recommended it, so we figured it was a little bit of karma and stopped in on New Years Eve. There was a significant line out the door, and were expecting... More

Big Olaf's always has a long line outside and rave reviews, but I don't know what all the fuss is about. I waited until our last night in Siesta Key for my "treat" - wish I had tried some of the other spots in town. The ice cream is ok - lots of great flavors but not very creamy. The... More

We went to get ice cream on a busy Friday night during the week after Christmas. There was a long line but it moved quickly. Olaf's was well-staffed and the servers were friendly and efficient. We ordered mint chocolate chip ice cream, coffee ice cream, rocky road ice cream, Kahlua chip ice cream, and chocolate frozen yogurt. We are all... More

Visited Big Olaf for ice cream and wasn't disappointed. The ice cream was good and all in the party enjoyed what they ordered. Typical vacation location pricing (rent on an island is probably not cheap) but good ice cream for what is about the norm for vacation ice cream.

We were excited to try Big Olaf's after reading all of the reviews. The service was great, but the ice cream was average.
