“Best local ice cream shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have the advantage of living only a couple blocks away from this little jewel. Ever since going here a couple here's ago, I have been hooked! Just went here last night, and even though the place was absolutely swamped, I was in and out in two minutes! Great service, delicious hot fudge sundae! Please, do try to chocolate with peanut butter ice cream, it is fantastic!

“The best ever Ice cream in the States”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

So many flavors to choose. Choc Raspberry my favorite. Clean easy to find friendly. Some times you have to wait in line but it moves quickly and it is worth the wait

“Great ice cream!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have been going to the Love Boat for 20 years and it truly is a South Ft. Myers tradition. Over the years the place has been clean and not so clean and the workers very slow to snappy. I am happy to report on this visit the place was clean and the servers snappy and ready to serve. The ice cream? Perfect as always.

“Best ice cream I've had this trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Wow! At first I thought the prices were a bit high and then I saw how big the serving was. They have so many different flavors. It is nice that they have all the prices printed on a overhead board so that you do not have to look inside the case to see what flavors they have. The line moves very quickly and the staff is very efficient. The flavors are amazing, very intense and the ice cream itself is rich and creamy. Did I tell you how big the servings are?

We went yesterday and we were back today. I'm sure we'll be back again before we leave the area.

“The best, period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Family owned, fun little place with handmade ice cream. A bit out of the way, but once you have a bite you'll be glad you went. Check out the pennants on the walls and ceiling along with the old movie tin signs, and pictures from before and after Hurricane Charlie when this place was destroyed. (personal fave-malted milk ball with fudge ice cream)
