The Love Boat makes really great ice cream, the long lines are all the evidence you need that this place is popular with locals and tourists alike. Parking is terrible but if you go at off-peak times you'll have no trouble, and it's worth it anyway. My only complaint is that I wish they served the "Pelican Poop" (vanilla ice cream with pineapple, coconut, chocolate, and almonds) specialty ice cream that they make for Parrot Key restaurant. They only make it for Parrot Key and they don't sell it in the shop -- a huge wasted opportunity, in my opinion. I don't even care if they call it something else (in fact, I'd prefer it! ;-)) -- they just need to sell it. It's fabulous.
