My husband and I wanted to try their ice cream. It was fantastic! They make it right there. We had the chocolate cherry. Made us think of Traverse City~Cherry Capitol. Very reasonable too.

Stopped here while walking along Bradenton Beach on a warm, sunny day. The exterior (particularly the stairs) was a little on the rough side... I was scared I was going to go through! Thankfully I didn't. Wonderful selection of flavours and a lot of different sundae combinations (made with their home-made ice cream). The tables were a little soiled from... More

Don't go here. Ice cream is slimey and wet. The place is dirty and bathroom is deplorable. Horrible owner and he thinks everyone is parking there to go to beach. He will tow you even if you get ice cream there.

Love going to joes eats and sweets for ice cream. Love in town, but the drive is worth the ice cream. Made in house and it is apparent when you taste it.

Way overpriced and the ice cream wasn't good. Left disappointed, and I love ice cream. Makes me sad just writing bad ice cream.

The employees were super friendly, and the ice cream delicious! Plenty of room to sit inside and enjoy the street view.

Not quite sure why this place gets 4 stars. The place is a mess, scruffy, tables were dirty and needed clearing despite 2 staff in and hardly any customers in. Staff seemed half asleep and lazy to me, milkshake was nice but would expect better at 6.99. Fridges seem old and full of condensation on one which suggests it is... More

We had to make multiple visits during our stay. The Mocha with raspberry drizzle is my new favorite! The raspberry malt is to die for. We have new cravings! This place is a must stop if you are an ice cream lover! They make their own ice cream here. Yummm. They also have fudge, frozen yogurt, slushies, gluten free, sugar... More
