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

Incredible high quality home made ice cream. The kids loved blue moon. The staff were so patient with our kids. They let them try a ton of flavors.

I was not going to order, until the server stated she could get a new tub that had not been scooped out of. I ordered a coconut and pinnacle cream, ice cream it was very good. Small in a cup $3.81. They stated there was not a problem with cross-contamination.

Some many flavours of ice cream hard to choose. It is quite expensive but you don't need alot. Kids with eyes bigger than their bellies ordered two scoops and couldn't finish them. Plenty of parking, great place to stop after some time on the beach.

As we were staying on the key decided to pop in one afternoon, it was pretty busy and since there is loads to choose from took us a while to decide. The peanut butter sundae was amazing would thoroughly recommend. We also managed to get parked on site too so that was a bonus.

On a blistering hot day there is some that rivals...nay beats an ice cold beer...a really good ice cream. Joe's has multiple options and at least one will tickle your tastebuds. We opted for the Cashew Caramel Sunda, the Hot Fudge Sunday and the Rasberry and Choclate cone....3 happy people, lots of satisfaction. Server was very efficient and smily...my fave... More

If you go anywhere on the island you HAVE to stop by Joe's for a good shake. Best milkshakes ever. They have many flavors and they cater to all types of people (gluten free, lactose free, etc.) Really nice ice cream shop!

Every flavour you can think of served in a waffle cone or tub ... the boys loved them (I had to have one just to ensure they were as good as they said ... you understand! !!)

We just stopped in for ice cream. The guy with the British accent who helped me was very nice and let me try a few flavors to see what I liked. The young lady that helped my husband had long dark hair in a braid. She seemed put out when my husband wanted to try a flavor he wasn't sure... More
