If you need that ice cream fix this is the place to be. Nice selection of ice cream flavors. Also specialty sundaes and more. We visited twice in one week. The top of our list for ice cream the next time in the area.

We are from Cincinnati, and are completely spoiled by Graeter's ice cream, which is THE best ice cream in the US, totally cream based. Tyler's tastes like water. I couldn't eat it. My husband and son had a single scoop each, and the price was over $8, which is way overpriced for the quality. They ate it because that was... More

Lots of great ice cream joints in the area, with this one next to a pizza place that had no dessert offering. Should have been great, but simply did not deliver.

Hands down this is the best ice creamery in the Manatee/Sarasota area. It's perfectly located to serve as dessert after a sunset walk on the beach, right on Cortez road!

We stopped here twice for ice cream after spending the day at the beach. The ice cream is fabulous! Will definitely go back the next time that we are in the area.

We never miss an opportunity to stop at Tyler's for the best ice cream in town when visiting AMI. Simply put, this place is family friendly ice cream at it's best. You won't be sorry!

Been coming to Longboat Key for eight years and had our first visit to Tyler's just found out what we had been missing all these years. The ice cream is delicious and the flavour choice is great the only difficulty is choosing your favourite flavour. The waffle bowl is full of the ice cream of your choice and was great... More
