My wife and I were in the area and stopped here for some homemade ice cream. It was great! We both enjoyed our ice cream and will come back here again next time we are in the area.

Unfortunately, we went to A Better Scoop for our treat. The clerk behind the counter at 8:30 pm should consider another line of work. We found her rude, stone face and bad for your business. She should not be dealing with paying customers, or for...that matter, customers in general.More

Oh no! We are sorry you received that impression. It was her first night and a busy one too. Come back in two weeks and give her another shot. If she doesn't make you smile I will buy your ice cream. Speaking of....how was it?...More

My second visit here and as good as always. The 2 Grandkids didn't the rainbow sherbert, but didn't have a problem sharing Paw Paws scoop of peach and the better halfs Almond Joy. Both are excellent!

It's easy to find. The ice cream is delicious. The only issue is what flavor to choose because they are all good.

We’ve Eaten a lot of ice cream, and this place was off the charts. The toasted coconut and salted caramel were amazing! They even have gluten free cones (small cake cones, but a rare find.)

Our first time for ice cream here. It was early Sunday afternoon and only one employee was serving and we had a longer wait than expected. Could have used two employees as it was busy. Very good variety of ice cream to choose from and...you can get cones, sundaes, blizzards, etc. little pricey, but it’s Florida and vacation area.More
