After a busy day of sitting in the sun, fishing, and shopping everyone was ready for a cool treat. They have several creamy flavors and any flavor that was ordered by the family met their craving expectations. Thank you for meeting the Crave.

This was our second trip to Matlacha Island but our first time to Great Licks Ice Cream. We had key lime and butter pecan flavors. Tasted great! They had outside tables for social distancing.

What, no cookie dough? Just kidding. Don’t remember what they didn’t have. All Hershey ice cream. Generous scoops. Pleasant young lady serving. On the water if you want to lick outside. I mean it’s an ice cream place, right? You get your scoops and get...out. No marble tables and spring water here. Ice cream yes, maybe a snack or two but no hot dogs or Taylor Pork Roll sandwiches. If ice cream is what you want, than ice cream is what you’ll get... with a smile. EnjoyMore

I love the taste of this ice cream, such great flavor. Mint chocolate chip is my favorite. Take a minute to go into Island Visions next door; great local art gallery with unique pieces.

Ate lunch at a local restaurant and saved some room for ice cream. A friend of mine that visits the island a lot told me I had to stop by. I had strawberry and my husband had the key lime pie. Both very good.

Excellent high quality ice cream. One large scoop on a waffle cone was $4 but we considered it worth it.
