Rarely eat ice cream, but with the family visiting, it was the place to go. I must admit I was so pleased with my choice of coconut ice cream. Excellent! the cone it self was delicious.

Our server made a delicious and thick chocolate shake at our request (using chocolate ice cream thather than the vanilla custard they standardly use). Success! Worth the wait for her service (And the long line that preceded that!)

Stopped to get chocolate shake for my wife. Meh. I would suggest some place else. Price/performance was WAY below average.

Not overly impressed, but draws a good crowd and they have a lot of options to choose from. Maybe ask for shakes to not be made with the soft serve ice cream would be better.

Family owned, fresh ice cream, definitely the best around! There's two locations, one in Palm Harbor and one in downtown Dunedin (don't be surprised to find a long line), it's a very popular place. Great milkshakes!

Working in the area and was driving home when I saw the sign. Palm Harbor alt 19.. So I pulled in. OMG there's plenty of choices and it smelled great inside. She just got done making waffle cones. If you're driving by on a nice warm day I would definitely check this place out.

Ice Cream is always fresh and delish. Tried cream and corn - good. Love the coconut the best and the key lime pie.

Very consistent in quality and flavor! The ice cream is delicious and the desserts are too. Servings are large and service is good. This local business hires several local teens> I was very surprised when attending an award/scholarship program at the local high school to learn that this business offers a small scholarship award locally. I believe in buying local,... More
