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

One of our favorite spots to top off a trip to the beach to watch the sunset. Lots of flavors to choose from. Never disappoints.

We stopped in for scoops for four seniors. All were very good and the service was quick and friendly. Highly recommended.

Went for some icecream after a day on the beach. It was okay but a bit pricey. Nothing to write home about. They had a nice little lot you can sit at a table and enjoy some conversation.

Strachan's has two locations-downtown Dunedin and Palm Harbor. Both offer a lovely selection of homemade ice cream. Outdoor tables available. Both locations are in great proximity to the Pinellas Trail.

My kids love going here (they nicknamed it "the cow place") the ice cream is delicious but sometimes we go and they are really skimpy on the scoops. I've gotten a waffle cone with 1 scoop that barely fills the top. My mom has gotten a single scoop that was the same size and my son's kiddy cup. So, as... More

I brought my grandson here thinking I was going to get good old fashioned ice cream. Neither of us like it. Instead we got super sugary sweet sloppy ice cream. Not the nice hard style you can scoop up. I know this is a fan favorite for many but not for us. I tried the other location in Dunedin. That... More

MermaidKu- We are sorry to hear that your ice cream was a little too soft for your liking. These hot Florida days are rough on our homemade ice cream. Since we don't use any preservatives it stays rock hard in the freezer but as soon as the sun hits it... Gotta enjoy it fast! More

This is a local ice cream shop with the best homemade ice cream! Especially when they have banana chic chip!

I stop here often. Not only do they have the best homemade ice cream, but absolutely the best homemade cakes and pies around. When I am having a special dinner, or want to bring something nice to someone, I'll stop in for one of their scrumptious carrot cakes, brownies, coconut cake, key lime pie, or other wonderful dessert. They also... More
