They have 3 cold displays with about 70 flavours, I think, being out of season, there was too much selection for their level of trade. So the ice cream i chose tasted a bit stale, like it had been in the open too long. Its about a five minute walk to the beach from the shop.

I love everything about Larry's from the quality, to the variety, to the friendly staff. There is a lot of turnover here so the ice cream is not sitting around. There are unique flavors of ice cream as well as cakes and pies. This is a place to visit on your trip to the area for sure!

I don't often ask my phone for recommendations, but when I do it's invariably for the "nearest coffee shop." When I'm truly desperate for a treat, I beg for the "nearest ice cream shop." Larry's to the rescue. The selection is overwhelming, the flavors amazing, and the portions large enough for leftovers.

I love anything coffee-ish, chocolate and with nuts. Their Mountain Mocha was great and the waffle cone was very fresh.

We popped in here with friends a couple of weeks ago, but the ice cream didn't really take our fancy. One of us ordered ice cream, but it took forever as the server kept pestering him if he wanted something different. In the end he declined it all and said he just wanted chocolate ice cream. I ordered a Tijuana... More

Great ice cream! I had the coffee and butter pecan on a chocolate dipped waffle dish. Holy mackerel! Ate it all too. Staff were very friendly. Water cooler on the side to help yourself with water too. Not cheap but worth it!

I'm a Local here on St. Pete beach, and used to go to Larrys regularly with friends since they are the only people around who carry superman...usually a cone with a double scoop was around $4.00-4.50 which was already relatively pricey but for the most part worth it. However after a couple months of not going we recently went and... More
