My fiancé Julie and I wandered in late, staff was welcoming. We were served promptly and just stood there chatted and devoured the Ice cream. Excellent experience!

We visit Able's every year. We love the ice cream and the location. We can get ice cream after a beach trip without standing in lines or looking for parking on the key. The owner is great and customer service is always the best. He...makes a point to chat with my kids every year.More

Have visited several times and never disappointed. I personally like anything that has coconut in it but everything I’ve had has been delicious and the service is great. I haven’t tried a waffle cone but they smell amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop by.

Stopped by after a day at Turtle Beach and had the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle in a dipped waffle cone! Was NOT disappointed!

Drove over from Village Walk for a break from isolation. Abel's ice cream is smooth and delish! Service was excellent too.

Just happened to find this place. Hadn't heard about it before. What a great find. Not only do they have a great selection of ice cream, all of the staff are just so friendly. They make you feel welcome the minute you come in the...door. They even give you a card that they stamp so that you can eventually get a free ice cream. Loved the Spumoni and the Chocolate Raspberry.More

No fancy made ice cream here. No pay for a bunch of stuff in a bowel that’s definitely not worth the cost here! My favorite place for ice cream. “Real” ice cream like back home in Ohio. Was so happy I found this place. We...have visited many many times. They offer other little sweets for purchase. Priced just right.More
