The 2 girls Elizabeth and Angelina were the most sweetest people. As we sat here and ate our ice cream, they complimemted something on everyone with a genuine smile. They asked how you were doing and engaged in very friendly conversation while scooping your ice...cream. You are very lucky to have found these girls to work for you. The ice cream was amazing, you can tell the difference between 31 flavors and this place. Homemade and veey awesome.More

Amazing ice cream! Very friendly staff & fresh homemade ice cream. They were very quick with service. They do get busy but doesn’t take long to get ice cream.

Went two times during our visit. Great flavors of ice cream, busy but line moves very quickly so don't be deterred. Good portions. Will be back.

We loved visiting Abel's on our way to Siesta Key. Superb ice cream--and many flavor's from which to choose. In addition, the owner seemed to really focus on customer satisfaction. It made us feel so welcomed!

Seriously, Abel's has the best ice cream, hands down. I've been eating ice cream for over 50 years and have tried the ice cream from all over the country. Abel's is amazing, make sure you stop if you're in the area, you will be so...glad you did!More

Unbelievably good ice cream, fresh ingredients and dozens of flavors including rare choices like "Rum Raison". So delicious. Perfect ending to a day at the beach or pool. Enthusiastic staff greet you when you enter the store and suggest flavors. Awesome ice cream parlor.

My wife and I stayed In Siesta Key the week of Thanksgiving, and after dinner one evening, we noticed Abel’s ice cream so we decided to visit. The ice cream was delicious! They also allow you to try flavors. They have waffle cones, cups the...usual. They also give a card and stamp it for each ice cream you get. I believe after the 10th ice cream, you get a free one. We visited the next two nights, and had the last night not been Thanksgiving, we would have visited three nights in a row (they were closed on Thanksgiving).More
