Great flavors selection and well priced. Great location and benches to watch the town go by while you enjoy for ice cream!

I don't know who Big Olaf is, but he/they have the ice cream concept nailed. Don't be intimidated if there is a line. The efficiency of the staff is impressive. They will be serving you before you can make up your mind. They won't rush you however. Enjoy.

Tried the "trash can" (a mixture of a little bit of everything) and the toasted coconut. Both tasty and creamy. Would go again to try the other flavors. Service was friendly and fast.

One scoop is a big serving. They have many kinds of chocolate and who cares what else. But my wife says the butter pecan and pralines & cream are awesome.

Tried two soft serve and two traditional flavors. Every one was a solid offering. I travel by motorcycle, all over the country, and always stop for ice cream. Big Olaf is a top 1% offering.

A lot of ice cream flavors to choose from.. I decided to get the Trash Can, it had a little bit of everything and I loved it. Just got one scoop because the servings are pretty big. YUMM!

Super friendly. Delicious ice cream. generous portions. It is a little bit hard to find. Every one in our party enjoyed their flavors. It does seem a little pricey, about 5 dollars a person, but it's worth it for a nice treat. Lots of cute shops nearby too.

This has been a favorite stop for many years. Who doesn't like ice cream? Especially of the quality and delectability of Big Olaf's. This was the first place that I saw waffle cones, decades ago, which is a very popular choice. So many flavors and choices of cones. Its a very popular place and the lines are often long and...

Fantastic old fashioned ice cream available in a cone, cup, or a Big Ölaf waffle bowl. I tried the kaluha crunch and snickers flavors, both were extremely delectable. A family favorite for all ages!
