Awesome little place that’s been here since the 50’s! Super cute! Great shakes and cones, plus on the side is a little counter with like 8 stools to eat inside. Or there are picnic tables outside! Enjoy!

2 medium and 1 small shake..$ 14.70. Pretty pricey. I got a small hot fudge shake that was more like vanilla. No smiles or thank yous from the workers.

When we visit Bradenton, we always make a stop at Shake Pit. Their hard ice cream floats and sundaes are favorites of ours, and they never disappointing. They also have great food, if you need a small meal with your ice cream!

Can't help you with the menu... Lines have been long since 1973 and when I worked the "window" it was cash. Line will be long, especially in season, on weekends, during Hurricane season! good beach food...

Prices change, it may be easier to not publish and not have to update after every little change. Just my own opinion.
