“The best homemade ice cream in the area”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Excellent homemade ice cream with quite a few flavors including key lime pie with graham cracker in the ice cream and carrot cake ice cream with carrot cake throughout. Also the usual ice cream flavors. As mentioned in other reviews, the inside is not well kept and I would suggest you take your ice cream outside - even across the street to the beach. Service can be slow when busy. We showed up at 9:15pm and we waited 35 minutes to get ice cream as the line had ~20 ahead of us. But the ice cream is delicious.

They do provide lactose free and sugar free options but one of our party (who is diabetic) had sugar free ice cream and the next day his sugar levels were quite high so be careful if you are sensitive. We discussed this with management but they didn't seem particularly concerned as they maintain the ice cream is fully sugar free. Just be careful if you are sensitive.

“Best Homemade Ice-Cream Ever!!!!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Joe's Ice Cream is the most delicious ice cream I have ever eaten. The quality of this homemade ice-cream is nothing less than outstanding. They have a diverse range of traditional and unique to gourmet flavors and every possible ice-cream Sunday imaginable. The owners are wonderful people and their staff are friendly and sweet!! They provide consistent care in everything they do and are a gracious team. Moreover, Joe's is located in an enchanting, colorful building that's so friendly and right across the street from the beach. It's a community gem.

“Finally...”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Finally found a lactose free ice cream in AMI! The girls at the counter were knowledgeable and helpful with knowing which items were lactose free and even making sure that none of the scoops, spoons etc. touched anything with lactose. The place was kind of run down and dirty, but the ice cream hit the spot.
