So many flavors! Such good ice cream! parking was a bit of a hassle when it was busy/full, definitely worth it though. The murals outside were too cute!!

“Now THIS is what I call great ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

From the outside, the Love Boat does not look very attractive. From the inside, it does not look very attractive. But once we set our eyes on the huuuge selection of homemade ice cream (and on the incredibly low prices) we changed our minds ;-) All flavors are really tasty and they are extremely generous when it comes to portion sizes.

Outdoor seating is comfortable and great for kids too. We love the Love Boat!

“WOW! BEST ICE CREAM EVER!! HAAGEN-DAZS...WATCH OUT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Who would've thought this little shack would have the best homemade ice cream? This is the best ice cream that I've ever tried and would go back there again and again. It is better than Blue Bell or Haagen-Dazs and it is made there. People, please make it a point to eat ice cream here. You will not be disappointed!

“Try it once”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Love Boat has flavors for every ice cream enthusiast. I come from a large family and each member has their own favorite, but we agree that each flavor is excellent. Go in and ask for a sample tasting to find your favorite.

“Yummy even on a diet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Love Boat is well known for its super-delicious full fat ice cream. However, now on a diet, I expected to be deprived. However, I found that they have no sugar, no fat selections (I got the butter pecan)--I thought it would be a real loser--but NO. Granted, not the regular, but delicious and well worth eating nonetheless. Just YUMMY!
