“Consistent Cold Stone Creamery Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Delicious ice cream mixed with your choice of candy, nuts, and or toppings is typical of this chain ice cream parlor. There is a nice area to sit outside and enjoy the island at this location. When we go to Marco Island we try to support the local economy as much as possible and as a result we have always gone to other ice cream places that are locally owned. We made an exception this time because our kids kept asking. So all I can say is it's what you would expect from Cold Stone, the only advantage is that it has a nice area to sit outside and enjoy the Island weather.

“Yummy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Consistently yummy in a lovely location but over priced for what you get. Other options exist at a much better value for a similar product.

“There are better ice cream parlors in Marco Island...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Too crowded--like sardines while you stood inside the doorway--not worth the price as there are better places for ice cream in Marco Island: Try Beebe's which yes, will be crowded but it's just better ice cream (homemade!).

“Not Up to Regular Cold Stone Standards”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

I'd give it a one, but to be a fair it was our servers first day on the job. However:

* my wife was given a "like it" size, instead of the "love it" that we ordered... when the server figured this out, she simply poured it into the "love it" bowl without adding anymore... then proceeded to charge us for a "love it".

* mixed in barely any of the ingredients that they were suppose to

* overcharged us.... $19 instead of $11.78... the worker seemed confused that two love it sizes shouldn't add up to $19...spent five minutes straightening that out with another worker (I'm assuming the manager) while my ice cream melted away.

It's never cheap, but Cold Stone is almost always a great treat. I 've been to five or six different ones across the country. This is by far the worst experience we had at one.

“Always good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The ice cream is always good and it is always busy. Maybe a little too busy. They could have definitely used another person working the night we were there and it showed -from the line out the door to the messy bathroom and the tables outside that could use a wipe-down.
