“Heaven on a cone”

Ritter's Frozen Custard
Ranked #3 of 13 Dessert in Port Orange
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 21, 2011

We were sent out of our way to check this place out, by the nice folks at Sailing Winsome charters-they have not sent us to bad food yet! I love that this place is unchanged, you still just walk up and order through the window. We had ice cream/custard, although they do serve food, we only went for ice cream. We have tried Cow LIcks too, by the same referrals, and it's good there, but it's different. We both liked the atmosphere here better at Ritter;s, it's not so touristy as Cow Licks on the A!A. This place has essentially a park of out door seating and tons of parking. We each just had an iced cream cone, and stopped for ice cream 4 of our 5 day visit. Kudos to Port Orange for keeping something authentic like this around, and to the Ritter's for not fixing what works by trying to make it flashy and new! Keep churning that custard. If you are in Daytona, go out of your way and give Ritter's a try. It's unique enough to make the extra trip far worth it.

Nice place and good custard, but I like cow licks on Daytona Beach better, although it isn't custard.

Great frozen custard, don't know why they bother with the food, not what I'm here for. Best place in Port Orange to go after a kids soccer or baseball game

Ritters is all about quality. It is easily my favorite Ice Cream place! The vanilla -yes, plain vanilla- is to die for. Now imagine how good everything else is! The fudge topping is amazine. They have a dog's night out once a month- i think this is the cutest idea ever. (The only unfortunate thing is that after that event- the scrubs stink of some serious pee-pee - note to managment :)

Having lost our hometown Ritter's and another one 22 miles away, we have missed their delicious "ice cream". When we saw that Port Orange had a Ritter's, we punched it into our Garmin and voila' we had directions.

It is as good as we remembered and was definitely worth the short extra drive from the main drag in Daytona.

If you are in the Daytona Beach area and have never enjoyed Ritter's or if you have had Ritter's you know how good it is, you really should make the short drive. Keep in mind, this Ritter's like most of them, has only outdoor seating.
