Description: Ice cream with a view! Harborwalk Scoops & Bites is Punta Gorda's perfect gathering place for ice cream lovers, walkers, bicyclists, boaters and park-goers. We serve 40 flavors of homemade ice cream in cups, cones, shakes, malts, hot fudge sundaes and banana splits. Our ice cream shop is situated in downtown Punta Gorda on Charlotte Harbor with a glimmering view of Laishley Park's breathtaking marina.

At first, I was amused that the number 1 Trip Advisor "restaurant " in Punta Gorda was an ice cream shop! We had never been to this town, but decided to try this famous ice cream shop after dinner at a "locals" restaurant. We were cheerfully greeted by Ron, the owner, & encouraged to sample a flavor or two before making our decision. I got one of Ron's favorites, "Praline Peaches 'n Cream", & hubby got Cherry Vanilla. Both were creamy & delicious. We ate outside to enjoy the view. Although it was dark out, the view of the harbor under the moonlight was a pleasant one. We will only be in town for the weekend, but will definitely return tomorrow---to try another enticing flavor & enjoy the daytime harbor view!

We agree it's funny that our ice cream shop is rated as the number one restaurant in Punta Gorda, but at the same time we are humbled by your comments and as well as everyone else's. We are definitely a mom and pop operation and it makes both Claudia and me smile from ear to ear when we receive such positive feedback.
Thanks for taking the time to share your comments.

Great ice cream includes sugar free. Also a very intersting collection of vintage soda pops, not sugar free, for the nostalgic!

Thanks for noticing! We always have no sugar added dutch chocolate and no sugar added buttered pecan ice cream for customers who love ice cream but need to watch their sugar. And yes, the vintage sodas (in a bottle) have sugar cane but they sure are yummy and take you back in time!

Thank you for your review! We love our location too. Being directly on Charlotte Harbor overlooking Laishley Marina is a big hit with customers like yourself. And thanks for enjoying our vintage sodas. They have been a big hit!

If you are a diabetic and like chocolate ice cream, they have a no sugar added Dutch Chocolate that is out of this world. Combine that with a gorgeous view of the marina and Charlotte harbor along with very friendly service and you have an awesome spot to go out for an ice cream. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you for your wonderful review! We always try to accommodate our customers' desires and the no sugar added Dutch Chocolate has been a great addition to our 30 flavors of ice cream. The view, well we can't take credit for the beauty of Charlotte Harbor, but we sure agree it's gorgeous and a great place to enjoy an ice cream.

We just dropped in to cool off and ended up having a wonderful time with the owner and some locals. A great little "information" stop, have a cool drink or some ice cream.
