“The ice-cream, gelato, and sorbet were...”
Reviewed August 11, 2010

The ice-cream, gelato, and sorbet were all very good and tasty. The portions seemed small and costly. A good atmosphere, perfect place for a date.

“Totally Rude Servers - Went Once -- Never Again”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

We visit St. Pete's Beach every year and this year decided to try Larry's Ice Cream Parlour. Myself, my husband, and granddaughter went to the counter to place our order, the young server was so rude, it was unbelievable. She was not helpful and made us feel like we were wasting her time. Once we placed our order, and stood to the side to wait for the ice cream, another lady went to the counter and asked about the price of the ice cream cones, the same server was just as abrupt with her. Then she actually turned around and rolled her eyes to a co-worker, nodding towards the lady at the counter. I was abosolutely mortified for the poor lady at the counter. Rude Service negates anything that was good about this establishment. I f this business want's to succeed, they need to clean house and hire people who are at least courteous to the customers.

“Great ice cream - we aren't local and the service was great”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

The ice cream was so good. I was sad to only make it there once. I liked the caramel caribou. I liked how the shop was set up. The service was good. They had no problem when I asked to try the peach ice cream.

“Great ice cream and gelato, rude service.”
Reviewed April 17, 2010

They have a large variety of products - more so than most ice cream places. The mango and raspberry sorbetto (gelato/sorbet mix) were excellent. We went there three times during our stay and the first time we were served by high school students who did a great job in greeting us and taking our order. The second and third times we were coldly treated by the adults and felt like we were in their way while supply orders were being taken/given and the soap opera blasted in the background.

“Absolutely the best ice cream ever”
Reviewed October 1, 2009

Larry's has the best ice cream we've ever had.
Unfortunately, the staff are not the most pleasant people, which I see others have noticed as well. How can you be grumpy working in an ice cream shop ??
The ice cream rates 5 stars....the customer services rates 3 stars.
