There's always a line starting in late afternoon and going until late evening. The ice cream is very good and they have a lot of flavors available. I recommend the Key Lime Pie.

After reading the reviews, I had high expectations! I love ice cream, and was looking forward to this treat! On arrival, the line was not too long. On entering, we were greeted by the staff who were curt, almost seemed like they didn't want to be there. Not a smile to be seen. The ice cream was decent. It was creamy, but similar to what you might purchase at the grocery. Not bad, but not outstanding. Location is everything, and they have it, I think this is what draws in the crowds. Given the choice, I'd pick Ciao Gelato or Sub Zero instead.

Pretty decent Ice cream here. Not the best I've tasted, but it was the best in Siesta Key. Line moved quick and we were able to sit at a table inside.
