Tried Love Boat's shop on Sanibel. I thought it was the best ice cream on the island. They had an amazing whopper malt ball ice cream and an great key lime pie flavor. Definitely a must see on Sanibel.

A little costly, no atmosphere, and always crowded, but I love the ice cream. Too hot to eat outside, and have had to share a table, but Mom is tickled when we go.

The creamy goodness of this ice cream is unforgettable. Lines may be long but it well worth the wait. The pennant decorations help to distract from the wait. Making the all important flavor decision will also take some time.

They only serve ice cream and the flavors are all very good. The ice cream is made on site and a little high in price, but it is worth it.

We had chocolate peanut butter and Heath bar. Both delicious. Pistachio was also delicious as well as chocolate raspberry and coconut. Ice cream is very creamy and flavors were excellent. You definitely need to hit Love Boat.

Very busy most afternoons and nights and especially in hot weather. Probably Monday night may be slowest. You could call them and ask.
