Always packed and the reason is great ice cream in a hot location. Friendly staff always helpful. Plenty of choices for the ice cream fan.

I'm an ice cream junkie and this is some of the best I have had. Being from the Northeast, I'm partial to Ben & Jerrys, but this is just as good, if not better. Small size is generous. Long lines, but worth it.

On a rainy day in Siesta Key we stopped by Big Olaf for a couple of cones . The salted caramel pretzel on a sugar cone was absolutely delicious .

Called BIG for a reason, the ice creams were amazing and massive. On the Main Street in siesta keys and very popular - for a reason. We loved it

GIANT ice cream cones of creamy goodness! The line gets VERY long later in the day so go early to beat it! It's worth skipping dinner and just having dessert!

We went here for ice cream, at the suggestion of our waitress at the Cottage restaurant. The line was out the door, but they moved very, very fast, and have to say it was well worth it. The portions are big, I couldn't even finish a small cup. Maybe order a kiddie cup if possible in the future, or share... More

This place won't disappoint. The line may be out the door but it moves fast and is worth the wait. There are so many flavors to choose from. I had chocolate peanut butter and it was amazing.

We had ice cream and took fudge to go. It was very good! It is worth the wait in line ( which seems to move along quickly anyways).
