Stopped by for a dish of ice cream. It's not cheap but it is good and you'll get a big scoop. They don't offer a ton of flavors but they have some unusual choices. The seating area outside is nice.

This is a drive-in, walk to the window type of place. There is no inside seating but who needs it in Florida? Good selection of hand dipped or soft serve. Generous amount at a reasonable price. Would recommend.

The ice cream was very good but on the expensive side. $4.50-$5 for a small. The portions were generous but they don't offer a kids side for those of us wanting less than an "large" small portion. They also have a very limited menu of non-frozen items if you are looking for a snack. We went next door to Arby's... More

We tend to stop here after dinner for their soft serve. Fast and friendly service. Milkshakes are good, too. Best part is our dog Cooper gets a sample whenever he comes with us!

Seriously, the smallest serving is $5? Ice cream tasted ok. But, I just wanted a small serving, not 3 scoops, but that's the smallest. Not the place to take a family with three kids unless you want to part with$25. Won't go back.

Took the kids to get a hotdog and ice cream. The hotdog was good but pretty expensive. The ice cream was very good also.

The cappuccino kahlua ice cream was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I eat tons of ice cream, and that was my top three I've ever had. My wife had a banana split, and that was pretty good. I recommend this place, even though it's a little more expensive than an average place.
