OK -- I had heard about Love Boat ice cream, but every time I had driven past there was a line out the door. But Love Boat has now moved a few blocks south into a larger facility and it seems to get you in,...More

I love cinnamon ice cream. Only problem? I can never find it. I was so delighted to see it on the menu here, even though it had caramel in it. Very tasty! Highly recommended. There are tons of flavors, so something for everyone.

You must stay away from “Love Boat Ice Cream!” If you don’t you will find yourself craving it many times a day. It is “out of this world!” I’m warning you. So many different flavors and all are delicious.

A friend told us about this place. First time we went (to the old location) the line was out the door, but the wait was worth it! Now in the new larger building things move faster and the ice cream is still the same premium...More

A Ft. Myers staple since the 1960’s, there are 2 locations within about 1/2 mile of each other. The smaller original and a bigger, newer one. The flavor options are ridiculous, so many it’s hard to choose! My family loved the key lime pie, birthday...More

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