All of the flavors are fantastic! Have tried almost all of them. Julie and the crew are always happy to see everyone and provide great service. Have tried the other establishments, even the one that says they are the best in Punta Gorda and none compare. My family and I will be back.

Heard good things about this place. It is busy, but we weren't impressed. Tried it about 3 times, but probably won't go back. Ice cream is mediocre at best. Servings are small and prices are high.

Every time we come to PG we always stop at the Working Cow at least once during the week. Sometimes more! Each time we come we try to try something new. We like some better than others but all have been delicious. The staff is always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend the Working Cow!

Hard to find and well worth it. A gazillion flavors (well maybe not a gazillion, but a lot) that are always delicious. Every month there are new additions. Hard pack, soft serve and lots of sandwiches too.

This ice cream shop offers a wide variety of flavors. All outside sitting. $2.00 will get you a single dip cone. Small portions compared to other shops, but I'm okay with that. I will return.

They change the options all the time and continue to find the best ice cream flavors ever and n sugar and real stuff are the best.

this place is a great stop at the end of a hot day. The quality of ice cream and the variety are great. Beware, they are very generous with their scoops and the medium is bigger than most large at other venders. The prices are quite reasonable for what you get. They do offer food as well but I have...

Working Cow never disappoints. Great homemade ice cream. Fast service. Lovely outside tables. We love to walk there after dinner. The flavors change monthly and we've never had one we didn't like.

This tiny little hometown style place is a best kept secret. The ice cream is awesome and the people are nice.

I love being able to walk up to the window outside to order. The ice cream is delicious, and the staff friendly enough. Shakes are super thick, and the outdoor seating pleasant.
