We've tried to get here during the summer months, but parking and super long lines just make it difficult. Finally tried in December and it was worth the wait. Great options and really good ice cream!

Nothing better than a Big Olaf's ice cream on a hot Siesta night watching the crowd in the village. Lots of variety but it is cash only!

Me and my like this place so much we went there three days in a row. The coffee ice cream,rum raisin and black cherry are all excellent choices. Service was quick and friendly.

We visited here based on TripAdvisor recommendations and weren't disappointed. Loads of choices of ice cream making it a tough choice. I went for the white chocolate raspberry in a waffle cone which was great. I'd a single scoop which was plenty. Don't miss it...More

Big Olof is in the heart of Siesta Key village. On a warm day or night the line could be out the door. Indulge yourself in huge servings of ice cream in many many flavors.

We visited many different ice cream parlors during our visit and this one was our favorite! Great variety, affordable and great flavor. It is a popular spot and there is typically a line to order. It is well worth the wait, however!

This place has a wide selection of hand churned ice-cream. Friendly service, interesting to learn that it has been in Siesta Key for over 25 years and has an Amish background. Give yourself a treat on a hot Florida day!

We visit Siesta Key every fall, and Big Olaf is one of our annual traditions. The ice cream is fabulous - hand-churned on site. White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl is my favorite. Prices are a bit high - seem to go up every year - but...More

I’ve been coming to Siesta Key for years with family and friends, and I make sure I stop at Big Olaf at least once during every visit. Great ice cream!
