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.

Slome of the flavors were unavailable, but the normal standard favorites were. (Choc, van, straw.) Service was fast & courteous.

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.

Overall the soft-serve was good...not the best i have had. The price way over priced. I got the soft-serve a regular for $3.75 yes it was a good portion but $3.75 come on. Sorry but in my opinion just another tourist trap in Florida. I am glad i did not bring a family. The hard pack ice cream $4.50 A... More

Ordered a vanilla and orange swirl in a cake cone. Good size and fair price. Not cheapest, but would order again.
