Love this place! Usually a line out the door but worth the wait! Lots & Lots of Choices! A little pricey $$ But the kids love it as well as us adults! We visit every evening after dinner when on the island.

I visited this place to try again. I do not see how this place is still open. It is dirty and nasty. Just deplorable. Ice cream is wet and nasty. Bathroom looks and smells like a hill-tribe in Thailand. Owner is a hateful and horrible man. Think it's a front for something. It is the dirtiest, nasty establishment I have... More

I love ice cream, but am diabetic and was pleased to discover they have five flavors of sugar-free homemade ice cream. Maple walnut was the best. pizza not to bad either.

Went to Joe's for hot fudge brownie sundae craving after going to Tyler's homemade ice cream and seeing that it was closed. Almost seven dollars for their "brownie sundae" which was mostly just vanilla ice cream and small chunks of overly cooked brownie.their description is misleading . Skip this

...we ordered one serving of banana in a cup and one serving of banana and chocolate covered cherry ice cream in a cup. Both flavors were very tasteless and the cherry had a grainy texture. Atmosphere was dark and people did not have good sense of humor. We're in our 60s and won't be back.

My husband and I wanted to try their ice cream. It was fantastic! They make it right there. We had the chocolate cherry. Made us think of Traverse City~Cherry Capitol. Very reasonable too.

Stopped here while walking along Bradenton Beach on a warm, sunny day. The exterior (particularly the stairs) was a little on the rough side... I was scared I was going to go through! Thankfully I didn't. Wonderful selection of flavours and a lot of different sundae combinations (made with their home-made ice cream). The tables were a little soiled from... More

Don't go here. Ice cream is slimey and wet. The place is dirty and bathroom is deplorable. Horrible owner and he thinks everyone is parking there to go to beach. He will tow you even if you get ice cream there.
