Big Olaf has been serving the best ice cream on the island for many years. Traditionally, the people line up out the door for their fabulous creamy concoctions. If you eat dinner in Siesta Village, treat yourself to dessert at Big Olaf.

Great little ice cream shop in St, Armands circle. Amish-owned and CASH only. The ice cream was delicious and the portions were large. They show the prices for competing ice cream shops (e.g., Ben & Jerrys) to show what a value they are...and we agree!

Best yogurt/ice cream we had the entire trip. Service was great and selection was varied. The entire family loved what they got. It's a must stop!

Get ready to make a major decision on the flavor(s) selection for your cone or cup of rich Big Olaf's ice cream. Thank goodness the staff is very friendly and patient.

I don't know who Big Olaf is, but he/they have the ice cream concept nailed. Don't be intimidated if there is a line. The efficiency of the staff is impressive. They will be serving you before you can make up your mind. They won't rush you however. Enjoy.

Tried the "trash can" (a mixture of a little bit of everything) and the toasted coconut. Both tasty and creamy. Would go again to try the other flavors. Service was friendly and fast.

One scoop is a big serving. They have many kinds of chocolate and who cares what else. But my wife says the butter pecan and pralines & cream are awesome.

Tried two soft serve and two traditional flavors. Every one was a solid offering. I travel by motorcycle, all over the country, and always stop for ice cream. Big Olaf is a top 1% offering.
