We needed some ice cream and we knew there was only one place at John's Pass we could go for it. The guy serving was friendly and offered us testers but we both knew what we wanted. Would definitely recommend a visit.

If you are a sweet tooth -- this is your place. It's on the Boardwalk, right next to all the restaurants - you won't miss it. I'd had some fudge there on my previous visits to John's Pass, and that was excellent. This time, too. I also bought some chocolate to bring back to the hotel. Service was fast and... More

Made a specific trip back to John's Pass before we left Madeira Beach for Kilwin's ice cream. Worth every calorie and the ice cream is even better in their homemade waffle cones. We had the Kilwin Mud and the Cappuccino crunch (or whatever it's equivalent was).

Every year when we come to a florida, I stop in a kilwin's and get a pecan Carmel apple. Usually I get them in Naples or Fort Myers Beach. I figured all kilwin's would have the same ingredients, but this place is lacking. The Carmel was bland, they only put pecans on one third of the apple, instead of the... More

We stope here every time we are in Florida. They have amazing fudge, treat and ice cream! You can watch to the side as they make their chocolate and caramel. The sea salt caramel chocolate fudge is the best!

Every time we're in the area we go to Kilwin's The people that work there are really friendly and helpful. We LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the ice cream. One of these times we might even try the candy. Looks really good too.

The ice cream is awesome. My husband also had a chocolate covered apple and loved it. Also being right on the water makes it more enjoyable. Will definitely be going back in the future.

Had heard of Kilwins and have tried their chocolates and popcorn at different location but this was our first time having Kilwins Ice Cream. Very creamy and great choice of flavors. You can tell they use quality ingredients.

The name doesn't do it justice but this place is an ice cream store (plus chocolate and don't remember what else). But we were in here for the ice cream and it was great. They do warn you about the seagulls, they apparently like to swoop in on unsuspecting tourists and snatch their waffle cones! Should make this stop when... More
