Had Big Olaf's as an after dinner dessert, and it was so good! The staff was very friendly and funny. Enjoyed the waffle cone and will go get another one when I go back to visit!

We always love Big Olaf's ice cream and we're there at least once a day but this year we were really disappointed in the counter staff. I get it that serving ice cream all day isn't glamorous, but they had no customer service skills at all. We also get it that an ice cream shop is going to have high school kids working the counter and this is good and fun, but for pete's sake give them a quick lesson on customer service. Not all of them were unfriendly, but the ones we saw most often were not as dynamic as some of the other young people we encountered working on the island. The ice cream is good though!

Long lines, but decent prices. the people working behind the counter were nice, even though we recognized the young man from the fish & chips shack on the pier, you'd never guess he works two jobs from the sunny smile he had!

the big waffle cone is $0.50 more expensive than Lloyd's but they add whip cream, nuts and a cherry. The regular cones are $0.30 more expensive than Lloyd's, but I don't see anything different.

This price difference is for single scoop ice cream.

The frozen bananas and the ice cream were awesome! Be prepared for a line due to how good this place is.
