So many flavors, awesome cones, and a generous helping. Two scoops were $7+tax. Kind of expensive but the portions were large. Only issue is that you needed to lick it like crazy so it didn’t melt all over. Indoor air-conditioned seating and outdoor porch seating. No parking which stinks but they are land-locked. Tastes like its homemade as the claim. Also have several flavors of fudge which looked very good. No bathroom but a water cooler at the front to get the “sticky” off your hands.

We went here for ice cream 3 times during our week in SK. You can sample from their HUGE assortment of ice cream flavors & they have fudge, milkshakes & Italian ice. The line was very long ( way out the door), but the employees work quickly to get you in and out. The young people working were very friendly & patient. The prices are fair, about $3-$4 for a generous cup. There isn’t much seating inside, but plenty of room along the outside. My only suggestion to the manager would be to have someone grabbing the trash ( it was overflowing) and wipe down the tables.

My kids wanted to stop here. The name grabs their attentions. There is a large variety of flavors which is nice. The scoops are a large portion which reflect in the prices. However, I personally had butter pecan and was less than impressed. Lacking flavor and that delicious creaminess that one craves. My husband had chocolate brownie and he felt the same, completely underwhelmed. I wasnt into the flavor of the waffle cone that they make there either. I would have preferred culver's or dairy queen.

We have to enjoy an ice cream at Big Olafs at least once every time we are in Siesta Key. The kids rave about it. My 2nd grader even wrote a report about Big Olafs in school. That’s how much she loves it! Yes, it is overpriced and there’s always a line out the door but we can’t pass it up. Nearly $20 for 4 single cones but delicious.
