“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here with my family and had some good snow cones. Had a little trouble finding the place but no worries, we just got some extra steps in. Quick directions are to go to the palmeto harbor and park in the big parking lot. Walk past the black marlin and turn right towards the harbormaster office. Chris's place is actually a converted condo on the first level. Thanks Chris for the cones!

“Best snow cones you'll ever eat!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We found Snow Cones by Chris tucked away in the Palmetto Bay Marina. We are so glad we did! Hands down the best snow cones we've ever had. The flavor lasts till the last bite! Chris has 25 delicious flavors to choose from. You can mix and match, so the possibilities are endless! Chris is very friendly and helped us pick the best flavor combinations. Chris knows snow cones! We loved the snow cones so much that we came back the next day for more. Wished we had found it sooner during our stay. We enjoyed our snow cones out on the dock and saw a dolphin playing in the marina! Perfect! Our 10yr old enjoyed looking at Chris's Lego collection. Highly recommend making this a stop on your vacation!

“Sno-Cones”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Sno-Cones by Chris is a interesting, unpretentious little place. It's hard to find, it's near the boat launching platform in the Palmetto Bay Marina. It looks like a retrofitted condo residence. You open a patio sliding door to enter the unit. Once inside, you will meet Chris who is a very nice guy who offers many different homemade flavors of Sno-Cones. The cones are really great and he also offers two dye-free flavors. A small is $2 and a large is $3.

In addition, Chris is a Lego artist and he has his creations on display in the store. Adults will be impressed and the kids will love it.

It was a nice alternative to the other frozen dessert places and I'm glad we found it. We'll be back next time!

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We found the only Sno cone joint on the island. Chris has a wide variety of homemade favors that we really enjoyed. He also had a big display of lego's. We ended up going twice. $2.00 for a small and $3.00 for a regular. It is in the palmetto Bay Area. Glad we found it!!!
