Love Boat has been around for YEARS...they just moved down the street to a larger location. Brownie batter is the BEST!!!! You can buy gallons to go - and I don't even like ice cream, lol. The kids love it.

We have always stopped at Love Boat for the last 30 years, after the beach ritual. The new building is beautiful, still a line, good is still good, and it's always worth the wait

Very busy most afternoons and nights and especially in hot weather. Probably Monday night may be slowest. You could call them and ask.
