Don't miss Love Boat in the Jerry's plaza on Sanibel. The name may not be as cute as Pinocchio's, but the ice cream is *way* better. Plus they have cold brew iced coffee and other refreshing goodies. Enjoy!

This ice cream is THE best. It's a bit pricey but well worth it. Rich, creamy ingredients make this ice cream...wait for it...melt in your mouth. Soon they will have a new building that will make ordering easier and seating better. YUMMY!

My personal favorite is the Dirty Turtle. There, I just narrowed it down for ya ;) Parking is a pain and it's REALLY REALLY REALLY crowed and tight inside, so be ready with your choice to keep the line moving!

Very good local stop for ice scream. This place is packed inside and outside. Selections are a lot and services are excellent. However, one scoop for kids costs $4 is on the high side. We did enjoy it and its logo.

Go here. It's amazing. Expect a bit of a wait and to sit outside. But it's well worth any inconvenience. Incredible selection and unique flavors.

One of the best icecream place in Fort Myers! They have so many options and all fresh and creamy. The line might be long but they work fast to get in. Very courteous staff too. They are building a bigger and better place down the road, right next to my other favorite restaurant Pastabilities ! Yum

If you want an ice cream fix, this is the place to go! The line can sometimes queue out the door and round the building but if you can stand the wait, you won't be disappointed. The only thing is, once you're inside it can take you ages to decide which of the 100+ flavours to choose! They are changing... More

The ice cream was delicious! I had a scoop of coffee toffee and cookie dough. I only gave three stars because the place could be a lot cleaner. The servers had very dirty shirts and the floor was covered in dried ice cream.

I love going to love boat; the service is great and the ice cream is delicious. It is a true ice cream shop with various types of fresh ice cream and ways to enjoy it (waffle cones; waffle cones with different toppings, regular cones, cups and sundaes). We enjoy this store and we also buy love boat ice cream from... More

A lot of excellent choices in a large pleasant location. They had my hard to find favorite, Rum Raisain and a lot of funny sign on the wall.
