Good stuff! Who doesn't love ice cream? You can't sit outside or walk through the artsy store next door.

I enjoyed spoiling my dinner with afternoon ice cream from Great Licks. The scoop size was generous, but the toppings were a little stingy. The ice cream was tasty and they had quite a few options. Also, since it is attached to a giftshop, you can sit down and eat ice cream while you wait for the shoppers in your... More

A cute little ice cream store. The young lady behind the counter was working by herself and was very friendly and fast. She gave samples and the price of the ice cream was reasonable. Four of us ate ice cream for 13.00 dollars. Not bad. Plenty of place to sit and eat outside. I imagine it could get pretty crowded... More

Great homemade ice cream. I got a scoop of key lime pie and a scoop of toasted coconut. So good. The key lime pie had graham cracker crumbles on top. The guy who worked there was really nice.

We ordered 2 scoops each! What a treat! I ordered key lime pie & coconut. Yummmm, the coconut was Devine! My daughter ordered key lime & caramel... More

Stopped in here with my Mom and Sister when they were down for my Mom's 89th b'day and I'm glad we did. This is a really cute little ice cream shop in the same building as a shop that sells collectibles. There are a few inside tables and several outside tables so seating is not much of a problem. They... More

After checking out the artsy shops in Matlacha, we always stop @ Great Licks Ice Cream! Excellent choices, but can't beat my favorite "Turtle Sundae".
