We were on our way back from a visit to Shell Key and decided to look for ice-cream. Larry's came up on our gps as the closest place, so we headed there. The place is going through a major remodel. They are adding some additional food/features. So it was a bit difficult to navigate around counters and freezers and construction... More

My wife and I were looking for gelato and found Larry's. it was great. Friendly staff, lots of choices and happy to give you tastes. My wife had lemon and dark chocolate ( 2 different flavors) and I had espresso bean for one and another scoop of salted caramel. They were all delicious. Worth the stop!

The two young men working were friendly and one was particularity helpful offering samples. There is an outdoor spot to sit. I recommend this stop for... More

They advertise 60 flavors of homemade gelato and ice cream so allow yourself time to make a selection. I had the Bourbon Caramel Gingersnap gelato which was amazing and a very dark chocolate (which I can't remember the name of!) that was also very good. We all had two flavors as no one could decide and thought the gelatos were... More

Sea salt caramel gelato was perfect. Some places make it too salty - this really was the best I have ever had. They had about 24 flavors of gelato and at least that much ice cream. At least 6 different dipped waffle cone flavors.

They have 3 cold displays with about 70 flavours, I think, being out of season, there was too much selection for their level of trade. So the ice cream i chose tasted a bit stale, like it had been in the open too long. Its about a five minute walk to the beach from the shop.

I love everything about Larry's from the quality, to the variety, to the friendly staff. There is a lot of turnover here so the ice cream is not sitting around. There are unique flavors of ice cream as well as cakes and pies. This is a place to visit on your trip to the area for sure!

I don't often ask my phone for recommendations, but when I do it's invariably for the "nearest coffee shop." When I'm truly desperate for a treat, I beg for the "nearest ice cream shop." Larry's to the rescue. The selection is overwhelming, the flavors amazing, and the portions large enough for leftovers.
