Ok it’s DQ but when the sun is out in Florida you need a blizzard! This one is just off Periwinkle way on way through Sanibel. Expect huge ice cream and this one has a wrap around terrace to catch some rays!

Great ice cream...evening after dinner treat. Easy access and they are open until 9:00pm. They even have the chocolate and vanilla swirl cones.

It's a walk up establishment. It seems to always be busy, but as it turns out it, it looks busy but only because the service is really slow. The prices are significantly higher than every other DQ and much higher than the normal fast food...More

Stopped by after dinner tonight. Usual Diary Queen menu. Usual chocolate cone with chocolate sprinkles. Was really good, but this DQ needs a face lift. Run down looking and could use a good cleaning, inside and out. But Diary Queen always is good. Always...

All the standard DQ menu items (food and ice cream treats) you expect. Good service. Also popular, some sometimes there is a bit of a wait. Only consistent complaint - mosquitoes! Better repellent practices are needed by the establishment (no indoor seating)
