Bobs never fails to deliver the best ice cream anywhere! They have the best soft serve and their real handmade ice cream is fresh and delicious. I love the coconut ice cream! This is a must stop for any one visiting Venice!

Drive thru for a hot fudge sundae! Great ice cream and good service. We discovered this place several years ago and it never fails to deliver!

The ice cream was very good. I'm not really an expert on ice cream, but this was soft and delicious. Wife and son had sundaes and a cone. I had a cup and all were very good. Pricing was not cheap, but can expect to...More

Good variety of ice cream and yogurt flavors. Cones have a BUNCH of ice cream so be prepared. Nice patio with music from 50's and 60's.

Bob's has a variety of ice cream dishes and some American sandwiches. Ice cream is very good. Great place to sit outside and enjoy the Florida weather. It appears to be manned by a group of good high school/college kids most of the time who...More

Stopped by for a dish of ice cream. It's not cheap but it is good and you'll get a big scoop. They don't offer a ton of flavors but they have some unusual choices. The seating area outside is nice.

This is a drive-in, walk to the window type of place. There is no inside seating but who needs it in Florida? Good selection of hand dipped or soft serve. Generous amount at a reasonable price. Would recommend.
