We drive over in the golf cart. Always busy but worth it. The original owner recently passed away. It is now under new management but quality is the same.

Give Ollie's a try. We are on a quest for finding the best custard in the US, so we had to try Ollie's. It was better than average and the staff was very good. Glad we tried it while in FLA. They could do a little better.

Saw recently that Ollies was up for sale. We love Ollies and hope the new owners won't change a thing. Ollies has always given back to the community and it's very much appreciated. Don waited on us today and was so pleasant to us & everyone coming in the door. Hope he stays around too. While my waistline doesn't appreciate... More

While the custard was pretty good (can't say great), they seem to have staffing issues. When we were there, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get a cone. There was one person working, 5 people in line, and the person working was also trying to fill the machines, clean the machines and crank the machines. Everyone in line... More

Ollie's is okay,however it is not above average. Servers are polite and work hard to meet orders in a timely manner. Regualr flavors are limited. Sugar-free flavors are also limited. Chairs are not comfortable and the appearance could be enhanced.

Who is better then Ollie's? We have been serving the Villages going on 16 years? I guess they have more comfortable chairs then us?? Flavors are limited because we make all the flavors fresh every morning, No one in the Villages does that! and we have the largest variety of sugar Free in town according to our customers. We sell...

It was a wonderful. A warm Spring night bringing back memories of the 60's. Small store with outdoor seating and delicious custard. Wonderful place to stop for a delicious treat.

OMG this place is WONDERFUL, now i have to drive thru that horrible Villages traffic about 2 or 3 times a week just to go get a custard. This place is definitely a hidden GEM in the villages. I wish they would open more stores and one closer to me. If you have not tried it, it is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

There were a number of customers sitting outside enjoying the Ollie's treats. The shop was clean and the young lady serving was nice, unfortunately there definitely was an unpleasant smell in the shop so we had our custard outside like the rest of the customers. We all got chocolate, it was OK and we finished most of it.

My mom and I came here after hearing great things from several of her neighbors in The Villages. Before going to Ollie's, I looked up their menu on their website and decided that I wanted a vanilla sundae with caramel and banana. Once we got there, the male cashier went to make my sundae while the female cashier got my... More
