From all the literature pointing us to this place, promising gargantuan scoops, good prices, tasty ice cream, and everything home made, I thought it would be a treat. Instead it was awful - chocolate brownie ice cream was brown and flavorless, prices were double other locations, and the homemade cone was stale while the raspberry sauce in my daughter's sundae...

Stopped here for dessert one night and we were not disappointed. They have a variety of flavors which are all home made and they're generous with the scoops. A bit pricey but it's ice cream on the beach.

Cortez Rd. location. Food was fair. Served on paper plates. Place was very crowded. Good place for early birds on a budget

Up the stairs and into sugar. Lots of flavors and good toppings for the eye. Ice cream is good. Pleasant seating, it is old beachy feel just across the street from the water. Limited parking but near action on bridge street.

Another great old Florida ice cream shop. Old florida atmosphere and terrific home made ice cream. Samples available. The oldies music greets you at the door and a nice sitting area with a great elevated street and gulf view out front.Prices are reasonable and many toppings and flavors.

The homemade ice cream was flavorfull. Appears to be good, fresh ingredients. Would love to come back and try the chocolate covered frozen pies or chocolate covered bananas. They looked great.

We go to Joe's almost every night when we visit Anna Maria Island. There are so many choices. They make the ice cream there, so it's better than the norm. And it gets busy, but the kids behind the counter always have a smile and are super friendly and courteous. It's our tradition to skip dessert, regardless of where we... More
