We regularly visit Sub Zero when we are in Sarasota. Great service, wonderful ice cream and a "show" to boot. They make the ice cream right in front of you from scratch and flash freeze it. Kids love to watch the "smoke" come out of the bowl. Company got its start on the Shark Tank TV show so there is... More

Stopped in with my wife for ice cream at this place on a Thursday afternoon in Sarasota. The ice cream is made in front of you using liquid nitrogen; you order your size, cream base (soy, regular cream, custard, low fat, vegan), ice cream flavor (tons of flavors; I had chocolate; my wife peanut butter); then a mix in (I...

After some not very good food next door at Buffalo Wild Wings, we stopped in here for the 1st time. The big nitrogen tank got our attention! We both were so VERY satisfied with the friendly girls behind the counter last night (12/15/2016 at 7pm) and the custard they made us was so VERY delicious! Thank you!! We'll be back... More

What separates this place from other ice cream shops is that they make it in front of you, in real time, with nitrogen. You can choose one of their pre-designed concoctions, or design your own, with choice of base (e.g., custard, froyo, vegan), flavor for base, and mixer (e.g., candies). They have a decent selection. My chocolate froyo with Reese's... More

Thank you for your review. The flash freezing process really shines with our higher fat content bases. I hope you come back and try the Original base; it's super smooth and creamy. Happy New Year! More

Having never seen ice cream MADE in front of me, this was a cool experience- pun intended. Choice of ice cream ingredients is pretty big with lots of yummy add-ins. Original chocolate with Andes candies was a good start and I look forward to trying them all.

I walked in looking for a standard vanilla or Chocolate Ice cream. I was met by an enthusiastic gentleman behind the counter who launched into a long speech about how the place operated. To me the whole thing was weird. I just wanted an ice cream. After the long explanation, a very pretty young lady performed some sort of jabberwocky... More

Thank you for your review; we're sorry it wasn't to your liking. We use the same ingredients any ice cream maker uses: sweetened cream, sugar, and flavor. Liquid nitrogen simply freezes the cream faster and yields a denser, creamier end product, which has a different mouth feel than traditionally churned ice cream. We know we can't please everyone, but we... More

First time at sub zero. Plenty of choices and combinations. Fun to watch the ice cream form. A bit pricey.

We went here on a family outing. It was delicious! There were so may flavours to choose from. And to watch them make it with the liquid nitrogen was fascinating for the kids.

if you ever are near a Sub zero and have an urge for Ice cream this place is cool...The experience of having your ice cream made in front of you within a couple of minutes using Nitrogen is amazing. The taste is awesome!!! i recommend going with the custard based but I will let you decide for yourself.
