Very good quality ice cream. My wife especially enjoyed the sugar free ice cream here. That being said, it was nearly $15 for 2 ice creams in waffle cones!

It’s ice cream....always good and always a long line. We have been in Siesta Key for Spring break the last two years and this place is always busy.

We have been eating the treats her at Big Olaf for over 35 years. It is a high quality product. But the sticker shock really gets me every time. If you think going to the movies is crazy overpriced, then your not going to enjoy...More

Great ice cream shop with many choices. They also had a candy/fudge area. It was a little pricey, but was staffed well and worth the money and effort!

This was my second Big Olaf excursion--I've also been to the one on St. Armand's Key--and I'm a fan, especially the Toasted Coconut. When we were looking at properties for next year's Siesta Key stay, my husband asked, "How far are they from Big Olaf's?"...More

Nice ice cream and sweets. Perfect for a sweet treat in Siesta Key Village. Good local business to support.

Me and my like this place so much we went there three days in a row. The coffee ice cream,rum raisin and black cherry are all excellent choices. Service was quick and friendly.

We visited here based on TripAdvisor recommendations and weren't disappointed. Loads of choices of ice cream making it a tough choice. I went for the white chocolate raspberry in a waffle cone which was great. I'd a single scoop which was plenty. Don't miss it...More
