The ice cream is so good! Many flavors and options to choose from. Everyone is always so friendly. Even when they're busy, the wait is not long. I would highly recommend.

This little ice cream shop is great, and the employees are all upbeat, polite, efficient and fun. We make a trip here every week, and its for the people and service as well as the treat!

We go here every time we are on Siesta Key. The ice cream is outstanding and they always have plenty of help to make line move quickly. The only thing that would make it better is if ice cream was free!

Every time we come to Siesta Key, we have to make at least one stop (usually several) at Big Olaf with our kiddos! The kids love getting ice cream and then sitting out on a bench outside to enjoy. They have many different choices and its in a fun location- in downtown a Siesta Key!

Super busy place, and after sampling some flavors you understand why!! Very good ice cream with tons of options. We all got the chocolate dipped cone in sprinkles. Soo good. Pretty inexpensive and great variety! Loved it

Great Ice Cream and great location. Expensive but the beach crowd will pay anything. Always a nice thing to eat while walking around the area.

Big Olaf is amazing! They have great flavors of ice cream, including a personal favorite, the Chocolate Deluge. They also move people through very quickly, even though the place DOES get crowded (for good reason). VERY tasty ice cream!

We had milk shakes here after having them elsewhere and these were thin and without much taste. The staff were also definitely not friendly. I would not go back
