This is a cute island local ice cream shop that's worth checking out. No need to go to Dairy Queen down the road. This place is better. The bakery next door is amazing as well.

Stopped by early on a Wednesday on way to airport to go home. Wish we had found this place sooner. The ice cream is terrific. We had something with Sanibel in the name. It was great! No line at this time but the porch was full of people enjoying their ice cream. My only complaint was the portions were huge. I asked for a smaller portion in a waffle cone and the server said they would still have to charge me the same.

We tried Pinnocchio's ice cream because we heard so much about it. We found all the flavors to taste similar and not very exciting. They give huge portions but also charge huge prices for even the smallest serving. We'll stick with Queenie's.

We stopped here after our bike ride around the wildlife refuge. It was a highlight of the day - fabulous ice cream in rocking chairs on the porch.
