We were looking forward to a summer evening ice cream. This was so run down and the 2 student age girls running the shop were lethargic. The store was not clean. The good news was that the ice cream tasted good. We will not be writing home about this one.

Hello. Thank you for your review. Are you sure you were at our place? Our Tyler’s store is on Longboat Key in the Centre Shops next to the Lazy Lobster. The reason I ask is our place is only two years old, very clean and in our opinion would not be described as rundown. You may look at our photos on our TripAdvisor page: Tyler’s Gourmet Ice Cream on Longboat Key - to help decide if you were at our establishment, or possibly somewhere else. Thank you again for your post. Your feedback is appreciated.

The ice cream is good. About 20 flavors to choose from. Their best attribute is their location so that one does not have to drive about 8 miles to the busy St. Armand's Circle for ice cream.
