Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place is honestly gross. At first glance, it looks like a cute little place but as you are looking around it’s pretty dirty. The employee acted like she didn’t want to be there. I asked for a waffle cone with sprinkles like the one...that was displayed. Apparently they didn’t have any fresh so she grabbed the one off the display and filled it with my ice cream GROSS! Who knows how long it had been there. It was an open display case, any bugs could have landed on it or dust etc. Two ice cream cones were $16. I threw my cone out because gross. That just ruined my whole experience and appetite. There’s also a bowl for “dirty sample spoons” so I’m assuming they wash and reuse those too which is gross (hopefully not).More

Friendly helpful staff! Ice cream had a great texture and flavor. Lots of flavors and vegan options too. Fair with prices. Have already returned once on the trip and will keep this place in mind for the future.

This is the first time eating ice cream at the Pink Pelican ice cream, and the last time! First, the ice cream is very pricy for a small portion that you get for the price! The shop tables need a good general cleaning! The cracks...on the tables have dried sprinkles inside the cracks and are not very eye appealing to the customers! The area in front of the shop needs a general cleaning as well! The ice cream is tasty but not cheap!More

Good ice cream, lots of choices. Lots of specialty Ice cream creations. The place is very dirty. Needs a good cleaning from top to bottom. Missing a lot of labels for the ice cream flavors. Employees are tasting as much ice cream as they are...handing out.More

My family and I came in after getting rained out on the beach. Ice cream is always the best after a beach day! We always prefer to support local so I did a search for the best ice cream in the area and this one...kept coming up. Since it was on the way to our hotel, we made our way to the Pink Pelican! While it was still raining, we came in and were warmly greeted. My son sampled probably almost every flavor of ice cream, at least that what it seemed, and I am assuming he is the owner, was so nice and patient! The ice cream was so delicious but the service made it that much more memorable! Thank you for a delicious treat but an even better experience! Be sure to stop here while in PCB!More

Overall great experience. The line was very long when we arrived but it moved quickly. They have a large variety of ice cream flavors as well as many specialty items. We ordered a sundae, a milkshake, and 2 scoops of ice cream. Each one was...full of flavor and large portions. The staff was great as well. We are making this our go to place for ice cream whenever we are in town which is often. Can’t wait to return!More

We had an awesome experience at this ice cream shop! When we walked in and saw the long line, I knew my husband was not thrilled. He would have left, but I convinced him to stay, and the line actually moved pretty quickly due to...the efficiency of the employees. You might think they would be stressed and frazzled with so many people in line waiting, but they were friendly and helpful! It was a whirlwind of activity behind that counter. There are lots of flavors to choose from and plenty of options from a cup or cone all the way to a banana split. When we left, my husband was happy we stuck it out for some delicious ice cream!More

For what you get I think it was pretty over priced. Same ice cream you can get every where else, no cool glasses, and same portions for a significant price hike.

I will never tell anyone that this is top rated ice cream or customer service. I went in here on thursday toward 5 or little later. A girl came out crossed her arms said what can I get you I responded I don't know I've...never been there. Instead of telling me bout the ice cream or offing tasting of ice cream she just stood there looked at me like I was stupid. More people came in I moved out way cause I still didn't know and three or four young boys came from back they looked high and one of them grabbed a spoon and started sampling ice cream from back there hisself the bites where so big he was spilling it on hisself. So not only did no one wash they hands or gloves they was eating the ice cream I was so disappointed because I had read such good things and I was excited. Instead I grabbed my daughter we left.More

If you're in the City it would be over the bridge so at least 20 minutes.

No.. It is in a strip mall right across from Holiday Inn Resort on front beach rd. There's a pizza place next door that is also supposed to be good.
