Good after dinner treat

It's true that this is Eddy's ice cream that you can buy from the store and it's not as good as Blue Bell, but it's fun to take the family by and have a couple of scoops after dinner. It's family fun.

We go here with family every time we come to gulf shores/orange beach. Good ice cream, lots of variety and special sundaes. They'll add anything or make anything you ask! Good service. Long lines but goes fast!!! Only problem is not enough seating. Not enough of a problem for us to stay away.

This is merely Edy's ice cream that you can go by at the local grocery store. Nothing special and definitely not homemade. I'd rather go by the ice cream at the store and spend less money.

smells heavenly outside, is heavenly inside! (your mouth!) Quick and friendly and accurate staff who strive to get you in, served, and out the door as fast as possible. Trust me, there is NEVER a missing line. We saw and experienced lines out the door all week! But! Don't let that deter you, as they they are FAST! Ice cream... More

This is just a fun place to stop in and enjoy an ice cream cone in a great atmosphere. The porch is perfect and the treats are wonderful!

They need more space inside. It's narrow where you stand to order, but it's worth going and enjoying the ice cream
