It was crowded both nights we went, but we didn't wait long. Good waffle cones and cold creamy ice cream to cool off the night!

It was yummy and had several choices however I do not know if it would be worth the wait. On our visit it had long lines several times. There are a few new ice cream places in Gulf Shores, give them a try, no line and good service. Not the selection however.

For the price you pay for one person you could go get a whole carton of Edy's at the store. The wait was very long. The staff was gossiping behind the counter and working rather slowly. I won't be going back.

It was fun to be around a lot of people waiting in line for this ice cream. But the ice cream is not homemade, it was Edy's. Edy's is good but not sure if it's "olde fashion" ice cream.

The ice cream was good and the staff friendly. They have a large selection of different treats. The prices were fair and the place was clean.

While we were on vacation we stopped to see what it was like because it stayed so busy! Well after the first time, we went back every night! Great ice cream, fun friendly place, well worth it!

Typical ice cream joint, but the lines are ridiculous. There are several other ice cream, frozen yogurt, and frozen custard places around that don't have a ridiculous line and wait time.

Home made, hand scooped ice cream served in waffle cones...YUM. It is very popular so finding a place to park is difficult, but they have a worker out in the street helping customers park.

I was disappointed that the ice cream was not home made or locally sourced, but the atmosphere was fun and made for a nice after dinner treat. The servers were friendly and there were a lot of choices. We enjoyed the stop.
