Service with a smile

We had a cone of cookies and cream and a chocolate milkshake. They were both very good. I was asked did I want vanilla with chocolate sauce or chocolate ice cream for my shake. I had never been asked that but I went with chocolate ice cream and it felt more authentic. Great place on a hot day... read more

Good Edy's ice cream, but nothing special. Very busy and line was extremely long. Not enough seating. Service was good.

It is literally Edy's and Ben & Jerry's ice cream. The same gallons that you can buy at the store. They do have a lot of flavors, but when I go out for ice cream, I want something different from what I have in my freezer at home. That being said chocolate and peanut butter is the greatest ice cream... More

This is some excellent ice cream. Fun little after dinner treat! Prices were definitely more than braums but this was a fun experience.

Don't think I've ever been to Gulf Shores without visiting Scoops. Definitely an old time favorite. Lines can be long, but worth the wait.

Took our family of 9 there for an after dinner treat. Lots of choices and a busy place. All of us really enjoyed our various ice cream treats. Would highly recommend this place for dessert.

Waffle cones were fresh and there were so many choices of dessert items! Our group had everything! Smoothie, sundae, waffle cones and shake and no one was disappointed. The line was long but the got served really quick.

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.

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.
