Nice Ice Cream Shop

Stopped at Scoops with friends after attending a show at the Civic Center. Easy to find on Gulf Shores Parkway (Rt. 59). A nice selection of flavors. Staff was friendly and helpful. Of great importance the ice cream was very good tasting.

This place is dangerously close to our RV park. We walk over there practically every night. They have a huge selection of ice cream, but we try to stick with the lower calorie frozen yogurt. They have 3 flavors of soft serve yogurt, vanilla, chocolate & twist. Unfortunately they also have about 25 different toppings so we always have to... More

Scoops is always a great stop! We went twice in one week! In October, it's not quite as crowded so that helps.

We scream for Ice Cream, it was hot, the traffic was horrible but there was Scoops, we stopped and had a double serving of Peach ice cream and sat on their porch and relaxed. Nice selection of flavors and it is fairly priced. The young lady that waited on us was pleasant and gave a fair portion for the price

Best caramel Sunday I've had in a long time! Served Ben & Jerry's ice cream - GMO free! So you can eat good quality ice cream and make a consumer statement all at once.

Good selection and not too expensive. The only negative thing about this shop is there is not enough parking!!
