Gotta have ice cream

Quaint little place with lots of options. Our girls got scoops in cups, I got a sundae, husband got a shake, then we were envious of the next table who got chocolate covered bananas. It's Edy's ice cream, but its still good and familiar with friendly staff.

Thank God that this place was right down the street from our hotel because after our first banana split we had to come back every night after dinner and have one. The place itself is super cute and the prices are right. They even throw an Oreo in the banana split which gives it a little something extra. This place... More

My family and I are vacationing here and we love ice cream! Last night we went to Matt's homemade Alabama ice cream so tonight we tried scoops so we could compare. Well my family of 4 decided unanimously that Scoops is better! The staff was friendlier, the ice cream was tastier and we just loved it! I got the brownie... More

You can't go wrong with this place. The ice cream is cold, and the service is friendly. A great place to seek refuge from the summer heat!

Scoops was a cute little shop with great ice cream! We got there at the perfect time right before the crowd arrived. It gets crowded FAST.

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

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. Great service... More

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
