Scoops has a respectable variety of flavors and ice cream treats, but they were not anything I would return for specifically. They also sell Ben & Jerrys!

I live in Fort Wayne Indiana where Edys ice cream is manufactured so I'm well aware if how great it taste. This is one of the few times where I felt misled by Trip Advisor! Long line, no where to sit, no where to park & extremely overpriced for ice cream I can buy myself. I'm not sure why Scoops... More

This place has good ice cream and we will be going back for more. I got a waffle cone cookies and cream and it was really good. My fiancé ordered the daily special blueberry and strawberry smoothie and the server was confused and had to ask like three or four people before someone said they'd make it and then we... More

Great place. Hubby had a banana split - fantastic. I had a chocolate soda with chocolate ice cream - a childhood favorite of mine and something you can't find very often. This was our dinner. 😃 Service was great. Will return for sure.

We stopped here to get ice cream. I am diabetic, so always look for a place that has sugar free. Wow this place had several flavors of sugar free and many flavors of regular ice cream, frozen yogurt, etc. The facility is nice and clean, and the employee was very friendly and pleasant. I ordered some butter pecan, and got... More

This little ice cream shop is near impossible to get into during the summer months and I now know why. There ice cream is delicious and priced pretty decent for being on the coast. My wife and two others as well as myself revisited Gulf Shores in the "Off Season", and took advantage of the small crowds. Worth a stop... More

There are few and far between places that can make a really good "old fashion" ice cream soda. Scoops in Gulf Shores has it down. I always ask for vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup. I can't each year until we return to Orange Beach. It takes me back to the drug store soda fountain I enjoyed as a child.
