Fantastic ice cream, generous serving sizes at great prices. I don't usually care for ice cream, the family wasted to stop here, but this ice cream was very good.

Everyone in our party wanted ice cream. This is the place for everyone to get what they want. Lots of flavors and choices! The place was packed but the line moved quickly.

After a long exploratory drive around Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, AL, we were looking for an afternoon Ice Cream stop. We passed Scoops, heading out on our exploration and thought we would stop on our way back. Since it was officially winter time, we were wondering how many Ice Cream shops would be open. Scoops' name and prominent roadside... More

Stopped for ice cream. Great tasting. One person had a banana split and the report was positive. Another had a sundae and gave a similar report. Another had a hot fudge sundae but got only chocolate sauce-- no good for a hot fudge addict. Very disappointing. I had peanut butter ice cream-- very, very good. Will not return because hot...

Ice cream was wonderful. A little on the pricey side, but it was very good. A nice little way to top off your evening.

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

Cute little place for some ice cream. Our family has been here multiple times when we come down to Orange Beach for vacation and every time it's been good eats.
