nice little ice cream shop - parking stinks

We went late after dinner and go-karting. Parking was tight. Ice cream was good......I agree with other posters to go buy ice cream and cones at the store and come out ahead. However, the Cotton Candy ice cream is the BOMB!

My kids absolutely love Scoops! We make at least 5 visits during our week in Gulf Shores each year. Great place to go for ice cream in the evening. Can get a little busy during peak season but it's worth the wait!!

Wished we'd known it was just Edy's ice cream before we got there. They have lots of options, though. Parking is difficult. It's expensive. Go to Publix and buy a whole quart and 4 spoons for the price of one cone.

I'd give them five stars, but for the rather harried, unfriendly teenage girls behind the counter. I understand that they were very busy, but a smile goes a long way to gain goodwill with customers. The ice cream was good.

This is a nice little ice cream shop on 59. Even though the outdoor temperatures were cold, we had heard good things about the ice cream there, so we stopped in. Husband had his usual mint ice cream. I had an awesome pineapple coconut ice cream. I went back later in that week for another helping. There is something there... More

We stopped here for dessert before heading back to our condo for the night. It was full when we walked in but the line moved quickly. They were well staffed & helpful with making our choices. My sons ha root beer floats, my husband had ice cream in waffle cone, and I had the brownie delight. Everyone likes their choices.... More

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...
