We always go by and get ice cream at Scoops when we are in Gulf Shores. We have been customers for 20+ years. Great place for the young and old.

Scoops is a must see when you visit gulf shores. The atmosphere is wonderful for the young and the old. They are a little on the pricey side but there is nothing like eating ice cream on the deck at scoops with friends and family. Nothing but good memories year after year!

Well, you can't go to Gulf Shores without stopping by Scoops for some ice cream. It's located on the main drag, in the midst of the gift shops and stores. So, it's nice to take a break from shopping and enjoy an ice cream cone or sundae. I'm sure we'll stop by again on our next beach trip!

We had ice cream (after a night out with the family) in Gulf Shores Saturday eve. If you like Edys...you will love their ice cream. They have a large selection of Edys ice cream flavors and toppings. Parking is very limited, crowded and it is pricey(with emphasis). I am more partial to Blue Bell but my kids don't care...ice cream... More

We went here one night after dinner. It's edys ice cream so nothing AMAZING but it was good and service was fast. The workers were friendly. For seven of us it was about 35 dollars, I guess that's about average for ice cream on the beach.

Well its Edys ice cream and that's about it. Be prepared for a wait and very limited parking. Its also on a busy highway. Its a little pricey for a store brand ice cream cone. If you are just looking for something to do its ok.

It was crowded both nights we went, but we didn't wait long. Good waffle cones and cold creamy ice cream to cool off the night!

It was yummy and had several choices however I do not know if it would be worth the wait. On our visit it had long lines several times. There are a few new ice cream places in Gulf Shores, give them a try, no line and good service. Not the selection however.

For the price you pay for one person you could go get a whole carton of Edy's at the store. The wait was very long. The staff was gossiping behind the counter and working rather slowly. I won't be going back.
