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.

Scoops is always a great stop! We went twice in one week! In October, it's not quite as crowded so that helps. Depending on who makes your cone, the sizes can vary...but a single is really about two scoops. If you just want a little, get a kiddie dip. They have a wide variety of soft serve and hard packed...

We scream for Ice Cream, it was hot, the traffic was horrible but there was Scoops, we stopped and had a double serving of Peach ice cream and sat on their porch and relaxed. Nice selection of flavors and it is fairly priced. The young lady that waited on us was pleasant and gave a fair portion for the price

Best caramel Sunday I've had in a long time! Served Ben & Jerry's ice cream - GMO free! So you can eat good quality ice cream and make a consumer statement all at once.

Scoops is just ice cream with a few other menu items such as beverages - but it's so worth the stop. They serve Edy's and have some standard flavors and some unique ones as well. Once we discovered it, we stopped almost every evening after dinner. Seems they are always busy and we were there in Feburary, which is fairly... More
