I love frozen custard

On our fsmily vacation to Destin decided to treat ourselves to frozen custard and found Shakes. Everyone really liked their choices and the service was very fast. It is a little bit pricey as we spent over $34 for six of us. But what the heck, "we're on vacation".

There is always a ton of people there in the evening getting their sugar fix! We normally go through the drive through. Seems to be less of a wait. The custard is amazing. Definitely worth the wait!

Heavenly angel was what we got. It was refreshing and pretty good. The line is a little harder to drive thru with all the traffic, but overall it's pretty good for the money.

If you like custard, you are going to love this place. They have food items as well but the star of the show is the custard for sure. You don't want to miss this one. Be ready to stand in line because this place is the real deal.

My family & I stopped here while on vacation one night in Destin. The black cow & chili cheese combo was our meal for the night! We enjoyed the food and shakes. The staff wasn't very friendly but we did not wait long for our food to be prepared. We sat outside at one of the tables. There isn't any... More

Good shakes and ice cream. Service usually pretty quick. They stay busy during spring and summer. It's only a free standing building and no seating inside. There are benches outside to use. Definitely worth going.

Every time I'm in Destin I have to make a trip (or multiple trips) to Shake's. Seriously delicious and addicting. My favorite treat is the Chocolate Cow... basically a blended Coca Cola float... so good. Service is always quick and friendly. Looking forward to my next trip!

This place was the Jam for some good old fashioned milk shakes! I loved every bite! I loved the choices of improvements to the standard "just another milkshake" as I loaded mine up with peanut butter cups and hot fudge. Perfect ending to a date night dinner!

Best shakes in the history of the world. Any flavor...you will not be disappointed. My wife and I got mediums last time so we could enjoy them over a couple days, just threw them in the fridge overnight. We would travel 5 hours just to get a concrete from here. It's nice because it's walk up or drive through.
