We had a shake from here on 5 of the 6 nights of our vacation. I loved the location-right across from Sundestin resort. The cake batter milkshake was amazing. So was the blueberry shake.

Custard stand across the street from where we spent the week was terrific. Great fast service and fast moving line and service make this a special local ice cream stop. You get to choose size, additions and style, shake, concrete, sundae, etc. Kids loved the junior size concrete and I thought the chocolate malt was once of the best shakes... More

You can always find something different at Shakes. The drive through will be wrapped around the block so I always park and wlk up. Much faster. You'll find something different and tasty for sure.

We usually have a "no-chain" rule on vacations, but with Shake's, we just couldn't say no! We literally stopped by every single day we were in the area! The Shake's Bopper & the Pink Poodle were our go-to's. They've got plenty of outdoor seating and are right smack in the middle of the main strip through town.

we always stop by shakes for dessert when we're in Destin. It is basically frozen custard but is a great treat on a really hot day or evening. We usually get blueberry or raspberry malts and they are always excellent.

The cake batter milkshake was to die for - try it! Seemed a bit on the expensive side, but it was worth it.
