This place has great shakes and I love the "concrete" mixes too. It is fast and convenient with good service.

We noticed this little gem after our failed attempt at a steak dinner; at that point we just wanted food that was edible, plus they had ice cream. When we arrived, they had just stopped serving hot dogs but made one up for us anyway. My boyfriend had a chili cheese dog and said it was great. He also had... More

Had the concrete. The custard is quite good. The extra ingredients, butterfingers and Carmel not so much. Literally almost non existent. So little product it was almost funny. So be cheap and hold back on ingredients and for the 20 cents the owner saved he lost a customer. Penny wise. Dollar foolish. If you want the REAL DEAL and you... More

We made a point of going here after reading all the reviews. It was super yummy...just wish they had a couple more picnic tables so you can enjoy your ice cream (or root beer float in my case).

It seems as though most reviews for Shakes are for their custard. If you haven't tried one of their hot dogs you are missing out. Some of the best chili I have ever had. My favorite is the chili cheese dog with onions and relish. If you want a great dog, try one of these. You will be happy you... More

Nothing hits the spot on a muggy Destin night better than a trip the Shake's Custard. Its a small place and everyone sits outside. Lots of families and older folks.

Very limited choices at Shake's. We prefer Bruster's over Shakes. The quality at Shakes is good, but the variety is limited. We had a caramel, chocolate shake and it was good. They are overpriced.

Steer clear of food and go straight to dessert, you won't be disappointed. The cost is not at all extreme and the freshness and quality is wonderful. Got a Concrete with brownie and oh my were there serious chunks of delicious brownie! The Hubble loved his malt. We aren't even ice cream eaters but will return before our trip ends!

We loved the chocolate malts. The prices were a bit high but worth it for a good malt. (about $6 each for regular sizes)

Steer clear of this overpriced tourist trap. Even my chocolate loving grandchildren would not eat the pricey chocolate custard. Go across the street and get something much better at Chick-Fil-A at a fraction of the cost. It embarrasses me as a local, that this place gouges the tourists even though they are our bread and butter and what keeps Destin... More
