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

The custard is yummy. The fruit was delicious. Staff was nice. I meant to make a second trip the Pink Poodle but never did...there's always next year! It rained so I didn't get to take a pic at the wiener spoon thingy but that's on the list for next year too.

The employees were very friendly and the custard was quite good. We went twice in the five days we were in Destin. Definitely don't need more than a small! I'd happily go again.

I tried to get some custard the whole time I was there. Finally we made it over there late on Sunday, and aside being a bit pricey (over $4 for smallest size), it was good. Not great. I'm from Tn and we have a place called Rita's that is perfection. I may have been expecting too much.

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. However, I kept going back to the cake batter shake. Parking is a bit tight, so if it looks full just park on the side of... More

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.
