Best custard

We love Shake's custard! The Key Lime Pie concrete is a tasty, summer flavor and one of my favorites. Chocolate and vanilla is a classic favorite as well. The employees are always polite and courteous.

We were directed to Shake's from my daughter who had eaten there before. We were encouraged by the constant line of people waiting at the front window every time we drive by. We skipped the long line by taking the drive thru window. We tried three "Concrete's" with various flavors. I'm an ice cream lover, but custard is scarce in... More

We were looking for something with a lot of flavors and found this to be sort of like a limited dairy queen. They did have custards which we didn't try. Servers were friendly (you order from a window) but I wasn't

I can't imagine a trip to Destin without a couple of visits to Shakes. The six year old in me demands that every time we go, I must stop there early in the trip, and order a large chocolate shake, take a few sips, then stick it in the freezer. For the next week, I then get to enjoy the... More

Our family visited Shake's for the first time two years ago, and we were excited to go back! If you are a frozen custard "enthusiast," you will love this place! The custard is rich and creamy and just amazing. We generally just get vanilla cones (the custard is great plain), but they do have shakes, sundaes, and "concrete" mixers available,... More

the custard mix thingy (blueberry) we got after dinner definitely hit the top 10 desserts of all time. the location is just off the main road and i would have never found this place except our hotel was directly across the street.

If you have been to a Shake's, this is consistent with their shakes and ice cream treats. Great after a hot afternoon on the beach!

If you like GOOD custard this place rocks. Great sundaes and shakes. They give you this super wide, super stout straw with shakes that is perfect. The salted pecans with some of the sundaes make the perfect flavor profile for somebody wanting something sweet but not cloying. Drive through or walk up service. Very casual and good location with easy... More

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".
