Addicting

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.

Amazing frozen custard, especially the chocolate, and really great sundaes. Highly recommended for ice cream fanatics!

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.
