Good Ice Cream

If you are looking for something different in ice cream rather than the big name ice cream stores, look no more. Also serve hot dogs that are great! They have walk up window and drive thru. Ususally a wait in summer but well worth it. Many different kinds of ice cream creations.

Was so excited to try this place because we love frozen custard. We may have just hit it on a bad day but it left a lot to be desired.

We stopped for a quick bite at Shake's for the first time. I had a Chicago dog, hubby had a classic dog. Good hot dogs ! We washed them down with a frozen custard shake. I loved my chocolate with Carmel and hubby enjoyed his chocolate. They were thick creamy and very flavorful. Almost needed a spoon! There is no... More

We found Shake's Custard the day we were leaving Destin and it was a great note to end our vacation on!! The custard was so yummy and the workers friendly. We'll definitely be back the next time we are in Destin!

I've been summering in Destin since I was a kid. Every year we always make a stop to Shakes. It is the best frozen custard (richer than icecream) that I have ever had! My personal favorite is a vanilla cookie dough concrete with pecans. It's right down the road from Big Kahuna's, so save your money at the waterpark and... More

Just visited again after a year and the custard is still as tasty as ever, especially the hot fudge sundaes! It's a little pricey but definitely worth it.

This place is unbelievably delicious and addictive. The workers are so sweet and although the line is sometimes long, they move really fast. I always get the caramel milkshake and it is to die for. I mean it is really THAT GOOD and no matter how long the line it is totally worth the wait. WAAAYY better than anywhere else!!

For anyone on vacation, you have to go to shakes! The frozen custards are so good! Only issue is I have had is with employees there but that is to be expected with teenagers.

This place was great. The service was awesome and they were very willing to answer my questions. They had a pretty long line but were quick moving and friendly while doing it. Amazing place to stop for dessert with great prices and portions. Had to go back for more before we left for home.

If you are in the mood for a thick, creamy sundae with fresh toppings and friendly service, this is the place. The custard is incredible and your choice of toppings is huge. If you like ice cream, go there and experience custard. You'll love it!
