I just can't get enough

I love Bruster's. The staff was so nice and friendly. I like that we had a nice place to sit and enjoy our ice cream. The ice cream was delicious and really hit my sweet tooth. We will be back.

I ordered coconut almond and sea salt caramel something-er-other in a waffle cone and both were delish. My infant daughter was given a free baby cone that she was super excited about. Loved this place. Just realized today it was a chain when I passed another.

This place is delicious. My husband and I were in the mood for some ice cream on a recent trip to Destin, and we're so glad we found this place! The ice cream is made fresh daily and it is SO good! They have a ton of flavors to choose from. I had the chocolate peanut butter buckeye and birthday... More

Great place to grab a cone for the family and enjoy and after dinner treat. Check the hours before going - we had to go back another day. Employees are very friendly.

Second visit here this week. The salted Carmel with toffee is worth every calorie. Good sized portions and worth the higher prices. We also visited shakes while here. Brusters is definitely better.

We each got the ice cream/custard in various flavors and they were all yummy! Make a great after dinner dessert visit or a mid-day cool-down snack. Located conveniently right off the main Highway 98. A few tables with umbrellas to sit at outside.

They might be good at ice cream. I don't know, as I hated the stale bun and "aged" hot dog. Don't buy one.. The sign proclaims great hot dogs. Not here. Won't eat here again.

Banana Splits are half price, Thursday nights if you bring your own banana. Ice Cream is good and reasonably priced. A little noisey right of US98, but still a good deal

Every time I go to Destin I have to go to Brusters. They have the best ice cream. I always get the buckeye or the peanut butter. They put actual scoops of real peanut butter in. So good!
