Great ice cream

I had been driving around this place so many time until this time. I stop by with my family and got some apple pie with ice cream and I have to say It was great.

Ice cream was great. Unique flavors. The downfall is there is only outdoor seating which isn't optimal for a huge ice cream one in the Florida summer

It is so nice to know that they will give your dog a cup of ice cream to keep them from begging from you. We always stop at least once before heading back home.

We are back after 12 years. We were pleasantly surprised, still the same great friendly service and delicious ice cream - different location. You can taste test as many flavors as you like. For the banana split lovers, on Thursday are half price if you byo banana.

The ice cream was amazing! The portions were more than generous. The Butterfinger Blast/ Blizzard treat had all kinds of Butterfinger pieces in it. The staff was very friendly and kind. There was a line ten minutes before closing time. That tells you how good it is!!

All the ice cream is made on the premises and they offer a huge variety of flavors, plus Nathan Hot Dogs, sundaes, malts, etc I had Almond Chocolate Coconut and it was delicious.

We shopped all day long so thought we'd treat ourselves on the way back to the condo. Great idea! The sundaes were great. The line was around the building and only one person was working but he never lost his cool and seemed to have a great attitude as he chipped away at the line. Well worth the wait!

My birthday cake was fresh and delicious. If you want an ice cream cake for your birthday and you are in Destin this is what I recommend. We had trouble finding a place that did ice cream cakes but am glad we found Bruster's. My favorite is B&R but this is a close 2nd.
