We went on a spur of the moment trip one night after being out shopping. I had heard that another ice cream joint on up in Destin was really good, but we were staying in Miramar and had no interest in driving that far. I was super impressed with our ice cream choices. Will definitely go back.

It is outdoor seating with plenty of picnic tables. Brusters does tend to stay busy- however, the 5 ordering windows get icecream to you quickly. The line on the right of the building tends to be a longer wait because many people stop here and do not realize that there are other order windows available. There are lots of unique... More

Great after dinner treat! Be prepared to wait a few minutes to get served. I had the chocolate ice cream with chocolate flakes and it was so good! They offer free kid cones for kids under 40 inches.

We ordered the hot fudge sundaes. We were not disappointed. The waffle cups were yummy, sweet, but not overpowering the ice cream. The ice cream was good, so was the hot fudge. This is an outdoor restaurant with a window to order. No drive- thru. There was only one person making the orders today, so the service was slow, and... More

Stopped here last night for some great ice cream. Be prepared to wait but it is so good it will be worth it. I had the mint chocolate chip waffle cone and the hubby had a chocolate shake. Definitely make a stop here.

Each time we visit Destin we always visit Bruster's numerous times. Often there are long lines in the evening but they move quickly. Big assortments of flavors. Peanut butter buckeye is a favorite. Younger kids get a free baby cone as well. We did try the hotdogs as well this time and they were good as well.

Are so very glad we had room tonight for a trip to Bruster's Ice Cream! We have been wanting to go but have just been too full every night this vacation. But, the waffle cones are so good! The ice cream is great but having a bite of cone with almost every bite of ice cream really makes it yummy!... More

Ok I love ice cream so I've had my fair share. This may be one of the best ever. It's made fresh daily. The buckeye chocolate ice cream hAd so many buckeyes I never had a bite without several. If you want a banana split you can bring your own banana for $ off. Sounds weird but whatever works. It... More

So good. Between everyone in our group, we about six flavors. My favorite was the peanut butter and chocolate. Delicious. I liked that it wasn't overly sweet. We all finished our food (which is rare) and didn't regret it! :) Look forward to visiting here again when in Destin!

We had a craving for some ice cream while we were vacationing in Destin. This is the place to get it! The first time we went Barb and I got cones. It was so good we went the next night and Barb got a milk shake while I got another cone. Very good Ice cream!
