SOOOO FANTASTIC

If you have never had Bruster's ice cream you are missing out. the peanut butter sundae is AWESOME!!! I don't know why they took the only one in memphis away. Now we can't get it unless we find a sate while we are on vacation to eat there. I would recommend their ice cream to anyone and any flavor!!

So tasty! I want more. We had the vanilla sundae with hot fudge and peanut butter cups. My 2 year old got a free kids cone which thrilled her to no end!

We were there for spring break two times as we fell in love with the variety and taste. The first visit was late in the evening and even though they were getting stuff cleaned for close, they were nice and didn't rush us or complain that we were there. The chocolate was really good. We could have had cake, ice... More

Such good ice cream!! It's kind of pricey though, but if you have small kids they can get a free baby cone of any flavor if they're under 40 inches tall. Which was great for us because that's all our little one would eat anyway!

Super creamy and very tasty ice cream. I got a 2 scoop dish of ice cream (Peanut Butter/Chocolate Buckeye and Almond Coconut Chocolate) that was excellent. Many choice available. Their shakes are super thick and tasty as well.

Its probably some of the best ice cream we've ever had. Chocolate Raspberry Truffle is awesome! The brownie sundae is great as well.

Average tasting ice cream with expensive price tag. There is one night, I think Thursday, if you bring your own banana, you get a banana split for half price.

Looking for a good ice cream joint in the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area??? Look no further. Bruster's has a great, yet organized selection and the ice cream is very well made. They'll let you sample anything and the portions are humongous! Go now. What are you waiting for?

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.
