Yummy!

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!

Don't miss Banana Thursdays... We've been visiting Bruster's for years on our visits to Destin and love going with our friends on Banana Thursdays. Bring your own banana and they'll make it into a split and "split" the cost! They've got great ice cream and service has always been friendly.

We stopped here after dinner for a sweet treat and to our surprise there was no line! The ice cream was ok but not mind blowing. For the price, the amount of ice cream/toppings in my sundae I was satisfied. I enjoy supporting local businesses on vacation rather than your everyday chains so I recommend you stop by Bruster's!

Love all the different, unusual flavors of ice cream. Our favorites are the key lime pie and the buckeye. Great homemade ice cream. You'll want to go multiple times to try all the great flavors.

This is the best ice cream ever!!!!! We go here every year and it has never disappointed us. The peanut butter shake and the warm apple dumpling are out of this world
