Best Ice Cream I've seen in a long time

Some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Found it on reviews - its a local favorite and it deserves it. Made a special point of going back during my vacation. Only issue is the portion sizes are a bit large.

Bruster's has the best ice cream. It is a great outside location that isn't too far from the beach. There are many choices on their menu.

We stopped by tonight after passing this place several times and noticing the line. So glad we stopped the homemade ice cream was delicious. We tried four different flavors and they were all great. We had shakes, a sundae,and a cone. The young lady waiting on us was so nice and sweet while my daughter struggled to make a choice... More

Stopped by after lunch to cool off with some ice cream. Totally worth the stop. Each of the flavors that we tried on two visits while in Miramar Beach were great. Quickly greeted and served, very polite. Great place.

Great homemade ice cream! Expect lines though. We went at 9:30 and waited in line about 20 minutes. Ice cream was wonderful! I had the chocolate mud slide (needs more marshmallows) and my wife had the butter pecan. Awesome!

Family wanted ice cream. Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. The ice cream was definitely delicious and home made. I notice the sign for the hot dogs and decided to give it a try. The hot hog was just another hit dog.

Some very interesting flavor combinations. Free sprinkled "kids cones" for the really little kids, which were perfect! My family loved it!
