I found this place on the Internet as I was vacationing in the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area. I love the unusual variety of ice cream favors such as key lime, peanut butter cheesecake, death by chocolate and much more! I had the peanut butter cheesecake in a waffle cone. This is real premium ice cream. Best I ever had! Glad... More

Again, this was our first trip to Destin. Bruster's was recommended by a family member who literally tried every ice cream place in Destin. She was spot on! This is the best ice cream I have ever eaten. I love butter pecan and I could actually taste the butter. It was amazing. A must when you visit Destin. Can't say... More

Great ice cream. Everyone raved on each of their flavors. Only downside was the girl who helped us had quite the attitude. I think she may have been having a hard day. Three was an extremely long line and she was the only one working birth getting ice cream and cashing out. Would have better rating if not for that

A must stop for ice cream. Good selection and good prices. Seems to always be busy. We stop here at least once when visiting the Destin area.

We were told they make their ice cream daily on site. Family owned business. Very tasty. Many flavors, many types to choose from. We go there every year on vacation. its tradition. Great central location on 98.

My kids, ages 13 and 11, absolutely love this place. I am not a big ice cream eater but they definitely are. Every night after dinner, they want to head here for dessert. The ice cream is a little pricey but they are huge servings. If I had a suggestion it would be to find a flavor that could be... More

Everything looked so good! The white turtle ice cream was fabulous! Kids all loved their flavors. Maybe a little pricey but worth it.

Coming from texas, we love our Blue Bell, but this place is amazing. Made daily, the ice cream is incredible. Peanut butter cheesecake was delicious, banana split can be shared, huge and yummy.

Kids and wife loved it. The boys had cotton candy ice cream. They loved it. Wife had a peanut butter and chocolate ice cream that she loved. I split a large vanilla shake with our daughter. It was good but not special. Then again, it was a vanilla shake... They gave the 2 year old a free baby cone and... More
