Best ice cream ever

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

Always a lot of people here. Great menu selection to please everyone. I had the Turtle Sundae in a Waffle Cone. Best sundae and waffle cone I have ever had. Everyone in our family enjoyed their selections.

Good menu. Good prices. The shakes were delicious. The only issue I had was the solid ice cream "concrete" was super liquids and needed to be refrozen once I returned to the condo just a mile away.

There is a large variety of flavors to choose. We wish we could try them all. The ice cream is fresh and excellent texture. It is better than Shake's and more options. Enjoy
