Serving the best scoops on the beach, Aunt Ebby's is a favorite for both locals and visitors. You can eat inside where its cool, or outside on the deck with a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Either way, you'll enjoy great music, delicious ice cream and the friendliest service in town.

Best ice Cream Ever!!!

Okay, so it's hot (95degrees) and it is summer, and we ware at the beach, but I usually don't go upstairs for anything these days. Until I went to Aunt Ebby's for Ice Cream. We camped at the state park on St. George Island and it was after the beach (the best time for ice cream) so you feel less... read more

Everyone goes on and on about this place. It's really just ok. It's the only ice cream place on the island, so I guess that makes it the best. It's been posted for sale the last 10 years we've gone down there.

Aunt Ebby's is a perfect treat for after dinner. We decided to go one night during our stay at about 8 pm. The place was packed! We stood in line and all sampled something different. I can say that the chocolate chip cookie dough, orange sherbet, mint chocolate chip, peanut butter, and cookies and cream are all fabulous choices! Their... More

Stopped in at Aunt Ebby's for some ice cream - our crew each had different flavors and no one was disappointed. We could have gotten by with one scoop but we each had two - ended up tossing some out. I guess double scoop meant a double, double scoop. The seating inside is limited, as is the outside deck. Not... More

Our kids love this place and the generous servings here. We stop here anytime we are on St. George Island. Great place to beat the heat and cool down with one of their tasty treats.

I noticed that Aunt Ebby's was #1 recommended on TripAdvisor so we had to check it out. It's super small so don't count on getting a place to sit unless it is not busy. However, the atmosphere is super cute and the ice cream is wonderful. The portions are huge! A "kiddie" cone is sufficient for an adult.
