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.

A Must Stop

You just must stop here - that is all there is to it. The ice cream is wonderful, the staff very friendly, and the music the best part. Only open from 1-9pm. It also looks like it has been cleaned up some since we were here in 2013.

I've been here many times over the years but it had been awhile. Went back and the ice cream was still great, like always. My Mom liked it too - her first visit. Try the vanilla praline. Not a huge selection of flavors but that's OK. They are always friendly.

Disco music and lights carry you through the line to order your ice cream. Best of the 2 or 3 options on the island. Shakes and cones were large. Price may be a little high compared to home, but probably worth it.

We've been coming to St. George Island for 11 years. Went to Aunt Ebby's 4 times this past week. Truly excellent as always. Great service though prices seem to keep rising.

This was a nice cool place to have ice cream on a hot day. Not very expensive, and indoor and outdoor seating.

On a hot July afternoon, driving the golf cart up and down the strip doing a little shopping, we stopped in to escape the heat. I ordered a double scoop on Mocha Almond Fudge-- MMMmmmmm..... Really good, and just what we needed on this scorching day!! Plus 2 very friendly younger ladies working with smiles on their face was a... More

The ice cream, atmosphere, and the service was great. It was very expensive. It was $3.75 for a single scoop. There were other places with the same ice cream that was cheaper.

The ice cream is good, but the tradition of going here with my kids really makes this place. Otherwise would probably rate a 3 star.

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... More
