After dinner, my family was craving something sweet. Mike’s Ice Cream was a spur of the moment choice and we are so glad we stopped! The butter pecan ice cream and Matt’s chocolate were our choices. We highly recommend them! However, there are also many...other flavors to pick from! In addition, the service was excellent. We highly recommend!More

Great ice cream place!!! Super friendly people and they have some cool t-shirts! And was open after 10 pm so was good way to end the night after mini golf!

Our family stopped in for a cool treat after playing putt-putt around 3pm and found the place nearly empty, which is very nice in these current social distancing conditions. The select of ice cream is vast and they have flavors I’ve never seen. We all...tried different things: a few scoops, a couple of floats, and a banana split to share. Everything was delicious and we almost finished it all, but not quite. The restaurant was very clean and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for delicious ice cream treats in Gulf Shores, AL.More

Kind staff, delicious ice cream, and outdoor seating to enjoy it. Shared a banana split with everything with 2 other people :)

I have been to Matt's Ice Cream place 3 times in the past year. The ice cream is really good. The last time we stopped by, they were out of hot fudge topping. Sad - but that happens sometimes! Try it when you are in...town - it's worth the wait.More

Our family loves ice cream and we enjoy visiting the local places which led us to Matt’s Homemade Alabama Ice Cream. The location was convenient and there was plenty of parking. The employees were friendly and worked quickly. They had a good selection of interesting...flavors which we all enjoyed. I found a coupon online for a free scoop which was an added bonus. We enjoyed Matt’s Ice Cream and would recommend it to anyone visiting Gulf Shores.More

We went to Matt’s after gorging ourselves at the Crazy Cajun! We had cotton candy, banana pudding and butterscotch blast. All were very good, but seemed to have an icy texture to them (like the old ice milk if anyone remembers. They were extremely busy,...so that may have been why. We will give them another shot.More

We enjoyed the selection and the wonderful rich and creamy ice cream. We were the first customer of the day and we enjoyed speaking with the ice cream scooper. She was very engaging. The Blueberry Cheesecake and Key Lime Pie were outstanding. The Blackberry was...amazing and the Butterscotch with all the added flavors (chocolate and peanut butter?) was fantastic. If you want a treat, this is definitely worth a visit!More

Matt's is worth the late night trip to get ice cream. Any flavor you could want and a nice selection of candy/chocolate treats.
