I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!

Truly a great place for a frozen custard! Regular ice cream is green with envy at the rich flavor using a custard base gives delights like the Pink Poodle. My favorite is a Chocolate Malt with extra malt. yummmm

Typical Ice Cream parlor. Ample flavors and samples. It's a good place to get what you are looking for, though it's not anything over the top. I'd go back.

Ice cream was good and they were not afraid to charge for it. The server was OK but really not engaging for us being the only customers here. We left and said good bye but could not find her.

When we went the soft serve chocolate suddenly didn't work. We did enjoy the ice cream we bought though. My husband got hard serve chocolate in a cup with nuts, I had a warm brownie with vanilla ice cream, and chocolate and Carmel syrups, and we got a push-up to share with our daughter. They try to serve you as... More

A variety of ice cream flavors and products served with a smile. The ice cream is Edy's. The location is very accessible when heading for the shore.

After pizza at Papa Rocco's we thought we were full (and we were!) but found room for a creamy bowl of ice cream that we enjoyed on the deck. Taste treat!

At least once during my family's annual trip to the Beach we finish our night with Scoops. Cannot go wrong the ice cream is served with generous portions and quickly. The quick nature of the service is important because the place is always crowded and the crowd is the downside because of limited parking. Best practice is to drop off... More

Yum yum yum! I mean, ice cream at the beach is a wonderful treat. The clerk was very friendly. The ice cream was sooooooo good. The dining area outside is fun and took me back to being a kid and getting a treat. Enjoy! I sure did 🍦

We visited Scoops in June and again in October while visiting Gulf Shores. They have excellent sundaes. In October they had pumpkin ice cream that had a great flavor! Give it a try!

Everyone in my family loves this place, but I don't really know why. It's average ice cream at best. If you have to have ice cream in town, just run to Wal-Mart and grab some, you'll pay less and have the same quality.
