The frozen custard is good here, but on the pricey side. They have great oldies playing and it is enjoyable to sit at the tables and enjoy the music and frozen custard. It is a nice place for a little break.

While meandering about, my lady companion and thought to take a break and taste something cool. Here, there's a variety to choose, but more importantly they have, as I have not witnessed any other, FF & LF versions in hard pack or soft serve. Thus for the healthy conscious individual, the fat free and low fat options allows you to... More

Small business doing ice cream justice! Fair prices. Best banana split ever. Scoops has it all from frozen bananas to shakes delivered with a smile.

A good number of flavors to choose. The almond praline is delicious and so is the black cherry. Also tried the raspberry sorbet and was so glad I did. It was the best I've had.

This shop is tiny. The ice cream was Edy's. I can buy that at the grocery store. I don't remember the price, but the serving size was average. It's an okay place to get ice cream if you want something fast; however, there was not much of a selection.

My husband and I stopped at Scoops with my children and parents in early October. We had a great time, and the ice cream was good. We would have preferred *real* homemade ice cream to Edy's but it did the job!

The almond praline. I need not say anymore. We were in GS for 3nights and 4 days. Yes everynight we had the cone with 4 scoops of almond praline ice cream. I don't care that we spent roughly 7$ on a cone. Totally worth it!!!

This was the only ice cream shop we found open this time of the year, and we were not disappointed. Edy's ice cream by the scoop with a large variety of toppings. The menu is large but not overwhelming. Soft serve is also available in a couple of flavors. A few tables are available inside this small ice cream shop.... More

Good service and ice cream was tasty. This was the first ice cream place we have went to in AL so I don't really how anything to compare it to. If you go try the Fizz.
