Nothing unique or different, just good Edy's ice cream and decent service. Good selection, fair service, average price.

The ice cream shop is on a busy strip of road in Gulf Shores with lots of restaurant and souvenir shops. The parking lot is tiny and the restaurant across will have you towed if you park in their lot. Scoops is in a very small building. They consistently have a line although not bad wait times. There are very... More

Was expecting really good ice cream but it was sooooo sweet that it wasn't even frozen good. I had always seen long lines at this place but it was the worst ice cream I have ever eaten!

Don't get me wrong... Scoops is great. I've never had bad ice cream or bad service and I have been coming here for years. Here is the reason for the 1 star deduction. Scoops should have moved years ago. There is very little parking which causes a headache and the lines are often out the door. Again, making parking a... More

Great local ice cream place. It was nice to find a local ice cream shop that had great tasting ice cream with great service. My son couldn't make up his mind on what he wanted, and they were very patient with him. Recommend!

Edy's brand ice cream is served at this ice cream store. Good ice cream and lots of flavors. Generous portions (a single is two scoops, a double is four scoops, and so on). Close to several late night activities (putt-putt, etc). Parking is challenging but it's worth a visit.

Took the family out for ice cream and had great service and good quality ice cream treats. Nice table outside to eat them before getting back in the car. We went after dinner and it was very busy but the line moved fast.

This place makes delicious sundaes with Edy's icecream. You can get pecans or peanuts on your sundae. They aren't stingy with toppings, either! It's a must visit. We drive from Perdido Key just to eat there.
