So good! I love the strawberry freeze with custard scoop. This is unlike anything I have ever tried before!

I don't know what all the negative reviews are all about because we enjoyed this place while in Destin and made multiple stops while visiting. First off you are in a tourist town so the prices are going to reflect that. It's amazing to me that people will pay $200+ a night for a hotel room and will walk over... More

Shake's makes the best sundaes, shakes, banana splits, anything with custard in it! I love the Bopper, my daughter loves the tutti-fruity banana split. A little pricey, but do it while on vacation.

You'll want to visit Shakes early in your vacation, because you'll surely want to come back. Great treat for dessert or to just beat the heat. Milkshakes are A+.

Great little frozen custard stand. Fast service. Didn't know they had hot dogs too, we just went on a last minute late night ice cream run, but maybe next time. Hit the spot. Right next to a Waffle House. Sits back from the road a little so keep your eyes open for it. Pokemon stop for the littles, too ;)

We've driven by Shake's for years and finally decided to stop. The kids each got to build their own creation from a bunch of different toppings and loved it so much they demanded a repeat visit before we headed home. Totally worth a stop if you're hot and looking for a treat to cool off!

Tasty frozen custard . Small vanilla with hot fudge. Thought $4.50 was a lot for a junior size. Just ok. Can't afford to come back.

We seek out custard on vacation. It's been sort of a tradition from when I was a child. We found this via trip advisor on Aug 8, 2016. Wow! This is probably the best custard I've ever had. And I've tried lot of places all over the southeast and Midwest. Certainly better than Andy's.

Each year, we vacation in Panama City Beach and make the drive several nights for dessert at Shake's. The chocolate shake with peanut butter is my favorite this year. This place never disappoints.

We have a Shake's in our hometown and we are loyal and repeat customers. We usually drive to Shake's in Destin when staying at Santa Rosa Beach...it's that good. Appreciate the friendliness of the staff here on the night we visited even though it was a hot and busy night. Will return again and again for our usual: Oreo concrete,... More
