We saw this place while riding the bus back to our Airbnb. Good custard but a little pricey. They have a great selection of flavors.

Prices are a little high, but if you want really good frozen custard with a variety of concoctions, this place is definitely worth the wait that will probably have. This place is deservedly popular - give it a try!

Went with the kids it was good frozen custard. My advice is to try different ones some are hit or miss. Overall it was a good treat for the kids. Can be pricey.

I gave this place a 4 because the girls working were very grouchy. I would think serving custard and ice cream would include more friendly and service-oriented people. The custard was good and good selection. We had the "Blackhawks" something and it was really good.

Love Scooters - the concretes are delicious! The owners are wonderful people too. Well worth going out of your way to have their custard.

Stumbled upon this little hole-in-the-wall shop and was not disappointed. I've been let down by other custard places due to the custard not being that creamy -- almost icy. But Scooter's was very smooth and rich! Not quite on par with Rita's, but nonetheless delicious....More

Vanilla with Reeses is my favorite. Strawberry concrete, just divine. Chocolate malt, the stuff of legend. Perfect spot after pizza and wine. Long live Scooters Frozen Custard!
