“Best Ice cream on the beach”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We love the ice cream at Scoops! A great treat for a late night time snack. Just a short walk from the beach. Lots of flavors. Ice cream is smooth and creamy. Who can ever resist yummy ice cream!

“Many choices and reasonable prices”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

My husband and daughters could not believe the many options of flavors at Scoops! Plus your options of cones: sugar cones, regular cones, waffle cones, dipped waffle cones, etc. There were also other options there besides ice cream, including shakes, frozen chocolate dipped bananas, etc. I liked that it didn't break the piggy bank to eat here.

“Late night cold snack”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

We were out searching for a late night snack, after a Long Hot day at the beach, and we discovered Scoops was all lite up and a crowd of people were storming the door. Our mouths began to water as we entered and we were quickly served by a very friendly staff. We enjoyed our ice cream cones and flurry out on the covered porch. There were several benches and a cool breeze to go along with our cool treats!! We enjoyed our Late night snack!!

“The only thing "olde" is the ice cream.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

They should not advertise themselves as an "olde fashion" ice cream shop. There's nothing old fashioned about it - it's Edy's ice cream. You can buy it in any grocery store, and it will be a lot cheaper. It's overpriced for an ice cream shop, without even considering the fact that it's Edy's. It's right on 59, and there are cars streaming by, so there's not much atmosphere to speak of. The prices on the menu aren't clear, and the service isn't very good either. There are much nicer ice cream shops in Gulf Shores - don't waste your time and money.
