“Not your typical custard place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Shake's is a real cut above the typical custard place. The ice cream is good with a lot of different flavors to make sundaes and special servings. More like the good old fashion home town ice cream custard even though in the middle of a tourist area. Well worth the visit.
Only draw back is there is no place to eat it except in your car or at a few tables around the building. And on hot humid Florida days, that can be a problem…
Would still rate this place a "don't miss" if you like good custard, sundaes and banana splits.

“Save your money. Go to Sonic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We ordered the frito bowl and the dog bowl. The chili was so spicy the kids could not eat it. I personaly like spicy. Dont like 6-7 bucks for a bowl of chili the kids cant eat. Shakes were good but plan on waiting in line and paying 4 bucks for junior shake. I dont think they will lower there prices antime soon. The neon lights attract tourist like a swarm of flies.
