We met the owner and he is great! The service is wonderful! The smoothness of the ice cream is so good! The hot dogs looked good but had to pass this time! We go each year to have ice cream during our stay!

We enjoyed our treat. The quality was very good and a nice size serving. Very fresh tasting. We had a Sundae with nuts, crispy pecans and nice serving.

We always visit Shake's at least twice while in Destin. The Bopper sundae is our favorite even though we ventured and tried the Pumpkin sundae this time (yummy!). Their salted pecans are perfect on any of their custard.

I never pass on Shakes. We vacation usually twice a year at Destin. I make sure I don't miss Shakes. Great ice cream treats at great prices. My lady loved her first visit. I looked away for just a second and she was licking the bottom before I even had a chance....that's how good shakes is

My family of 4 ordered shakes and shelled out almost 30$ for nothing better than dairy queen could have done for 10$. No parking, slow service. Pass next time

Frozen Custard with things mixed in. Also has hot dogs. Quick service - it's drive through or walk up. Good dessert option.

Good but not fantastic. Between 3 and 4 stars. About like a Culver's on quality. Not as good as Ted Drewe's in St Louis, for example. Just your average concrete custard. 2 tables outside so you probably will be eating in your car. However, a cold treat on a hot day.

Love this place. It is just like going to fritzis in st Charles Missouri. Great service and great ice cream. Sat outside on a nice night and hung out. They had a nice and steady crowd the whole time so everyone knows it's good.

Good friendly service. Good custard with many options. You are not able to sit inside so that was a bummer especially on a super hot day.

I love this place! They have the best custard around town. I'm a plain vanilla gal but there are tons of mixes to make. They also have great hot dogs. This is a drive thru, no inside seating. They do have space outside but very limited. The prices are a little higher but well worth it. I usually get mine... More
