We come here 90% of the time we are in Gulf Shores. Matt's the other 10 and always in the off season. Would give it 5 stars but occasionally their ice cream is kinda soft and they sometimes close early.

We walked here twice during our week long stay. Very cute decor. They have a lot of flavors to choose from. My son loved the doughnut ice cream sandwich. It is reasonably priced and the line moved fast.

I feel sorry for the people that gave this place 5 stars. That means they don't have anywhere with good ice cream where they live. Good for the waistline I guess. The idea was so cool. The taste was bland, weird, and not exciting. First of all, if you're going to specialize in donut sandwiches, at least sell quality donuts.... More

They sell quality ice cream in a simple, family type environment at reasonable prices. A welcome change from the glitzy yuppie brands that sell hard ice cream that we're all used to. Dunno if they have 31 flavors but they've got enough variety to satisfy virtually anyone Oh, they have "donut Sundae" too. It's exactly how it sounds and it's... More

They have a decent selection of ice cream flavors and the prices are about what you would expect for a place like this, not too bad =)

This is the cutest place, tucked away, but SO delicious! We visited twice and I wish we could have visited 1,000 more times! We will definitely be back! The Krispy Kreme donut is a must try!

My family and I loved our stop at Island Ice Cream. My waffle bowl sundae was delicious. The staff was friendly and quick. We would definitely recommend.
