After trying to find a parking place to get Matt's home made ice cream and failing after driving around the parking lot 3 times, we headed to TCBY. I am glad we did! They have everything you can get at an ice cream place with 1/3 the calories of ice cream. And you will not be sacrificing taste. I was... More

Jaqijoy: We are so pleased you had a great experience at our store. When people think yogurt they think the soft tart little container from your fridge not realizing the quality of great taste and benefits of eating frozen yogurt. Many people do not realize the similarity in taste to ice cream and the amount of flavors we carry. TCBY... More

We were even able to find some dairy free treats for those in our group who can't eat milk! So everyone was able to eat a cold treat on a hot day.

We always make a stop at TCBY when we are in Gulf Shores. I love their Turtle sundae. We always find the staff friendly and the place clean.

We didn't actually get anything here as when we walked up to the door there was a hand written sign that said cash only. Not sure if that is a good business prop but no one in my party had cash so we turned around and left. Perhaps this business should rethink the cash only policy.

I'm truly sorry you were not able to get a treat when you visited our TCBY. The note on the door should have also included "the internet is down in the area therefore we are only accepting cash at the moment". We absolutely take credit cards and have for 24 years. We hope you will return and enjoy The Country's... More

We hit the drive trough after lunch. We got two chocolate milk shakes and one strawberry bananza smoothie. They were good. They were typical of any other ice cream shop. It was nice to be able to go through the drive through. Most ice cream places don't offer that.

Went after dinner one evening. It was a long line but worth the wait. I just got a chocolate waffle cone and it was perfect!

After dinner treat for the kids. Nice variety of ice cream and toppings. Kids loved it. Not the traditional TCBY I'm used too though.

It's what I remember growing up in small town GA ~ Delicious yogurt you can't find anywhere else - You can't eat it every day (or really even every week) but after a day @ the beach, it's the "cherry on top".
