I always order a banana split. They have peanut butter ice cream and I use that instead of vanilla for my banana splits. Their shakes are great also. Love this place.

We like the ice cream at Scoops so much that we go out of our way to go there. It is just so rich and creamy. It doesn't hurt that the prices are reasonable as well. They recently raised their prices but it's still very...More

They have a good variety of flavors. It isn't too expensive. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. We went on a night when it wasn't crowded.

Easy to get to. Never crowded. Selection of flavors a bit limited but sufficient. Good choice of order sizes.

Small, very crowded place, with very little parking. Ice cream was really good. Ladies behind the counter were working quickly and efficiently to keep the line moving and the young lady working the floor cleaning tables was quick to get a table clean as soon...More

This is just Edy's ice cream which you can get in the grocery store, but the sundaes you can build with it are great. You get to choose you ice cream, and the wet and dry toppings. I had the coconut/pineapple ice cream with pineapple...More

There are nuts in many of their specialties, I can't speak for Scoops, but I think there is a high risk of cross contamination.
