We were looking for an ice cream treat one night and happened upon Shakes. While it is frozen custard done up similar to blizzards, it was so creamy and delicious!! We will be sure to visit again on our next trip to Destin!!

If you are one of the fortunate ones to know what Andy's Frozen Custard is then you will want to visit Shakes. It sets off the road a little bit and isn't as convenient to order as Andy's but the custard is really good. The different creations aren't as plentiful but not sure how long they have been in business.... More

This visit was different....Girl at window a bit rude(no rush or anything, just rude) And the dogs.....well let's just say I hope it was an off day but as bad as the experience was we will be a good while...

Was on a New Years holiday with my son and we ended up getting a shake and/or oreo concrete from this place almost daily! The shakes were delicious, but I was as equally impressed with the customer service of the counter staff. The one gal was always very courteous and friendly. Epitome of service with a smile. Will definitely return... More

If your looking for dessert in the area, consider this joint. Lots of choices and reasonably priced. Chocolate shake was excellent as were several of the other treats the kids ordered. Give it a shot.

Great place for dessert. We stopped there nearly every night while on fall break. A little pricey but very high quality ice cream.

This is a must for ice cream, custard or even gelato lovers!!! The shakes and cones are amazingly creamy and delicious. And they also serve Nathan's hot dogs, so it could be a total lunch spot. You order at the counter and there are tables with umbrellas outside. It's easy to miss as it's not on the main road but... More

If you are looking for an above average milkshake that is way over priced then Shakes is perfect. But despite having the name Shakes these aren't the best shakes in Destin. Still a nice place to stop by, the location isn't too busy so service is fast.

I compare every ice cream to the frozen custard at shakes nothing touches this place been coming here since 2001. I just brought my husband here he says not I know what you been talking about the past 4 years. A concrete was our dinner not kidding amazing could not ask for another meal. Perfect end to perfect day.
