To my amazement they had lobster ice cream with actual chunks of lobster in it. Since I was trying everything seafood on our trip I gave that a... More

We stopped here for dessert. We had raspberry, watermelon and lemon sorbet. The servings are very large here. I had a small serving and I should have ordered the kids portion. It was very good.

Great ice cream with both hard and soft serve. The selection was over 30 flavors and the chocolate dipped cones were amazing. The chocolate treats are endless but weren't what we were there for. Maybe the next time we are in town because we are definitely coming back.

So many ice cream places to choose from but reading the reviews brought us here. I had the choc chip cookie dough and Oreo- both were delicious!!! A little on the expensive side for ice cream but definitely worth it!

Conveniently located in the center of town off a major side street as you get off the ferry. Smooth, soft and tasty. 8 scoops of vanilla and milk with a frappe..unbelievable! Worth every bit of what you pay. You can't beat there frappes! This is a must visit if you are an ice cream freak! Flavored are varied and many.... More

Great candy\ice cream combo shop. If you are traveling with friends who all have different sweet-tooth needs, this is probably the place to go. Tons of different flavors of ice cream and a whole wall of candy and chocolates to choose from. As with everything on the Vineyard, it is definitely pricey, but worth the treat if you love your...

We stopped by this place after dinner and found them to have excellent ice cream with large portions. One family member said they wished there were more and larger pecans in the butter pecan, but still enjoyed the flavor.

Five stars for the delicious ice cream, but even more so for excellent handling of food allergy! We got ice cream here yesterday. All the flavors were delicious. Well worth the line that started at the door. (There is even a lobster flavor with REAL pieces of lobster, but we were afraid too try that out.) What really impressed us... More

I LOVE ice cream. Especially coffee. Especially coffee with chocolate. The mud pie is a mixture of creamy coffee ice cream, gooey fudge and oreos. This was one of the best ice creams I've ever had. The texture and flavor was amazing and you got a lot of ice cream for the price. There were plenty of other yummy flavors... More
