We have been visiting Martel's for years because their homemade ice cream is so good. I love orange pineapple and mocha chip. My husband is partial to chocolate and ginger. Also, you can purchase half-gallons to take home for $7.00. More recently, we decided to try their Italian sandwiches. You can choose your meat...ham or bacon or even chicken salad...to... More

I don't live very far from this location, so it seems I am up there once or twice or perhaps even three times per month. Ice cream is made on site, there's a good variety of flavors, and some special flavors are always available. Just know that they except cash only. If you're not from the area, this is one... More

I almost always get the chocolate peanut butter or the coffee Oreo but there are many more flavors to choose from. Reasonably priced and delicious as always. Keep up the good work guys!

The bomb! We tried this homemade ice cream at the Lobster Claw And Pound and got hooked. The ice cream is so creamy, large selection and super friendly service. Thank you and yes, we will be back.

I visited Martel's two days after my visit to Fielders Choice. However this was over a week ago and much food & ice cream passed my lips in the meantime. (Therefore can't remember flavours enjoyed). What I know without a shadow of doubt was my overriding memory is that despite the portions being smaller than Fielders Choice the quality &... More

On our last night here in town, my wife and I took a walk down the road to get some ice cream here. It was awesome. We really enjoyed the feel and ambiance of this place. It's a cool 50's vibe with a neat jukebox.

We stopped off here the other evening for a treat and we were not disappointed. The staff are all very friendly and has a fun atmosphere about the place. The portions are huge but tasty!! I had a small black raspberry with Oreo sugar come (with rainbow jimmies of course!) and that was a bit of a struggle to eat.... More
