This little gem of an ice cream shop sets the standard for what a family owned businesss should be. You walk in to a clean inviting atmosphere to be greated with friendly smiles. They offer a quality product (Hershey's Ice Cream) with lots of great flavors and toppings. They serve a generous portion at a fair price. They are definitely... More

Great selections of Hershey's Ice Cream. Prior to going to Scammell's we had not had Hershey's Ice Cream - now it is our favorite but we cannot find it at home. Even though it was early in the season, all of the ice cream was fresh. The owner was welcoming, friendly, helpful and provided samples of flavors we were interested... More

Poor reviewers are idiots. Hershey's Ice cream is always fresh here unlike some places nearby. Atmosphere is great. I'd like to slap the people who said it syrupy... what in the world?!?!

What can I say about 50 flavors of Hershey brand ice cream. Friendly staff. The server- scooped even made balloon swords for the kids. Crazy comic book wall art and movie poster ceiling art. Visit Zeus the dog next door in the surf shop. Oh yeah, ten ice cream is excellent.

Finally! An ice cream shop that gives you a fair and heaping scoop of ice cream for your dollar! Great people, great ice cream - I go here every year and won't go anywhere else. Did I mention that they sing as they serve? Go after 6:00 PM and hear a song as they scoop!

The ice cream is pretty good... but Matt was the highlight - he's very friendly and funny. It's gotta be the beard! We were there during April when he was the only one working and we were one of the few customers. He thoroughly entertained us for 20 minutes on our first visit. Our kids loved hanging there so much... More

We found this by the Trip Advisor ratings. We had gone to dinner and decide we would go for ice cream after. The ice cream was great and visiting with Mr Doggie (can't remember his name) was fun. My son had a large banana split and it was large. My husband had a turtle sundae as he does when we... More
