Mullens is back to its former glory! We enjoyed our ice cream and plan on returning for lunch soon. Their ice cream cakes look like just the item for a special birthday coming soon.

This longtime, wonderful Watertown landmark is CLOSED. There is a rumor around that it will reopen; speculation is great but facts are few. So please, before you make a special trip to town to visit verify that Mullens is, indeed, open for business.

I enjoy coming here with friends and getting some good ice cream. The chocolate dipped waffle cones are the best. The place could be cleaner. I feel like it is dingy and needs updating. The repainting over the summer helped.

You know, I'm just glad they're here, staying in the game. The ice cream is great; our big family has been there a bunch of times. Never eaten their regular food. Service is maybe a little slow, yeah, and it's young girls doing the work,...More
