We were told about this place from our concierge and I was shocked at how amazing this place was! The butter crunch was beyond amazing, it was cold outside but the ice cream was too good to put down! I can't wait to come back to this place!

We stopped for a cone here on a warm summers day in Oak Bluffs. This was one of the best impulse things I did all day!! Caveat Emptor!! The kids size is plenty big! It is a bit expensive at over $4, but the unique flavors make the purchase worth it. I had Triple Chocolate, which consisted of a creamy... More

Skip every where else and just come here. The ice cream is crazy creative and decadent. They have some wild favors like lobster or buttered popcorn as well as some more traditional ones like cotton candy - that aren't just pink or blue dyed junk but real vanilla ice cream with real cotton candy. The mocha chip is out of... More

There are ice cream palces every 5 feet in Oak Bluffs and especially down Circuit Ave. this is the one my husband kept wanting to go back to. We ate too much ice cream and loved every bite. Fresh, delicious and even the small was almost too much to eat!!

You can't. Lots of excellent ice cream, at a value price, in tons of flavors. Not to be had in NY, at least in Westchester. Too bad Ben or Bill doesn't open a place here. Don't bother with the other ice cream places in Martha's Vineyard - I tried them all - Ben and Bill's is the best. But..........I finally... More

When you walk in, it's like going back in time. On the left, there's something like 50 flavors of homemade ice cream. On the right, there's a wall of chocolate and candy. The ice cream was very good. We had the vanilla with heath bar. We sampled the mocha which was really good except we didn't want the coffee so... More

Ice cream was some of the best I have had, but one of the servers misunderstood what I said and got annoyed when it was their own fault, which was a shame really as that was my only hiccup. If you are in Oak Bluffs and want a good ice cream, this is the place to visit!

My husband and I went here for gelato. They gave a good selection of gelato and sorbet flavors. I tried their key lime gelato. It was delicious. It was very creamy and flavorful. It had bits of Graham crackers in it. My husband had the lemon sorbet. He liked his too. We also try their dark chocolate covered Graham crackers.... More

What a GREAT place for ice cream. It's too bad this isn't on the restaurant category on TA?? The chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cookie dough is seriously a revelation. Why doesn't everybody make that flavor?!? The 4 stars instead of 5 are for the value.. $4.50 for 1 scoop? Also just a funny tidbit.. they offer lobster ice... More
