Description: A favorite of Locals and Visitors alike! Come get a taste of the summer at Nantucket Ice Cream (open mid-May to mid-October). As the original home of Nantucket Nectars, we offer the island's best smoothies, in addition to gourmet ice cream, homemade cookies, snacks, cold drinks, coffee, hot dogs and take away breakfast. We are the closest stop to the Hy-Line Ferry and literally located ON the harbor! Come grab a cone and walk the docks while looking at the some of the world's most beautiful yachts... We love our office and we know you will too!

Lots of good choices and delicious too. The set price made it easy to take away a big cone without fumbling with your change.

Pop in for a juice at the end of the wharf! Yummy! It is a walk in only place, but perfect for a quick needed thirst quench. I think they also sell t-shirts.

It's small and busy, but the ice cream is excellent. A $6 tub is too much; the £5.25 is plenty. Not very many flavour choices, unfortunately. There are 4 tables outside to sit at, overlooking a small part of the wharf. Not very glamorous or scenic.

We make this a 'must stop' every time we come to Nantucket. Sometimes we have to wait, which is always entertaining when you start chatting with the people in line with you, but other times we just breeze right in! We have never been disappointed and I'd say the only complaint is which flavor to choose! My son had a... More

Only place on island where you can get a great smoothie! Perfect to cool off with one of those or one of their many ice cream flavors on a hot day, or while strolling through town at night or after dinner. Love getting a treat and walking down the docks. Great pick-me-up while getting on and off the island (located... More

No matter if you just stepped off of the ferry, or are shopping on the wharf after dinner, this is a super place to find great sweets and treats. The ice cream is an "old school" type, with lots of calories, and not your average "store bought" stuff! I suggest you forget your diet, and just enjoy. Heck, it is... More

Always a treat, despite the long lines. I love the rich flavors and those hand rolled up cup/cone is just divine!

This is THE PLACE for ice cream in Nantucket. Creative flavors, creative names for the flavors, something new each day (try the delicious home baked waffle cones, but make sure you dont get a burned one!!). There are 2 doors, but 3 or 4 annoying lines when you get inside, and you never know which one will move faster, so... More

Even so it moves fast. There are two doors, either seems to be an entrance so choose one. There is no inside seating so it's grab and go. Send your two strongest clearest thinking people inside. Let them sort it out. Have a good idea what you want and be ready to blurt it out. Once you've made your haul... More

A definite must any time you are in Nantucket. The ice cream is delicious with always changing interesting flavors and the waffle cones are the best we have tried anywhere! Long slow moving lines are the only minor complaint. A fun place to return to year after year, ice cream cones eaten by the water on a hot day takes... More
