One great, one disappointing

My partner had a peanut butter type flavor that he loved and I also thought it was great after having a bite. I had the chocolate truffle and was very disappointed. It had a stale taste that tells me the batch had not sold quickly and could no longer be sold as fresh ice cream. But since it is... read more

I love a good local ice cream shop, but this was one of the best I've visited. The ice cream, which is homemade, was phenomenal. I had the peanut butter/chocolate sundae with the chocolate/PB ice cream. I normally don't get dessert, let alone finish it, but I'd ruin my diet any day for this. It's been a long time since...

We also stop at the Mystic Drawbridge Ice-Cream on our visit to Mystic. We like to eat our ice cream and watch the boats sail back and forth under the bridge :)

Enjoy excellent home made ice cream in a wonderful downtown setting adjacent to an old fashion draw bridge, This town and store are just wonderful.

Can't beat the location - right at the Drawbridge. Great to sit outside on the side if you get a seat and watch the bridge. Also great to grab some ice cream and just sit outside and people watch.

If you read my review of S & P Oyster Co, one thing I omitted purposely was dessert. Why, you ask? Also thanks to TripAdvisor, we'd found reviews to an ice cream shop not even a two minute walk away from the restaurant. After dinner, we crossed the Mystic Drawbridge at dusk and entered the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream place.... More

We've had delicious ice cream from this sho pin the past, but recently stopped in for a coffee drink. I had a hot Snickers latte and my husband had the Almond Joy. Both were delicious, but I really liked the Almond Joy latte. We had it with lowfat milk so we could enjoy a bit of whipped cream on top!... More

Chocolate lovers! Do yourself a favor, just this once, stray from your delectable norm and give the Lemon Chocolate Kiss a try! It is Lemon Custer Ice Cream with dark chocolate shavings. I asked for a lil melted hot fudge and shaved almonds on mine. Heavenly. That's all I gotta say...heavenly.

It's perfect, they have so many options to choose from! They let you sample the ice cream, which is definitely a plus. This is always a must when going to Mystic.
