Staff was helpful and pleasant. The line moved quickly. Prices were comparable to other ice cream places in the area. But the ice cream was soft. Mind you we ordered "hard serve" cones. I had ordered some type of frozen yogurt flavor - but that was the problem - it was so unmemorable I can't remember the name or even... More

The best of the best, Martel ' s ice cream is rich and creamy and the flavors are always creative and delicious. My husband loves the milky way, and my favorite is the fluffernutter.We both love the coconut chip. The owner is friendly and the service is always good.

Martel's is a tradition in the area. The opening and closing of the seasons are judged by the the opening and closing of Martel's. A must do if you are on Rt. 1 and have an ice cream attack. Enjoy!

arrived to Martel's at 8:43. They do close at 9, but we were greeted to a couple going out the door and it being pulled shut and LOCKED! The window in the front slid open and the woman who was clearly the boss says "what do you want?" My sarcastic side said "I wanted to come in and get some... More

If you want yummy, homemade ice cream, stop here. Locals know it, summer residents know it, now you too are in on it...Right on Rte. 1. Yes, it's "just" ice cream, but what a treat. DO NOT MISS OUT ON IT...

The ice cream and service Martel's are excellent. One thing to note is they are very generous with their serving sizes. A small here is bigger than a large I have had at other locations.

I dream about this ice cream all winter long, when summer comes it's Martell's for our family! The ice cream here is some of the best I have ever had.
