Excellent ice cream

Great homemade ice cream. The portions are not huge but that is probably because it is homemade and not cheapo junk. Not a lot of indoor seating. The service was great as I have a nut allergy and they were overly helpful and cautious to use a new scooper on a fresh batch from the back. Went back... read more

The ice cream is delicious - but it's always crowded. It's also cash only. We usually order pints and a half pint of hot fudge and bring it back to the house and enjoy it there. I've never found another ice cream like their vanilla chai, so delicious!

Small town ice cream place with big flavors. I really wanted a flavor where I couldn't get anywhere else and the cantaloupe ice cream was out of this world. I also got the peach which was good but over powered by the cantaloupe. The texture of the ice cream was very pleasant too. They use fresh ingredients and you really... More

This place is legendary to natives. They think the ice cream is the best on the planet. It is good, but is ain't the best. It's expensive too.

This ice cream shop is a classic. From their malted shakes to their sundaes, you can't go wrong. Only tip, go on a weekday, the weekends are nuts and the lines are long.

Our family decided to get some ice cream during mid afternoon as we stayed across the street. Overall the place is small and you need to go inside to place and pickup your order. The place gets jam packed in the evening so if you go plan accordingly. As others have stated the ice cream is good but nothing special.... More

We heard from both locals and visitors that this was the best ice cream around Hyannis. When we arrived at 8:30 pm on Friday, the line snaked around the parking lot. As it was our last night of vacation, we decided to wait. It was well worth it (and the line moved quickly). The ice cream was fresh and creamy... More

Do not be fooled by places that say they are homemade. They use artificial flavorings to flavor your ice cream! For example, instead of real strawberries they use chemicals that taste like strawberry. Four Seas makes ice cream the way it is suppose to be made with real ingredients and no artificial flavorings (which is why every flavor is gluten... More
