great ice cream; lots of rules

this place does a blockbuster business - lines most of the day in the summer - and the reason is the ice cream. If you love super creamy ice cream and fresh fruit flavors, it can't be beat. BUT, know what you want when you get to the counter because the servers get impatient and there are no... read more

If you visit the Cape, this place is a must to visit. Small inside but who cares, we ate our ice cream outside as it was a nice summer evening. No lines and the staff truly hustled to keep things moving. Cash only! Atm is in the lot which we used with no problem. We will be coming back again.

This well known little spot has great ice cream but also excellent lobster rolls. Can be packed on summer nights but service is quick and great!

Delicious. Rich and creamy. A wonderful treat. Lines can be long so be prepared to wait. Lots of parking in adjacent lot. Try the peach. It is a Kennedy Family (JFK) favorite.

It's like a little diner. There's a bar with stools and it's usually crowded. Visitors order cones, sundaes and shakes; people who live there are stopping by for quarts to go. There are daily or seasonal ice cream specials.

I've been coming to the Four Seas since the early 1970s. It's one of the true classic ice cream shops in the country. I literally love all the flavors but if I had to pick the top few it would be: black raspberry, fresh peach, strawberry. Hot fudge is heavenly. I also love the sandwiches: simple and tasty after a...

We have been going to Four Seas for over thirty-three years. It is simply the best ice-cream on Cape Cod. My favorite flavor is the mocha chip, and I have it in a hot-fudge sundae. I appreciate the students who work there every summer and everyone who comes is happy to enjoy this tasty treat after a day on the... More

Each time returning to the Cape, the first stop is to reach Four Seas place and start to relax from the long drive we just did (we are based in Montreal) with their wonderful ice cream. And no exception for me to pick the fabulous coconut : no one can beat it !

Have been coming here for years first as a kid and will now have brought my kids to experience the wonderful ice cream. The store is a throwback to the time where big franchise ice cream was not a thought. Great stop for after swimming at nearby Craigville beach or a evening stroll or ride after dinner.
