Take it from an Ice Cream fanatic, Smugglers is the BEST!

I have been coming to Cape Cod for 55 years and have been to many of the so called best ice cream places on Cape Cod, even the one's where the "famous people" go but I am very happy to say that Smugglers really is the best ice cream on the Cape! Not only is the ice cream great but... read more

Smugglers does not have sprinkles (jimmies). There is no established line, it is every man for himself.

Our family ate everything from Vanilla to Coconut Flavors and went back a few nights during our vacation. Also enjoyed their root beer floats.

Had the chocolate pb sundae and in my opinion this was the best ice cream I have had yet on cape cod!!!! Yes I've been to sundae school and I'm not impressed. The flavor and texture of smugglers ice cream was spot on and decadent. Also the service was super friendly. Highly recommended! I will be back. Thank you to... More

Stopped here since there are so many positive reviews and was not disappointed. My son had the strawberry which he declared was the best he ever had and I had the Hot Fudge Sunday with chocolate chip ice cream. First, the ice cream was excellent with lots of wedges of chocolate. Second, the sunday had the right balance of topping... More

Stopped at the Ice Cream Smuggler after watching the sunset on Mayflower Beach. Line was long but the ice cream was great. They have a wide variety as well so there is something for everyone.

This is the third year I am coming here with my family. This is the best desert after a lobster night dinner at home. We always take our order to go. Place is always crowded however, the line moves very fast. The service is good and they let you try other flavors if you are interested. Again love it...

A great place to stop for ice cream after the beach. A young, friendly staff that keeps the line moving. Lots of yummy flavors. Seating indoors or outdoors.

I was a bit underwhelmed by this place, even though I've heard good things about it. We decided to go for ice cream after attending a play at the Cape Playhouse (just down the road) and the Smuggler was not only close, but was probably the ONLY option for ice cream at that hour. We walked in about 5 min... More
