Excellent ice cream with plenty of flavors to pick from

We actually went here twice because it was so good and convenient when leaving the beach. I like that they offer a smaller size dish for kids, if you ask, which is cheaper than a single scoop. We loved all the flavors we tried: coconut, pistachio, chocolate peanut butter, and beach plum. The line... read more

Been going here for years. Great selection of ice cream - I love the Ginger and my husband always gets the Chocolate Chip. Service is good. You can sit inside or at tables out front. We can't drive down Rt. 6A without stopping!

Delicious ice cream and frozen yogurt! Generous portions and a great variety of flavors. A real treat on a hot summer day.

then stop here for a great selection of flavors and smiling college coeds delivering excellent service and fairly large scoops. Pleasant outdoor seating front and back. One of our GO-To ice cream spots.

Very few places on the Cape stay open much after 9pm. Smuggler is one that bucks the trend. It hasn't changed much in the 40-odd years it's been in operation and a recent visit proved the ice cream is just as good as ever. Mint chocolate chip and cookies and cram were a delicious dessert after a dinner nearby. And... More

My husband and I each ordered two scoops of ice cream in a cup. The server proceeded to put what she called two scoops in the smallest cup they had which didn't leave any room for the chocolate sauce. We questioned her about two scoops and she copped an attitude. We have had ice cream there in the past and... More

Wonderful selection of ice cream. Their apple pie a la mode ice cream is the perfect choice for dessert.

Love this little ice cream store! And they are so very nice and accommodating. Our son has a nut allergy, and the girls go out of their way to open a new container of ice cream and use a clean scoop to reduce the chance of cross-contamination. You won't be sorry if you come -- but bring cash, credit cards... More

Does not compare to Four Seas in Centerville, but much closer to home so go once a summer. Flavors are fairly typical and not outstanding. Portions are big though
