I love bringing the family to ice cream smuggler. They have lots of great flavors and places to sit inside and out. PS - don't ask for sprinkles.

Smuggler is a Dennis fixture, serving home-made ice-cream in many flavors - nearly anything you want is there. They always have a few sugar-free options, too. Yummy hot fudge. Very crowded at popular hours, but worth waiting for. Speedy service, reasonable cost. Will pack pints & quarts to go. Eat in or eat out in the parking lot out back.... More

Love going here, any time of the season you visit you always receive amazing customer service. Love trying out all the new flavors and we love the new chairs/ benches out the back. A must pit stop when coming back from the beach

Fabulous variety of flavors. The frozen yogurt is the best ever. Can be very crowded arriving before 7pm is recommended.

A lot of great choices of flavors and toppings. Staff is efficient and friendly. Atmosphere is comfortable and fun. They were giving out fun ice cream hats and we all loved them! Excellent!

Without exaggeration I think we went here about ten times in five weeks! My husband is an ice cream addict. This cash only spot serves wonderful ice cream and the servers are very friendly. I liked the chocolate peanut butter yogurt and my husband's favorite was rum raisin. Lots of flavors to choose from. Remember...cash or checks only.

Glad we got here before the end of the season! While we have our favorites, we do like to try the places listed as "Best of Cape Cod" and this one certainly didn't disappoint. The ice cream had excellent flavor, and they make a mean hot fudge sundae. Yes, would definitely pop in here again for another dish!

Hot fudge, hot butterscotch, not sure it matters. Although during this visit two of us got these flavors. Really enjoyed the layering of the hot fudge. Bottom layer started to harden by the time you reached it. Yummy fudge flavor.

Our friends took us here on the first day of our visit to cape cod and we have been back most days since. The ice cream is lovely, and the service is superb. We are made to feel so welcome every time, and was our baby girl's first ice cream - she certainly loves it!

We just came back from 3 nights to Cape Cod and we had ice cream quite a bit. We found this place to be cheerful and very popular. Good variety of ice cream flavours, good service and CLEAN!
