Get the black raspberry

Mad Martha's is always a favorite stop for our family. We unanimously recommend the black raspberry--it is amazing. My chocolate-loving four-year old got an Oreo ice cream cone this time, but ended up sneaking away my husband's black raspberry as soon as he had a chance.

The lady serving was impatient, the ice cream flavors are tasty, worth a visit. Close to the carousel but there are other locally made ice-cream options in the vicinity, I wouldn't visit the store again due to the poor service.

I enjoyed a large single scoop of homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream. There are lots of places to get ice cream in Edgartown, I didn't get to try the others, but Mad Martha's was delicious!

Great Ice Cream at Mad Martha's on North Water Street. You can also get deli sandwiches if you want a snack before you have some of their Ice Cream. This is a very popular spot and they let you have free tastes if you are not sure which flavor you want. Definitely worth the trip.

Great place. They had a variety of flavors. I recommend the Oreo ice cream with m&ms as a topping. The customer service was really good.

Ice cream and chocolates of all kinds of flavors. We were there for the ice cream. They offer sugar free ice cream, sherberts, low fat and in flavors never heard of like LOBSTER! We stuck to some more familar flavors - mine was Black forrest - dark cherries and almonds in a sinfully delicious - but not over rich chocolate.... More

This brewery has been around for just about 2 years and man is it growing fast. Starting to distribute nationally, but their newest and best original brews are only available at the "little" brewery bar in Edgartown. Their "Martha's Vineyard Ale" is available OFF ISLAND as they say:) Bottoms up

We have gone to Mad Martha's for many years. Despite our long history, I've tried to talk to the head office regarding allergy concerns. They never return my calls and different locations on the Island give different stories. The Edgartown location is especially rude about allergy questions. It's simple - pull out a container or two for allergy kids. Use... More

This venerable institution has fallen on hard times. The ice cream is weak on flavor—just not up to today's standards. And we stood through a verbal tussle between a self-satisfied server and a frankly astonished customer . . . only to then see the manager weigh in equally unpleasantly on the side of the scooper. Unusual for the Vineyard where... More
