They serve up wonderful real ice cream here with lots of choices. It is a bit pricy but most things are on the island. It was the first time I had ice cream in 5 months and we went back a second time too.

Everyone mentions the ice cream, but Mad Martha's also sells a few flavors of hard frozen yogurt. We happen to love the Sinful Chocolate which has chunks of chocolate and broken Heath bars. The big drawback are the prices. One scoop for my wife, two scoops for me and $10.05 gone in a flash.

Go to Stop and Shop and get a pint of Ben and Jerry's . Not worth the price or the wait. I get the owners only have a few months out of the year to make their money but please 2 year olds cannot even eat a scoop!

Mad Marthas's has the reputation for having the best icecream on the island, so we decided to try it. It's a bit on the expensive side and nothing special. The seating area was also a bit dirty and ragged looking.

While all the flavors of ice cream offered looked delicious, the Sinful Chocolate flavor was the best!

The ice cream is wonderful,however it is always crowded, so there is a wait & it's best to find a place outside nearby to relax with a cone or dish.

Ice cream or frozen yogurt, all excellent. This place has been around for decades. It doesn't get any better for ice cream.

No trip to Edgartown is complete without a visit to Mad Martha's. Went twice this time, once for packed ice cream containers to take to the family.

Okay let me start by saying I am not a big ice cream person. I have it a couple of times a summer and I'm good. We went to mad Martha's and I was going to pass until I saw the butter crunch. It was loaded with crunchy pieces! So I ordered it and devoured it and ate it again... More

After walking through Edgartown we opted to have some ice cream we had already tried the scoop shack so we wanted to try Mad Marthas. I ordered the orange pineapple ice cream which was really good but I mostly tasted orange and vanilla with very little pineapple, but overall it was delicious. My wife got a mocha chip which she...
