In Oak Bluffs there are three homemade ice cream spots across from each other. We hit all three and I highly recommend Mad Marthas. I think we all got the fantabulous chocolate the first night and it made us come back the next afternoon. You can not go wrong. They were all good but I am definitely not mad at... More

We had an afternoon snack and ate at the park. Icecream was good. A bit expensive but to be expected on MV. Service was good.

Delicious ice cream and an interesting story about Mad Martha! Young staff were very service oriented and there were many flavors to choose from.

Overated. Ice cream was ok, have had far better. Only worth the line if you must have ice cream, but not a must visit like some reviewers will lead you to believe.

Mad Martha's had so many different flavor ice cream so we tried the ones that we don't get in other places and they were so good!

I don't know if it's hard to get staffing..or whatever..but huge disappointment after many years of visiting island. Ben & Bernie's was killing it--& I guess times change. Butter crunch-usually a winner-was overly-crunchy to frozen & difficult to even chew..Sad to see. Tell 'Big Dog'--it was good "back in the day"..but, sadly, no more...

Anyone who reads travel guides will know that a trip to Martha's Vineyard without a taste of Mad Martha's is impossible, since all of the travel guides mention it. We followed the guide to the T and had a black raspberry ice-cream and it was simply awesome. I am glad we tried it and would recommend anyone who loves ice-cream... More

Just a side store ice cream shack but DELICIOUS. There were 15 of us and we were in and out and happy folks. Great ice cream, shakes, etc. Stop by, it is a treat. Especially after riding the vintage carousel.
