Loved it!

I tried many of the flavors here during our stay in Martha's Vineyard recently. The shop wasn't busy and the employee let me try all of the flavors I wanted like pistachio, Oreo cream, Reese's cream and black raspberry. I ended up getting Snickers, which was delicious!

So many people spoke highly of this ice cream parlor, but I found it to be dead average. The flavors were barely discernable despite the base being creamy. But it was really overpriced for what you get in my opinion. A small cone with some walnuts on the side was over $6!

Coming from health-conscious NJ, I forgot how delicious full-fat ice cream is. The blueberry and peppermint were my favorites; they do have fro-yo, but go for the ice cream- it's worth it!

We were three generations visiting Mad Martha's. I had the chocolate almond chip special of the week ice cream. It was excellent. The others in our party had cones and sundaes. Service was on the slow side, the prices were what we considered high, over four dollars for a single scoop ice cream cone. The whipped cream seemed to come... More

Loved it all around - great choices for flavors, delicious ice cream, friendly staff. This is quintessential small town Ice cream shop, right down to the jukebox in the corner turning out classic tunes. I had a sugar cone of strawberry (my classic litmus test) and the team from Mad Martha's delivered - big chunks of strawberry, creamy, rich texture,... More

Is there such a thing as bad ice cream? I really could not tell them apart from the others in the area. Had vanilla, blueberry, coconut and black raspberry.

I really don't know what all the rave is about? I wasn't impressed with the product at all . I had chocolate chip and was disappointed. Maybe I should of asked for a taste first, and chose something else but it didn't wow me t all.

Good ice cream, but no real place to sit, just a few uncomfortable chairs. Plenty of choices, I tried the flavor of the day, Butterfinger, tasty.

As I walked back and forth looking at the different ice creams the female that was behind the counter did not acknowledge me or my friend. A male emerged from the back and asked me if he can help me. This was my first time at Mad Martha's and I wasn't impressed with the service. The ice cream was fine.

Had the double-chocolate ice cream. Really good. Nice ice-cream-parlor vibe to the place. The one in Oak Bluffs also has a Skinny's sandwich shop.
