Can't go wrong

Great ice cream and confections in a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. My only complaint is that I had to order a double in order to combine two flavors. Very busy on a Friday night in summer, but well worth the wait.

I don't think that the ice cream at this shop is as good as the reviews indicate. I admit to being a fan of JP Licks and Rancatore's. It is a cute little place, though, serving ice cream in glass dishes.

The Boston area has many ice cream stores; however, my friends and I agree that this is one of the best. I am a creature of habit and usually have their mocha lace and coffee heath bar. I recently went there and took three friends who had never been there before Without any prodding from me they all ordered the... More

We went here with our large party after dinner. The array of flavors is dizzying. We went with a chocolate orgy flavor and pistachio combo. The chocolate was awesome. The portions are huge. Can see why there can be long lines. I could get a kids scoop next time and be fine. There is a small sitting area with jenga... More

Lizzy's is a great post-dinner spot to wind down and enjoy some sugar. They have a wide array of flavor choices, cone choices, topping choices, and more-than-just-ice-cream choices. I was able to mix and match my flavors in my waffle cone, which was great to satisfy my sweet craving. We will definitely return!

I've been going to Lizzy's since they opened a long time ago... I don't go as often as I would like but I went 2 weeks ago and it was just as I remembered. Everything is fresh and very flavorful. I just wish they'd expand the store for more seating. But it is great during the summer...

The best tasting ice cream in the area. We order an ice cream cake for our annual event and 100 guests enjoy every bit, many having seconds.

Lizzy's is an ice ream parlor not a restaurant. The goodies are excellent. Numerous flavors of this homemade treat. I always, being old school, get vanilla. One cannot go wrong by getting their own choice . Sundae! banana split! All great. Get there early during summer evenings to beat the after dinner crowd or those just lusting for the ice... More

We love Lizzy's. Have been going there for years in Harvard Square and was so pleased to stumble across their Waltham store. This place makes everyone in our family happy as my wife can't eat dairy so she loves their tofutti. Mocha Lace is my favorite flavor. The best part is that they will give you a "mini" cone which...

me and my companion had two flavors each and all four were not very strong-tasting in flavor...quite faint. Rather expensive also at more than $4 for two small scoops.
