John's is one of our favorite places to go every time we come out for the week, especially because of the prices (compared to everything else in the area). Whether you get a full meal or just ice cream, it's all delicious and definitely worth a visit.

a lot of flavors and freshness make this the best ice cream in town and you can eat outdoors as the inside is basic take-out style place

How can you not love Ice cream after a fun day in Montauk. They were closing up but we're still nice enough to let us in and have a scoop of mint chocolate chip and chocolate chocolate chip . Delicious

This is a burger joint. That being said, I was craving a milkshake and their sign reads "Homemade Ice Cream". When I ordered a chocolate shake, I noticed the young lady behind the counter was preparing it with an artificial chocolate syrup!! So I asked her, "you have homemade ice cream right? Do you think I could have a shake... More

A little pricey for small cone costing almost $5 but had a child asking Mommy for icecream on a hot day. She enjoyed it!

Fantastic homemade ice cream. Peanut butter blast (with Reese's PB cup pieces) for me, Banana with peanut butter & fudge for my wife. You can taste the freshness.

This place is awesome. The guy at the counter was so accommodation and kind. He basically scooped me the best cone of my life and I never thanked him for it - haha, but seriously. I told him what I liked and he asked if he could surprise me. It was excellent. I also got a burger, which I ended... More
